Tower Bridge

 Here I am at last with a card to share. I have to say I struggled with this and several attempts saw the bin.

I really can't take credit for the design as it is a CASE of one Jenny Mayes (HobbyArt) did on the telly that prompted me to buy the stamp. She made it look so easy!

It was to post to Australia for my sons birthday and fortunately it only took 3 weeks to arrive...the day before his birthday. So much better than Chloes' card that took 3 months to get there!

So now I can share with you......this lovely stamp reminded me so much of a wonderful day we spent in London with them before they emigrated. We visited Tower Bridge...did the tourist bit of it...yes glass floor as well!...eek! and when we came out we were greeted with the bridge opening...bonus!

A pretty poor attempt at a bit of watercoloring but the best of a bad lot!

Thank you so much for all the kind comments you have left me on my last post. It cheers me to think of the wonderful friends that I have in blogland....such a lovely lot you are.

I do hope you are managing to stay well and safe as this wretched year hurtles past us. Lets hope 2021 heralds the hope of better things to come.

Till next time...take care everyone.

Love Carole xx

'Get well' with a difference!

 Hello blogging friends! I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.

No new crafting here yet...but....

I'm back with a card that I made before lockdown...but never blogged because it was for a friend having a joint replacement operation, which of course was cancelled because of Covid. However she has just had the said operation and so now she has at last received her card and I can share it with you.

Knitting is her is her card......

The die is Crafters Companion...the rest, I am sorry I can't remember but I am sure the card is pretty much self explanatory and the sentiment is computer generated.

It may be a while before you see me again, some of you will know the reason for my long absence from blogland, but for those of you who don't and are wondering then please read on......

Sadly at the end of June my dear hubby, best friend and soulmate passed away, just 3 weeks after being given a terminal cancer diagnosis. We had no idea he was ill before then so it was a big shock and now I have to rebuild my life without him in it. He retired just  a year ago and we had plans to do so much together although Covid had already put a stop to that this year anyway.

 I am sure you can understand why my crafting mojo has gone awol...I hope it will return soon, but till it does I am blessed to have wonderful blogging friends to help and inspire me. 

Till next time, please take care, keep safe and well in this turbulent time .

Thank you and big hugs to you all.
