Hello my crafty friends and I'm back

Hello my crafty friends and I'm back … wow had a bit of a hectic going on but now am back !! ha ha

Mother in law had a fall on September 4th (was my dear Mum's birthday rip) and wow what a par larva don't know if that's how you spell it but that is the least of my worries.

This is us when Shaun my son (who is getting married at the end of the month) took us out for tea on her birthday she is 95.

ps don't you just love the sign next to my sons head … he is 6'4 so quite
 used to bumping his head

anyway she was admitted to hospital and stayed for 1 week with x-rays and scans etc and was sent home with no problems.  Upon reading the discharge summary we find out she has TWO fractures of the hip. Absolutely ridiculous.  We have been trying to cope with her at her home but unfortunately it has really affected her … her memory is horrendous but before she was very "with it".  Anyway we have asked for help from her daughter who lives in London and she has taken her home with her.

PHEW !! and breathe 

Also I said above we have a wedding to get ready for and I am still working on the stationery … obviously the invites are done and posted but other stuff to sort out and my outfit etc.

but here are a few cards I have managed mainly to keep me sane lol 

A little birthday card for my lovely sister

one for my sister in law from us

one for sister in law from her Mum

a flying high card for my dear hubby

a card for my dear hubby from his Mum

thank you for stopping by and looking at my creations … I hope to be able to return the favour really soon … hope all is well with you all … and sorry for my "rant"
