Frangipani Thank You


Hi fellow crafters,

It is now just over 2 weeks since I last blogged, so my frustration is growing at not
being able to spend lots of time crafting and happily drooling over your lovely creations.

My poor dear John is still bleeding, and is just getting over another Golden Staph.
infection. We have had an endless round of appointments, and the urologist has 
decided that John has to go back into hospital for more surgery, in an effort to repair 
all the internal damage that was done to him in August 2015. We believe that the
legal case will be finalised towards the end of the year.

The card I have to show you is the one I made to thank the 2 lovely, kind lady
Paramedics who took me to hospital just before Christmas. 

I adore frangipanis, and had several trees in my gardens back on our farm. I planted
one right near our back door about 25 years ago, and during summer the perfume of 
its hundreds of blossoms would waft throughout our house. Before we moved, I took
6 cuttings from it, and they are all happily growing and blooming in large
garden pots in our courtyard, and on our front porch.

This stamp was one of the first I ever purchased, and the image is 
ever so easy to colour. I used my trusty Promarkers.

The inside of my card is very simple, with plenty of space on which
I wrote my message of gratitude to my 'Angels of Mercy'. My
embellishment frangipani is from 1 of my potted cuttings.

Here in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, and in many other regions of eastern Australia, we are experiencing unprecedented high temperatures (mid to high 40s), with nighttime temps only dropping to 26 to 32oC. This summer we have broken a large number of records, and this weekend our bushfire danger indices have been graded 'Catastrophic Plus'. However, many of you are having record cold temps, so where ever you are, please stay cool or warm what ever your case may be.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Hugs,
