Well Mother's Day has come and gone and it's always a sad time of year for me as I lost my mum almost 6 years ago. My sons did me proud though and we all went out for a meal as it was my DIL's birthday the same day. I received a lovely bunch of flowers and a patio rose plant for the garden from my youngest son and his wife. My oldest son, DIL and grand-daughters gave me such a lovely surprise. He had my grandfather's WWI medals and the letter from the Admiralty stating he went down with his ship the HMS Goliath and a letter from King George V send with the memorial medal for those who died in WWI, all mounted in a wonderful frame. I just love it.

One of the medals is missing but I am hoping I can get a replacement once I find out how to go about it.

I am off on holiday on Saturday for a week so no postings on the blog for a while. I am looking forward to the break as I am still not feeling 100% so hoping I will feel refreshed when I come back.

Take care all and haste ye back.........

Birthday card

It has taken me longer than I thought to make my next card as my diabetes is not behaving and I have been feeling really awful these last couple of days. Not to be beaten I have struggled today and finally finished the card. It is for my DIL's birthday so hope she is not checking out my blog anytime soon.

Stamped and embossed PTI stamps and sentiment then did butterflies again and mounted them onto card. Added gems and ribbon and embossed lines.

Award & First card for 2009

Hi fellow bloggers sorry not been on for a while again. Got a lovely email from my friend Nicola in Spain and she has sent be this lovely award which has cheered me up a lot. I have finally started to make some cards after 4 months of doing nothing so I will be posting them over the next few days so here is the first one.

Used some new nestabilites [well actually had them quite a while but never got round to using them], new stamp I had for ages too, then blended in colours with Sakura pens which gives the flowers a slight shimmery look. Added another new text stamp, and little butterflies & ribbon that I had.

Haste ye back........
