Made this using some gorgeous lilac card with tiny silver dots that i got from Alley Pally. It is so pretty, i love it. I also used a selection of craftwork card goodies and a woodware scallop punch. TFL x
I made this card for my BIL's birthday...It's a 6 inch square base card, then i used 4 punched squares in co-ordinating colours with the opposit corners rounded off. The gem in the middle was coloured with promarkers. Sentiment is computer generated. Hope you like it. TFL x
This card was inspired by Julie. I love this style of card cos it's "plain & simple", a bit like me, lol. and so easy to make. It's just a 6 inch square card blank with 3 die cut flowers with pearl brads in the centres. These have been attached to a rectangle of card that i put through my big shot with swiss dots embossing folder. The rectangle was then attached to front of card. The sentiment is computer generated. Hope you like it. TFL
Well with the help of my DC buddies, i have created my blog. I ain't got a clue what to do now, and dont even know if this post will show up. I think i have got a lot to learn, so will be grateful for any help.
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.
