Magical Birthday Wishes

Hello fellow Blog friends,

I strongly suspect that you have all deserted me, due to the large absence of blogs from my good self.

All I can say is that I will never EVER move house again!!  This has been the most stressful, emotional and tiring event to happen in our lives for the past 15 years.  For the past 12 months or so I have got along on a wish and a prayer, with one disaster after another, way to many to bore you all with.

One very sad event was having to make the heartbreaking decision to let Holly go over the Rainbow Bridge, she had no quality of life any more and it was so sad.  She did make it to 14 and a half which I never thought she would ~ Fly high Holly 😢

I finally feel like we have come out of a very dark tunnel, but it has left us drained and broke 😔

My card making, unfotunately, became a chore.  Every event that loomed on the calendar filled me with a sense of dread, 'another card to make'.

But, as I said I feel we have turned a corner at last and I am now looking forward to enjoying my cards again.

So, this is a card I made for my Stepmother, she loves fairies and her garden resembles a fairy grotto.

That's it for now.  I will try and be back much sooner next time 'promise'.

Thank you for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave.

Card recipe:

Corner Stamp: From a 'freebie' set by Sheena Douglas ~ 'A Little Bit Scenic Silhouette Stamp Set'
Sentiment: CC Designs ~ 'Magical Birthday Wishes'
Flowers and gems from my stash
