A Tribute to Sandie Gough

Its with deep sadness as i type this . One of our amazing Design Team member Sandie Gough passed away this week . We are heartbroken and devastated at this news 
Sandie can only be described  as amazing , She had a loyal nature and always made us smile , 
We have decided to share some of Sandie's creations , with a few words from the rest of the DT 

Our sincere and deepest condolences go out to Sandie’s family. We are thinking of you at this most difficult time.

DT Lisa 

It is with a heavy heart I sit here and write about one of the most beautiful people in the crafting world.

Sandie was a beautiful lady, inside and out. She was beyond compare in the crafting world and I will miss her. The last thing she said to me was that she would never leave me, and always be around to support me. I kinda lost it a bit when i re-read this the other day, but upon thinking, I know she will always be there, sitting on her craft cloud inspiring me from heaven. Her designs are around me, from the gorgeous fish tank she created to the amazing Betty Boots samples she made for me.. I have some gorgeous makes from Sandie in my shop so her incredible talent will continue to inspire crafters, new and old, for a long time to come.
My thoughts are with her amazing family. I have no words to convey how I am feeling, let alone how they must feel....
The world has lost much of its colour right now, but I am hoping in time, this will return and I am able to smile at all the things that remind me of Sandie rather than make me cry.

The craft world will never be the same without Sandie .. she always has
 a calming nature with me and i loved how loyal she was , My last words to her where 'Sup it up buttercup ' pretty much sums up how i adored 
this women , Sometimes you meet people in life who will always be part 
of your life and for me Sandie will always be that lady  ... R.I.P you 
beautiful women ...
This creation that Sandie made was out of this world and i adored her style 

DT Trudie 
Sandie made me this beautiful card last year for my 40th. I'm so lucky to have such a special reminder of how wonderful she was. Sandie was one of the kindest people I ever had the chance to know, although we never met in person there is a hole where she once was. Her talent was immeasurable and next time I see a rainbow I will know she has her pens out and is colouring away still!

DT Nicola 
 I love this one. I'm shocked, stunned and saddened that we've lost this fabulously talented, lovely kind lady. A truly beautiful spirit, like a butterfly now so beautiful and spreading her wings for her spirit to fly free. I felt inspired by her and I admired our friend Sandie xxx

DT Amanda 

 Still in shock here as so many of us are. all i can think to say was she 

was an amazing, talented and a great person and will be so missed by 

everyone who knew her and to use the Sugar Shrine which was a 

stunning piece of artworkxx

DT Lucy 
 I feel lucky to have been in a DT with Sandie. She was such an inspiring

 crafter - always coming out with amazing ideas & providing so much 

support and encouragement to others. So many of her creations had me 
sitting with my mouth open in awe. She'll be hugely missed xxx

DT Kay 

 i didnt know Sandie that well, but she was always so encoraging and 

supportive, and a great inspiration she will be missed and the craft 

community has lost a little bit of sparkle xx
