This Tuesday gone, I got a call that my sister was in
Hospital. The sister that has been a carer to our older 
sister, that has Alzheimer's and also a carer to her own
husband, who had a big stroke a few years ago!!

Now she has had a stroke!! 
Why is life so unfair?!!!

We are hoping it's not a strong one and I had
a good chat with her today. I am still finding it
difficult to get it into my head.

This card is using another old stamp and papers
 floating around in an old box!

I stamped the glass twice and the word 'Cheers' as well. 
I then fussy cut them out and painted everything with Distress Inks.

The glass I stuck in place, using 3D foam to shape it.
I then put Glossy Accents all over the glass, the word 'Cheers'
and also on the green handle. 
The 'foam' on top of the beer is Pinflair Snow-it.

Yippee!!! I have a Craft Fair in a couple of weeks, so busy
now, sorting all my stock out. 
So excited!!

Thank you for popping into my little blog and leaving me
such lovely messages. Love reading them and returning onto your blogs.
Stay safe!!
Big hugs,

Oh sweet friend, I'm here! I am SO sad to see your message and praying that your sister has improved with prayer and the hands of the medical care! I agree that life isn't fair - I've been unable to blog because of our family members have been super sick. We just pray for all of them! I love your card, my friend! xx
