I did do some stamping over the weekend and made some cards, but nothing really seemed to be working. I thought I would do some experimenting and try some different things to what I usually make, but nothing seemed to turn out quite right. Maybe it is because I am a little weary. We had a thunderstorm on Saturday night and Jamie was really scared. I think it is the first time he has been really aware of the thunder and he just wanted me to hold him while we sat on his bed… for two hours in the middle of the night. I then had to work all day on Sunday so I came home with aching feet and feeling very worn out.
So, now that I have had my complain for the day…
I have made a birthday card today for a special lady by the name of Mary. Mary is my Mum’s carer. Mum had a fall about 12 months ago and broke her hip. Mary goes to Mum’s place every morning to help her with her shower. I actually think that Mum is quite capable of having a shower on her own now but just enjoys Mary’s company!! 🙂 So this is the card I made for Mary to go with a bottle of bubbly! Hope you enjoy it Mary 🙂
