Words of Encouragment!

Good Evening to Everyone,  I hope you've all had a lovely Sunday and  for Mums and Grand mums a great Mothering Sunday.   Damian called in with a beautiful Hydrangea plant and some lovely smellies.  Hope I don't kill off the plant, I don't have the greenest of fingers. Anyway it was lovely to see him and catch up with is news.

We have been really cold here today, quite dull but you could see the sun trying to peek through the clouds, but it never made it.  Spring is most definitely here though, lots of gorgeous Spring flowers out now, I love all the bright  colours don't you!
 Not much news so I'll get on and show you my card :
I've made this one for my Stepson, who is going through some tough times and needs a bit of reassurance'
Bazzil Gunmetal coloured card, it's sort of shimmery, don't know what's called
Papermaina Paper pack
Inkylicious Stamp
Card Candy
Dovecraft Buttons

A very simple card really, I hope the words will help him.

Thank you all who left great comments on my last card, Jim phoned on his birthday to say how much he liked it, so I'm well pleased.

That's all from me tonight, and happy crafting one and all, bye for now,
