A Very Heavy Heart

Last weekend I sat and happily made these two cards for my Mums 90th Birthday which was on Tuesday. We took the cards and the presents into the Care Home she is now living in and had a lovely half hour (our allotted visiting time) talking to her through a window and a hearing loop. We left flowers for her and so had other people, so many in fact that when my sister visited that afternoon she laughed and told her that her room look just like a flower shop. Who would have thought that less than three days later she would be taken from us, so suddenly and with no apparent reason. She had seemed very healthy and happy when we visited with her. Even the care home are in shock at her passing. We can only hope that the Coroner can find out what the problem was. My Mum was in the care home after a fall at home in August, when the ambulance took her into hospital I could not go with her because of this awful Covid 19. All I was allowed was a quick hug and a kiss, since then she has either been in hospital or the care home and we have not been allowed to touch her. What I wouldn't give just to give her one final hug right now.


 Please all stay safe and well

Favourite Colours

Wow what a long time since I last blogged. What with Christmas and also my Mojo went for a little walk about too, but I'm glad to say that it back now. So my card for today was made for my Great Nephew who turned 21 last week. I've used an 8x8 card base and a stamp for what is at the moment my favourite stamp company Pink Ink. I started by stamping this gorgeous monkey with spiced marmalade distress ink and then smudging it with an ink blender, I then added a little more of the spiced marmalade ink around the head and face area before over stamping with ground expresso distress ink. I then went around the outside with the new rustic wilderness distress ink colour and used a leaf stamp around the edges. I just added a little dot of white pen to highlight the eyes. This week over on the Allsorts blog they are asking for cards using your favourite colour and as I used the lovely warm oranges that I always seem to reach for with card making it has to fall into the category of a favourite colour. So I'm off to join in the fun this week.


 Hope to be back with something new soon

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
