Happy Birthday to you!

Hello everyone!!

We had an amazing time at Lake Como - the weather was mixed but managed to get a lovely tan  ~ think it was because it was 23-25 degrees most days so was a nice heat to wander in and also to fall asleep in!!

My card today was made with a couple of new stamps that I bought recently from
 Uniko Studios and Mama Elephant.

I'd like to join in with

Thank you for stopping by

Happy Friday everyone!

Tomorrow we leave for just over a week in Lake Como - I am so looking forward to a rest after the stress of the past few months......just hope George Clooney doesn't whisk me off my feet and expect me to run away with him ~ LOL!!

My Dad hasn't had a great week but think he is getting depressed again - can't begin to imagine what is going through his mind. Hopefully we will get the results of yesterdays MRI late next week.

Anyway on to todays creation - although looks quite simple it took me an age to get all the fonts and sizing right and I even managed to make the wax seal out of some red Fimo. My customer was over the moon and gave me £10 tip for my extra efforts......I so wish he ordered more often!!

Trust you all have a lovely weekend......

Take Care

Thank you!

Hi everyone ~ life has taken me on a roller coaster this past couple of weeks and although I have had orders to create I haven't really relaxed to enjoy crafting ~ if you know what I mean.

My Dad isn't very well and when he went to have the tumours removed from his right lung, a couple of weeks ago they were unable to operate as they found, on a scan, that the liver cancer had returned so at the moment he is waiting for a MRI to find out what and where he is up to. A really horrible time for him.

We had booked a holiday to Italy which would've been just over two weeks after his operation and he wants us still to go - but it's going to be a difficult one. I've satisfied my mind that it's only 4 hour maximum to return home if I need to.

Anyway ~ onto one of my orders.....
a lady needed a card for her employee that she had 'nanny'd' for for eight years but is leaving as the children are getting too old. She wanted a shabby chic 'Thank you' keepsake card - I hope it was gratefully received.

I just had to share this photo of Cocoa and Celeste - they are always together but this was just hilarious!

Hope you are all having a lovely summer.

Thank you for dropping by
