Lots of Love

Hello Everyone,

Well, I suppose this is a funny thing to say, but we had a lovely time at the funeral of my Uncle.
Met a cousin from overseas who has only just come home...sold his business and only been here for 3 days, so he was branded as bad luck...another cousin, she and her husband arrived from up North, came and gave me a big hug and asked me who she was..................I guessed straight away, she has not changed one bit.
And as usual the promises were made...lets keep in touch, lets not wait for funerals...bla bla bla...but all said with the best intentions...

My Lady has been very good lately...nothing has happened that has not happened in the past...but she did graze her elbow...somehow...and was sure it was because of her blood...but after a lengthy discussion and gentle probing to see if it hurt...she beleived me that it was a graze...I applied ointment and a band aid...but no fairy kiss...thats going too far...and we continued our day.

Still going to my 'Young Man'...today in fact, but the hours have dropped to 2 a week, as the place is sort of tip top..and he is trying to keep it like that, even attempts to make his bed in the morning.
He likes to show visitors how shiney his kettle is....small things eh!!

Have a card to share with you...another sunshine card...promises of things to come maybe...



Coloured with my pencils...papers from Kaisercraft 'Nan's favourites - marmalade'...had this sheet for ages and never had the right image to use it...



Had this gorgeous Mo Manning image too, the first I ever bought, but the season changed and never used it either....
Spellbinders heart, then embossed with swiss dots folder, lace doily and a tiny strawberry button, which I finally managed to tie a bow with some string....must have lost a thumb and grown a finger at long last...



Close up of image....I actually bought some glossy accents...the real stuff, and glossed up her strawberries.

Going to enter this card in a challenge at Cinspirations   [lots of love]

That was a long winded post....thanks for stopping by, I'm off to work shortly, picking up the boys after school, cooking dinner for them, then I can come home and play before bed,and swing by and see what you all have been up to...raining today,thank goodness I did gardens on Saturday..

Luv CHRISSYxx
