Hello Fellow Bloggers and Crafters, I hope tonight finds you tip top, but if not I hope you will feel better soon.
Thank you all so much for the super comments on my Oldie and for all the lovely Birthday Wishes. I had a lovely day, our Turkish lunch was wonderful, no one can cook lambs liver like the Turks
A friend contacted me through Face book to say that one of the ladies I lived with whilst I lived in the L'Arche Community was very poorly. I came to Inverness in 1990 to join this community to live with people with learning disabilities and Jackie was one of the core members along with another three folk. Jackie has Downs Syndrome and is ages with me. I was her main carer and have always loved her. The stories I have could fill a book. Anyway thanks to pneumonia which has affected her chest she is very weak and the Community have brought her home and it's just a matter of time, in fact I sat with her today and there has been quite a change since I saw her on Friday. Although she has had a loved and happy life in the community, she has always been in care and has now no family, it's so sad. I'm just so glad I can share some more time with her.
So my card today is for another friend for her 60th;
She is a dressy up party girl, so I used Chloe Shoe and Bag stamp, cut them out and glittered them up with Wow glitter. now doing this wasn't that easy and what a mess, but the effect is quite good.
Embossalicious Patchwork folder, SB Aster flower die, distressed ink then sprayed with CC diamond glitter, Wink of Stella on the bag handle, Blue Liquid Pearls. Number and sentiment from Hobby Crafts, oh and a bit of ribbon. Blue is her favourite colour, hence my colour theme.
Had my days off and now back to work tomorrow, strange going into the building whilst it's being cleared, but hey ho.
That's me for tonight, feet up and a cuppa, take care everyone and see you soon,
Book-card with flowers
