A very busy week for me but I had pressing deadlines for certain cards to be made and so I had to show willing and get busy!
My desk this week shows cards in various stages…
The one on the left (standing) is a Mother's Day card minus half the greeting. See below for the finished one! Also to the left is an old diary including photographs that I found at the weekend whilst having a clean out of some drawers from 2003! My beautiful daughter Katy was still with us then and I spent an hour or two crying and laughing in equal measures as I read through forgotten treasured memories!
You will see some JOFY stamps and art work which was going to be a second Mother's day card but I wasn't happy with it so it's gone in the bin. The next birthday card is for a colleague -
I've love this stamp, I've used it so much.
The last card was made because a close family friend died at the weekend. He was 98, yes you read that right, NINETY EIGHT! He was such a lovely man who during the war was part of the first brigade of soliders to go into Bergen-Belsen and liberate the POWs. What awful, unspeakable horrors he must of seen. A real unsung hero and a much loved Father, Dampy (Grandfather) and friend.
Well….. I'm remembering all my beautiful loved ones this week and feeling a bit nostalgic….
Oh by the way…..
Happy St David's Day from here in Wales!
