Unfortunately I think we are going to see a lot of this for the next few days. What a beautiful day here yesterday, lots of sunshine. I used an Inkylicious sentiment and image, scraps of First Edition Blank Canvas papers along with a precut card blank. The ides are Memory Box clouds and Doohickey fence.

Looking forward to my Mum coming over today. If you have read my Facebook posts you will know that her husband died recently. It was a great relief as she had cared for him for 6 years, with him becoming progressively worse. She has a new lease of life and we have lots to sort out. They lived in a three bedroom council house and she has now been offered a small bungalow and want new carpets, curtains, furniture etc, She hasn't been able to visit us for years as he couldn't get in a car or on the bus so she is looking forward to it. We are going out for breakfast and visiting a furniture shop first to get some ideas for he new home.
