Challenge #91 Insects at Left of Center

Hi!! Long time no blog! I've managed to make a card for this week's challenge at Left of Center. The theme is 'Insects' and our sponsor this week is Sami Stamps! I hope you can join in with us!
I've used the 'Spiderhugs' image and coloured it with Promarkers and pencils. My DP and ribbon are scraps from my stash and I've used a sentiment from Create with TLC. The die cut web is from Cheery Lyn and the glittery spider is Jolee's Boutique.

Memorial Hop for Lily Chilvers of The Octopode Factory

I recently started working for Cancer Research UK as the manager of one of their retail stores, focused on selling donated goods to help pay for research into over 200 types of cancer. We recently lost my aunt after a gruelling battle against Breast Cancer which metastasised into her bones. Two of my other aunts and my brother have all battled one form or other of this devastating disease. 

And then we lost Lily. A wonderful artist, beautiful person inside and out. A great light has gone out. 
The plan was for this hop to remember her and her art and pay tribute to that light. I regretfully haven't been able to make a new project for this hop, with the job and school holidays, it's just been crazy and time slipped away... as it so often does.
Here are a few projects that I have made in the past with some of her images.
The blog list is further down the post. I hope you enjoy this hop.

 I love David Bowie and being able to get him in digi format as Jarrod is amazing!

I love the other movie references that Lily created too - 

Thank you for your wonderful art Lily, Rest in Peace.
