Thank You....XXX

to everyone.xx I have received lots of lovely messages, comments & emails this week. It has been a very worrying time for me as my father has had to undergo a major operation to save his life. I believe in the power of prayer & it has been so kind of everyone to leave me touching comments on my blog. I don't have any brothers or sisters & life can feel quite lonely at times but I have made some wonderful friends here in Blogland.

I am sorry I haven't been able to blog hop lately & leave comments. The days & nights have all just disappeared. Just hoping my hubby & children aren't feeling too neglected. It's been a worrying time for us all. I saw my dad this afternoon & he has come through his operation on Saturday very well indeed. I know it is early days & he has a very long way to go to get his life back to a new kind of normal again but he has made a remarkable start so far & I am very proud of him. :-D

I've had little time to blog hop & even less time to craft. I did however receive some lovely images as a RAK from a very talented crafter & just 'had' to have a play with my Copic pens. :-D

I am proud to be able to say I have made this card using Lyn's fabulous sketch that she has drawn for Quirky Crafts forum for our new challenge this week. Here is.....

...... Lyn's sketch.

...my card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little blog. I really hope to catch up with everyone's fabby creations soon. Wishing everyone a lovely week & Thank You for everyone's kind words of support. They have all meant so me too me. Love Gez.xx
