Good news, bad news and a card

Hi there!

The last month has been hard, but it has also learned me a lot about myself and what I want to do with my life. 
For those of you who wonder what's been gooing on, I can tell that my mum died on Crete when she was on a trip with some friends. It was a shock to all of us, she was seeming pretty healthy before she left, but after only two days on the Greek island, her aorta cracked and she died within only a couple of minutes. 
Now I use the cardmaking as a therapy - it's good to think of other things... 

But this was the sad news - I've got some really good news too!! :)
For those of you that knows me, you also know that I looooove the Sweet Pea Stamps. And I'm so lucky to be one of the girls on the Sweet Pea Stamps DT now!! Wuhuuu! Which means I'm able to work even more with the fantastic stamps!! :) I'm really excited!!
I've made a SPS card using the October sketch from my fav sketch challenge blog, CLP Challenge (which I've been so lucky to be a part of earlier! Lucky me!!) 
For my card, I've been using the supercute Elisabeth Bell stamp named Sitting with Teddy, coloring her up with my Distress reinkers. 
Here are some pics:
