A Lavender Bag Hello!

Good Morning Everyone, and I hope all is well with you the Monday morning.  After the most beautiful day yesterday, we are a bit dull and it looks like it might rain and, certainly colder. It might have to be drying clothes inside today.

Was Mother's Day a good one for you, I do hope so, but I know it can also be a sad day for those who have lost their mums, I always feel a grab of my heart at this time, where I see so many gifts that she would have liked and I find myself looking and reading the shop bought cards, I didn't make cards when she was here, what a pity as I think she would have loved my cards.
Damian organised my flowers and card before he left for Boston, which really touched me as he had so many things to see to making sure that Moreen had everything she needed, and that their animals had everything they needed.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on yesterday's card, the snow folk are so cute I will be using them lots I think.

I have a little card today made to say hello to a friend that I've been out of touch with;
Image is from Just Inklined, coloured with a mixture of SN and Copics, Xcut die shape, Sizzix Hello die, First Edition paper and purple card. Gems and a little lace butterfly from my box. Wink of Stella on the scoop.
Just a simple little card to say hello and hope all is well.

Alistair is way up a mountain again, I hope his weather is good.  He loves his cowl and said his pal Bill would love one, I said no problem I'd knit him one, oh no says Bill, Sheena, his partner is a knitter and he has refused to wear anything she has knitted for him. Now knowing this lady and I'm sure her knitting skills will be ace, so it will be Bill's loss. I had to chuckle at this.

Anyway, I'm off to pop in to see if Moreen is OK and anything needed done around the home, then a wee practise of my music in preparation for tonight's rehearsal, and if I'm lucky a wee bit of crafting.
Bye for now,

Really pretty. Lavender reminds me of my grandmother. She loved her Yardley English Lavender talcum powder. That smell just transports me back to the good old days. Seems so long ago now... Hope you had a grand day yesterday.

Oh Kate, love your pretty card. I can smell that lavender now. My best friend grows it in her garden, and I bring some home and hand it with a ribbon upside down in my sun porch...ah it smells so good for a long time.
Have a good day.

Hi Kate. what a cute lavender bag, not seen that image before and love the added ribbon and sentiment.

You made me smile about hubby's friend refusing to wear hand knitted items, does he not know that homemade it the big trend? All the love that goes into making!
He'll just have to have a cold neck then!

Enjoy your day and I hope you find time for a little crafting,

hugs Erika. x
