Good morning. What a week it has been - I won't bore you all with the details but I've been absent from blogland since last Saturday following an horrendous train journey up to Leeds on Friday to see my Dad (who is doing ok since his heart attack a couple of weeks ago) - when my back went into another massive spasm and I ended up not getting to see Dad and having to spend all this week laid up in bed :o(
Luckily things are improving and yesterday I even managed to get down the stairs and make a cup of tea :o)
Even luckier - I had already made my DT card for this week's challenge at
as I'm the host the week!
and the theme is:
HAVE A HEART
Our sponsor this week is
The DT had some images to play with.
I chose 'Forever Yours' as I thought the image was really saying "I Love You This Much" and would be perfect for a Valentine card for my scrummy yummy Grandson Oliver :o)
I recently dug out my very old Frister and Rossmann sewing machine - I think it must be about 25 - 30 years old lol!!!! and had a go at some stitching - as you can see I think I need lots more practice!!!

Design Papers - Pink Petticoat - Big Fella
