The CCEE Stampers are doing a tribute for Charlene Merrick today. Charlene would have been celebrating her birthday today, Jan. 22. Being an alumni, they have asked me to join them. I was on the CCEE Stampers design team with Charlene when she was diagnosed with liver and brain cancer. She was so brave and fought a good battle which she lost Jan.2, 2014.
We were to case a card of Charlene's or use something on the card showing what she loved.
Charlene was a Dirty Dozen member on Splitcoaststampers where she was known as Lilluvstampin and was a terrific cardmaker. She was a such a kind and fun person. I know she was crazy for penguins and I remember she said her favorite colors were purple, blue, and red. I think she would like my card. I'm sure Charlene's chased a few snowflakes in her life. Of course, if you've ever been to her blog, wheremmsgatherandmycreations, you would know she also loved M&M's. I had to smile every time I saw the name of her blog.
Charlene will be greatly missed.
