Tribute to Lindsey

 Hello Crafters,

We are deeply saddened to share the news that we lost our treasured friend and teammate, Lindsey, last week, following her hard-fought battle with cancer. Lindsey was well-known for her amazing creativity, witty sense of humor, and immense capacity to support and encourage her design team members and challenge participants. The crafting community will miss her shining light.
Today The Seize the Birthday Team is playing along with their Sister Challenge-Color Hues where Lindsey was also a Design Team Member. This challenge was to be hosted by Lindsey, so the Design Team wants to honor and celebrate her beautiful, creative life by sharing "Lindsey Inspired" projects using her Blue and Purple combination, along with things she loved the most, as inspiration. We hope that you will join us as we pay tribute to our dear friend and teammate.

Here are a few of her favorite things:
humor, cats
love of reading
*If you are a regular at Color Hues and/or Seize the Birthday you might also know that Lindsey loved Clean and Simple cards too.
We would love for you to join us and you can find all the details along with inspiration from both of the Design Teams over at the Color Hues blog below.
Here is my card to pay tribute to Lindsey.  I used flowers on my card as that was one of Lindsey's favorites (and mime too).
I used Spcllbinders Be Bold Blooms for the flowers and foliage.  I sponged SU Balmy Blue ink in the centers of the large flowers and added a die cut Balmy Blue small flower to the centers, plus a white enamel dot to finigh them.  The leaves and stems were cut from SU Sahara Sand (neutral).  The small buds were cut from Balmy Blue and layered over a Highland Heather bud which shows through the small die cut circle in the bud.  The flowers were glued on the white panel, which is die cut with a Spellbinders Hemstitch Oval and then mounted on a Highland Heather mat.  The foliage were glued under the edges of the flower petals.  The sentiment is from SU Happy Thoughts. 
 I thought the sentiment was appropriate as we are all thinking of Lindsey.  My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will join in this wonderful tribute to Lindsey.
 Happy Stamping
