Omg, I can't believe it has been 15 month since I posted on my blog. I completely lost all my mojo, and what with getting a new laptop with windows 8, Grrrrr I just gave up. I am going to tidy up my craft room this weekend and have a good sort out of all the new stash that I have brought and not even opened yet, and I might even make a card or two.
Off to do a bit of blog hopping now to see what you have all be up to.
I haven't got a card but thought I would share a picture of my gorgeous grandson Louis'
After seeing so many gorgeous cards using paper bows, i thought i would give them a try and found them really easy to make, no more trying to find the correct ribbon colour to go with your project. Here are a couple of really simple cards using this paper technique. Hope you like them. TFL xx
It's been so long since i blogged and now my blog is the new set up, I hope this card appears, oh how i hate change. This card was made with some die cuts that were given to me by my sister. i punched out some flowers and leaves and glittered then, which gives them a blue hue, which i quite like. The sentiment is one of my favourites which is computer generated. Hope you like it. TFL x
I live in Kent, and have been making cards for about 8 years. I have 2 gorgeous grandsons, Louis who is 9 and Fray is 4. My grandson Louis was diagnosed at 6 years old with having "DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY". This came as a complete shock to our whole family as we'd never heard about this form of muscle disease, nor is there any previous family history of this condition. The past year has been very painful for all of us, as we've had to learn a lot about Louis' condition and how he will be affected in the future.
There are a number of different types of muscular dystrophy, DUCHENNE being the most severe form. All of which are caused by faults in the genes which cause a cruel, progressive muscle weakness due to muscle cells breaking down which in time are gradually lost. This is a very rare and serious condition, which affects around 100 baby boys per year in the U.K. By the age of 8 to 11 years all boys are unable to walk, and confined to a wheelchair, and for all boys, this conditions is so serious, it is 100% fatal.
If you would like to donate to our charity to help in the finding of a cure for Louis, and all the other boys suffering, then please contact me.
