Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts.

I thought for a while there I was completely losing it.  Life has been a bit hard lately and last week completely overwhelmed me.  Its so hard seeing your children suffering from health and personal issues even if they are 23 years old.  Once a mum always a mum and we just want to put a plaster on and kiss it better.

We have had so many family and business issues to deal with what doesnt kill us can only make us stronger .................. right!!!!!

I have to say a huge thankyou to all the love and support I have received from my friends near and far especially on Craftelly Forum, this is a place where most TV crafters fear to tread yet I have found this bunch of nutty crafters to be a truly caring, sharing, gifted bunch.  They have rallied round and supported me through one of my most trying weeks ever in the history of 'trying weeks'.

So a great big thankyou everyone for restoring this crafters faith in craft kindness.

Sorry for the complete lack of blogging at the moment but life has thrown a few curve balls my way and I'm having to take some time out to deal with them.

Normal service shall resume shortly.

This card was inspired by my most favourite month of all ..... Autumn.

I started with a paper pricking template (hard work on the fingers but very effected) I then built up the layers of many leaves and flowers all from the Autumn Leaves CD, the backing paper and text box are also from the cd.  I gave a very subtle hint of sparkle with 2 small dragonfly brads.  I'm thrilled at how this turned out and I'm going to put it aside for my stepmums birthday in September and enter it as this weeks card for the CD Sunday Challenge.

Happy Crafting
