House Mouse - A Tribute to Joanne

The House Mouse challenge this week is a sketch. but we were asked also to make a card in memory of Joanne (a regular entrant to the HM challenge)
who died suddenly this week her family posted the following on her blog -


"Joanne spread much joy through her card making. If you would like to do something in memory of her, we are sure she would like you to send a card to someone in need."

I personally will miss her blond, bubbly hair, her wonderful smile and the lovely comments she left on my blog.
I used Basic Grey Wassail papers, coloured the image in watercolours. The sentiment is Aud designs and ribbon and the rest from stash.
