Special card

I can't thank everyone enough for their very special comments & emails of support I received this week when I blogged the memory box I made for my family to use in memory of my mum. It has been touching & heart warming knowing I have lots of caring supportive blogging friends around me who understand. Thank You.xx

With this in mind I have decided to share with you on my blog a grave card I have made for this weekend. I wanted to make something that will withstand the outside elements & decided I needed to make something which could be laminated.

I have used a piece of patterned paper with a floral border and because we are still without a printer at the moment I have written my message by hand. I left space at the bottom so the children could add their own words & then fed it to the laminator!...

I've added a single rose afterwards & coated it in glossy accents & think it'll be alright for a while outside.

This is a photograph I've also laminated. Our last photograph together while my mum was well. (I was 5 1/2 months pregnant with Tom!)

Thank you for looking. Gez.xx

  11. Hi Gez...I really feel for you , I can't imagine my life without my Mom ,even though I know I could and should do a lot more with her. Especially as we have had first experience with MIL passing away recently, I still can't believe she's gone....and it really upset's me to think about it...

    Your Mom would be so very proud of you, and all I imagine she want's you to do is live your life to the full,and take precious care of all your nearest and dearest.
    You hang in there...your such a wonderful person...
