Hello to all the lovely crafters out there in blogland.
Recently our wonderful GP celebrated her birthday, so as I have done
for the past couple of years (since John became so ill), I made
her a card. She has such a bright and friendly personality,
so I wanted my card to reflect those traits.
I bought the gorgeous 'Happy Birthday' die just before John became ill,
so I haven't had the opportunity to use it until now. However, I'm sure
it will get a lot of use from now on...I love it.
A closer look at my flower arrangement. I handmade the large pink
flower using punches, and the 3 tiny yellow buds from tissue paper.

A friend remarked a few months ago that with all the bad luck we have had in recent years, we must have driven a tractor through a mirror factory, with not one mirror surviving. John had his 5th surgery last week, but is experiencing complications. The day after he came out of hospital he almost stepped on a Red-bellied Black Snake on our front porch, then the next day, while stationary, we were 'rear-ended' at speed by a driver who admitted that he was not concentrating, but reading a large billboard advertisement. Our car has been severely damaged, and may have to be written-off.
Surely our luck has to change soon, so on that optimistic note, I will say "thank you for visiting", and until next time,
