A Couple of Get Well messages and a Birthday Wish

Before we head off to Aberdeen this morning to visit my in-laws I thought I would share with you a few cards that I have made over the past week and also a gorgeous card that my grandaughter Sophie has made for her great grandma.

As I have mentioned earlier, my mother-in-law is in hospital at the moment after falling and breaking her hip and collar bone. The following card is one that I took in to her during the week to try to cheer up her drab and dreary surroundings in the ward. She is still in a trauma ward, so not a very nice place to be, lots of people coming and going and not much private space!.

On this card I have used one of the super cute mice from Digistamp Boutique and some papermania papers.

This next card is one that Sophie made for her great grandma using a Pixie Dust Studios image and some papers and bits and pieces that she got from hobbycraft. Sophie just loves making these cards and has now progressed from just making them when she comes to visit me - she has her own little craft stash at home and her very own collection of promarkers that swhe keeps well hidden away from her twin brothers!!

This last card is one that I made earlier in the week to send to my sister Linsey who is celebrating her Birthday today - Happy Birthday little sis.

I have used the same papers and layout that I used on a Nutshells card earlier in the week (just made the two mats at the same time) as I just adore these papers from MME. The image is a digi from CC Designs.

Well that is all frome me today, now off to enjoy some of this lovely warm weather while it lasts - saw the forecast for her next week and looks like we will fall from 24 degrees this week to nearer 9 degrees next Monday and Tuesday - oh joy!!

Have a lovely day and if you get some time tomorrow, pop back to see what we have going on at the Nutcrafters Blog Hop.
