For My Mum!

Hello everyone,

I'm really sorry I haven't been around to visit you this week, but my Dad had a massive stroke in the early hours of Wednesday morning. I've spent the last few days at the hospital with my Mum, he's very poorly. They come as a pair and she just doesn't know what to do. It's only 8 weeks since we lost my Nana (Dads mum). This was really a blessing as she was 102 years old and in alot of pain but. . .what a year so far!

Anyway sorry for babbling on, I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and made a couple of cards. It really did help me feel a bit calmer just not sure they're any good!!


I know I've used this image on a few of my cards already but it's my mums favourite and I wanted to make her a nice card for tomorrow. She doesn't like things overly fussy so was a bit worried about the ribbon but I think she'll like it. The butterfly background paper is from a 'Pepper & Friends' collection.


I've coloured her up with promarkers and added some glitter on the wings.  I've finished off with the usual joy!crafts die flowers and a bit of ribbon.

I was hoping to go to the GNPE at Harrogate today, but it's the hospital instead. So if you are there have a great day. I'll save my pennies for the next one!
