Hello my blog friends - I have a card which I made over Christmas for a lovely friend who, so sadly, lost her husband just days before Christmas day.  I wanted to leave it a little while before I put this on my blog.  I have emptied my wardrobe and am having a cuppa and a sit down so here I am!!

This really is a very simple card using just dies, flowers and a small sentiment.  I love the pale blue and white together especially with the flowers.  The poem inside is one of my favourites because the words mean so much.

I hope you like it

Thank you so much for popping by and for your various emails and comments on my last post - my wardrobe is going to look marvellous when it is finished.  

Hubby has now decided that I can have the whole wardrobe altered, initially I was going to have to leave a space at the bottom for our suitcases - now they are going elsewhere and I can have the lot for my crafty stash - yay!!!!!  I must leave the space in front of the cupboard free so that I can open the doors - I didn't mention that I have to move a pile of 12 x 12 paper pads, crates of A4 papers plus stackable storage boxes full of pens, glitter, sequins, beads etc etc to get into the other cupboard did I????   Oooh have I mentioned my bad back???

Well I can promise you that even if I fill this new cupboard there will still be stuff all over the floor!!!!!  I sent a pic of my room to Sue (Ollie's Mum) and I think she is in a state of shock because she has been a tad quiet since!!!! LOL.

Bye for now - the cupboard is being started next week 'cos hubby is at work this week - bless!!!

Crafty hugs to you all and a special thank you to Suzie who helped me once again 'cos I couldn't get my pics on the blog.  She suggested using Google Chrome and I am up and waffling again!!!
