Hi. It is so dark and overcast out there you would scarcely believe that it is almost June! I have just popped in with  a simple thank you card today.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

I've used up old stuff for my card. The purple pearlescent card was a piece from my bit box, as was the lilac strip. I used Fiskars Corner and Edger punch and the Bracket edge punch on them. The flowers I found in the back of a drawer, the 3D Merci embellishment I have had for years and the ribbon was old stash.

Sorry for such a quick post - but it was either a quick one or not at all!

Hope everybody is well - especially all of you who have been suffering various nasty viral bugs!

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  19. Another lovely card Christine. I've just caught up with your posting about your parents, and it touched me so much, I still have my father alive, he's 89 n June but not very good in health now, hence I haven't been blogging recently or having time to make cards. Your parents shared alot of precious years together, but it also touched me as my birthday is also 12 May. Hope your cycling went well and the weather was kind. Hugs Dee x
