A Big Thank You

Thank you so much for all your  lovely messages 
on my last post. You are all so kind.

My sister was due to go home last Monday.
Unfortunately she had a 2nd fall and they
said she would go home on Wednesday last week.
Sadly they were unable to get a Care Package
ready and then it was each day on! and on!
They have promised it will be tomorrow, Tuesday.

My gorgeous Daughter-in-Law, is a long way 
from home at the moment too!!

She is working at the Olympics in Japan,
as her role is a Sports Psychologist with
the Ladies Hockey Team. They won 
their first game this morning 4 - 1!!

My son sent me a picture of her,  he took 
off his TV this morning. Thanks BBC!!

This card is just for stock.  I have to replace 
my cards, for another Nursing Home where 
I take cards, for staff and residents.

The old map is one I had, which I used for 
a holiday in Europe, many years ago. 
I will post a bit more on that soon.

The stamps are an old set from LOTV.
I thought it was about time I used them again! 
Coloured with Copics and edged the map
with DI  Vintage Photo.

I know a lot of you have had problems with 
Storms and too much rain. 
I wish we had just a little bit, as I can't
remember when we last saw any rain!!
I am going to have to get the hose out tomorrow.
The plants are looking very sad. 
The soil is like concrete!!

The rain clouds just go over us and forget
to drop some here. The sun is really hot
through the window in my Craft Room ,
and I have the blind down at the moment!

I will now stop moaning!! 
Thanks for popping in and like on my last post, 
your kindness is wonderful.
Big hugs,

I love using this set and it looks great with the old map. We should have had rain yesterday but none again. Our garden is looking lovely just beacuse we keep watering it.

A super card Carol, fabulous vintage images and a great idea to use the map for a background.
I hope your Sister manages to get home soon, it can be a nightmare, we had the same problem with my Dad many years ago.

It is so frustrating when they keep adding another day on to release from hospital, been there when Roy was in hospital. Your card is great, ideal for a man. We missed all the heavy rain as well although we did have a little bit! And I have a very warm craft room too, even with a blind and fan, so not much crafting been done. Much cooler today so I really must get some cards made! xx

I hope by now that your Sister is back at home with some support in place. How wonderful for your Daughter-in-law to be involved in such a huge event, you mjust be incredibly proud. Do you know I have this stamp set hidden away somewhere, those stamps look fabulous on the map page, what a genius idea!! We had a downpour on Friday night with a few claps of thunder but it made very little difference to the ground, still baked hard!! xx

A fabulous vintage style card Carol. I hope your sister will get home soon and with the correct Care Package too. It must be a wonderful experience for your daughter in law too in Japan - I must admit I haven't watched any of the Olympics yet. Have a good week x
