Roses and butterflies

Morning all and thank you for popping in today.

Thank you for your kind words yesterday about Mum, waiting this morning to 
see if she will be discharged from hospital. 

Needless to say I was awake in the early hours .... but fortunately went back to sleep.

Here is a wee card I was working on yesterday. 

I used up the Hunkydory "insert" paper I used the other day for the dress in Pink out of Africa.

Used worn lipstick around the edge of the card blank and paper. 

Mounted the paper onto the card blank and then used Nuvo drops all over the picture. 

Added pink gems and a pink ribbon  (which was white)  and pinkish butterfly to the card. 

I quite like the texture now on the card. 

I hope you do 


Thank you for coming over to see me. 

The latest - just now - about Mum is that she needs an MRI scan, she does not want it, 
saying she feels fine, but WE have persuaded her to have it - just to check everything. 

Hopefully it will be done and dusted today and she will be home 

There is nothing like your own bed - is there? 

Well think I will now pop out for a walk as yesterday did not get one 
in as waiting by the phone. 

Have a great day and just to show you the veg picked this morning by Den and the last of 
the black currants by me yesterday.
