Me time......

Well what a fabulous surprise my husband sprung on me !! We are off to Italy for a week - fly into Venice for a couple of days, then on to Florence and finally Rome where we fly home from.....and then to Kent to see my MIL and FIL.... who incidentally has had a really positive week.....even managed a walk around the country park on Sunday - she hasn't walked for 4 months :) We all know what is around the corner but are trying to give her as many good times as we can - and selfishly to help us as much as her......

Here is a card I was asked to make - the lady loves to read so I chose this Nikki stamp and she absolutely loved it.

Coloured in using Promarkers
