A Pirate's Birthday!........


It has been some time since I updated my blog. It feels strange to be back here now and so good too!
The reason for my absence is my Mother in Law died in February. I always thought she would go on forever and so it has been hard for us all to deal with. When someone so close to you and part of the fabric of your life goes it makes it so hard to function. Life is not the life you have always had so you have to take one day at a time to start to live your life again.
I am now coming through the other end and starting to feel my way again. I know we will have good days and bad days but I keep close to myself that we were so lucky to have had such a good, strong and kind person in our lives who will be in our hearts forever.
A big thank you to everyone who enquired about my absence you are so very kind.
Anyway, I am so pleased to be back here with you all again and would like to share a card I made for my Grandson Luca's bestest friend in the world.

I have coloured Magnolia's Edwin with distress ink pads and then pin pricked the edge.
The Cloud Tag, Fence and Flag's are Magnolia's DooHickey dies with  an Anchor Charm from The Ribbon Girls.

The paper is Magnolia.

I attached the flags with wire and the letters are Quickutz.

Thank you so much for your visit with me and I wish you all a fabulous weekend!

So happy to have you back with us, Kim, but equally really sorry to hear of the loss of your mum in law. It takes time to come to terms with such a loss and I'm sure that all of your friends and fans in blogland will be sending you their love and hugs, as I do. Tracey xx
