You're Wonderful!

Good Evening Everyone, hoping you are all well and have had a good day.  I read that some of you have had the snow again,  it can't keep up surely, can it?  We had quite a fall on Monday than on Tuesday it disappeared when the rain arrived, then overnight we had some more, but it's going.

I have a little news about our young friend who was so horribly burned last year. Alistair went to visit his dad the other day and learnt that Laurie has had  quite a few skin grafts, and they have taken really well, but his skin is as you would expect really tight.  The surgeons tell him that it will take about four years to complete the proceedures.  He is getting out and about and trying to get on with his life, but he is awfully scared around his torso and upper legs.  Thankfully his handsom face is untouched.   it would also seem that there will lots of types of work he will not be able to do,  so his future with regards to employment may well be limited.  No one is saying anything about any pychological trauma at this time, I guess only time will tell on that one.  Laurie, remains positve, a very brave lad.

My card today uses the othe LOTV stamp I received as my prize;
This stamp is one from LOTV new launch.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, stamped on to an Xcut large die shape.  Papers from Dovecraft Back to Basics11. Co-ordination card.  LOTV sentiment, Memory Box Madera corner dies and butterfly die.  WO purple rose and ribbon and gems fro The Ribbon Girl.  Glossy Acsents on balloon and Star Dust to finish.

I would like to enter this card into http://liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/a-touch-of-romance.html

No one in mind for this card, just one for my box.

That's me for today, off for a cuppa now.

Have a relaxing night,  Kate x

Kate, great to hear Laurie is doing ok. Yes it will take time for the skin to heal, the mental scars will take longer if not never, but it's good he is positive.

Yet again you have made a great card. Hazel

Good Morning Kate,
Best wishes to Laurie, brave lad. At least as you say his "good looks" have not been affected that certainly is a blessing.

Your card is so sweet, I love the image and of course the colours and colouring are beautiful.

Our snow went quickly, just be careful in case it freezes.
Hope you had a Great Day
