Thank you for your lovely comments on my posts and your best wishes. I enjoy reading what you say.
Tracy, I hope you're able to be back to 100% crafting soon. I'd find it very frustrating, especially if I couldn't do my knitting
Jenny, it has been worrying and I've been quite tearful too. I'll probably burst into tears when I eventually get to see her as well
Yay! daughter text me this morning to say that they are on their way home (fingers crossed!) In fact they should be boarding a plane as I publish this post. They're flying back to East Midlands and then having to get a coach back to Stanstead. But, you know what, it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, she's on her way home. It has been a truly sad, horrific, incident for those innocent Russian people. It does make you stop and think.
Anyway, today's card has been made for a work colleague's birthday. Making cards for work colleagues is one of the many reasons why I started card making. I was the one with the responsibility of buying the cards (there's 17 of us) and nobody thought to help with the cost. So it is for a gentleman who hasn't ever given any hints as to what hobbies he likes and for religious reasons does not drink. Last year I made a card using Serif digikit - Zodiac and made a "Saggitarius" card. SO! this year I was struggling to do something, especially as I started doing a zodiac card and when it was finished, it only struck me then that I'd done something similar to last year. A quick re-think and remembered I had a MCS cd-rom called Nursery Rhyme. I googled his date of birth, to find that he was born on a Wednesday. I needed to make the topper in similar colours to the existing card in order to place it on top I took it into Serif and changed the colours, added shadows etc
