1st Communion

Hello all, thankyou once again for all the lovely comments you leave me its lovely to read through them all and many make me smile or chuckle! People who are asking about Gwen...she is doing great...a friend yesterday said to me she is like a hamster she is that tiny still, but I've got a feeling she is starting to grow a little, she is soooo cheeky liking the computer of course and often likes to sit on the back of my neck which is lovely but bleeding annoying lol. I shall add a piccie of her in a min looking very cute in another of her fav positions!
But onto my card now and its for my Nephew who has his 1st communion this Sunday, this also fits in well to the challenge at cute card thursday
where the theme was no designer papers, so this worked fantastically for that.

Tis Monday!!

hello all, having a thinking day is the day 2 years ago that I moved to Scotland, so much has happened in the last 2 years but I know deep down that I'm happy here and so is Adam I could never contemplate moving back down to Essex again I'm definatley a country bumpkin lol!!! But deep down thinking if it wasn't for the sadness of my baby George dying I would never of known my good friend Jo (who also lost a baby 10 days after me) and I would never be here now in Scotland and also for mum now who is moving up next month all so bittersweet life is a funny thing you never know what is around the corner and sometimes good can come out of the bad! right before I start getting the keyboard wet here is my card:
