A flower for Dave...

I am saddened to tell you that last Thursday the general manager for Stampin' Up! Australia, Dave Abbott, lost his valiant fight with illness and passed away. I had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions at Stampin' Up! events and he was one of those people that always had a sparkle in his eye and a geniune grin.

I wouldn't feel it necessary to post this sort of news to my blog, except that Stampin' Up! is setting up a fund in Dave's honour to help his wife and three young children by releasing a stamp set in November with the proceeds of sales in all Stampin' Up! markets going to the fund for his family. I will post further details as I have them...

The flower pictured above is my contribution to a paper bouquet for Dave's family that was the idea of one of my fellow demonstrators, Michelle. I thought it was a lovely idea and was pleased to be able to participate.
