Hello Crafting Friends, Monday and the beginning of another week. I hope you all had a good weekend and had some good weather. Ours wasn't great, heavy showers at times and not all that warm.
On Saturday we closed our doors to our clients after a farewell party. There were some tears and not just from the clients, even I had a lump in my throat, but we all put up a brave front. Our CEO, Area Manager and Service Manager were also there and we are, both staff and clients wondering why. It felt awkward especially as the clients felt they didn't fight hard enough to keep us open and they are quite correct as the organisation didn't want to antagonise NHS Highland in case they withdrew their funding from the other Highland projects, we were the sacrificial lambs. So, the end of an era, 24 years of something that worked well for Mental Health clients, but.........does anyone really care!
My colleagues and I don't finish up until the end of June, but there is much to do in clearing out the building.
Thank you all so much for your comments on my CCC card, and I'm pleased that it evoked memories for some of you.
Here is my card for today;
Using an image from Chocolate Baroque's Honeysuckle Butterfly stamp set and Mackintosh Sentiments set, I've coloured it up with SN Aqua pens. Embossalicious butterfly folder, SB Frame, give to me by a lovely Blogging Friend so I don't know which one it is, a piece of beaded lace from my box. The sentiment is embossed with WOW EP, Liquid pearls and glitter to finish.
The card has been made for the colour challenge at CB;
Fabulous colours to create with.
I would like to enter my card into: http://chocolatebaroquechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/challenge-eleven.html
That's me for another day, off now to make a cuppa and get the knitting out.
Keep well everyone, and hug to those who are not so well and hoping you feel better soon.
See you soon,
