For someone special....


I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I would like to share with you a card I made using one of Magnolia's You are So Special Collection.

I have used distress ink pads for colouring. I 3d the balloon to sit outside the circle. I have distressed everything with walnut stain. The stickles are star dust and platinum. I heat embossed the sentiment and heart with clear embossing powder.

I just wanted to share with you how well my grandchildren Luca and Isabella are doing now. Luca's eyes are a lot better and with his continued treatment and care by those amazing consultants they are keeping well. Isabella is a different baby now she has had her tonsils and adenoids removed. So my daughter Claire can now take a deep breath at last!

To help restore Luca's confidence he is doing some modelling and here he is on the set for Sainsburys with his little sister Isabella. It is so good to see them both well.

Here he is in one of Sainsbury's clothing advertisements.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and caring and kind words to me when I was so worried about them. Then helped me so much.

Thank you so much for your visit, have a wonderful week and take care!
