The card above is for one of my friends to give to her mum for Mother's Day. I have used a Kanban decoupage, from Grimsby Crafts. I have used the backing paper from a pad from the Do Crafts range, all finished off with flower, charm & ribbon.

The second card is also from the Kanban range and one I have had for ages I just found them when I was doing some long awaited cleaning/tidying in my craft room. So I am now using them up now. I seem to have been using lots of things from my stock but it never seems to go down.

As I said in the title last week was a very mixed up week for me. Saturday evening I was taken to hospital with severe pain and several other things going on. As a result of this was sent to see my neurologist in Hull on Thursday for an emergency appointment. On the positive side I hadn't had a small stroke as at first thought but that my MS is getting more severe and not going to get any better than it is at the moment. It is something I will just have to learn to cope with in my own way.

I realised I had some very good and caring friends. Julie was a star on Saturday night at the hospital with me, Jane for coming with me for the appointment in Hull, you made a difficult day so much easier. Stuart for all your support and caring and for being there with the hugs when I have needed you most over the last 8 months, you are best Stuart. To everyone else who has shown support and caring thank you too. Everything over the past few weeks has made me stop and and take stock of my life and realise what is important in life. Live for the moment, let the bad things go and embrace all the good things in your life. I sure am going to.

To finish on a lighter the card that I posted earlier for Alexis she absolutely loved it, her Nanna said she jumped up and down so excited to get a card from England that she feel over.

Thank you for reading
