Made this easel card using a very pale blue backing paper and a selection of white die cuts of which some were donated to me by my sister. I inked the edges of the die cuts to make them stand out. The large flower was handmade which i then smothered in glitter glue, Aww... it's all twinkly and pretty. Hope you like it. TFL xx
Decided to do something a bit different. OMG, although this looks a quick and easy card, because it is out of my comfort zone it took me forever. I just can't get me head around what embellishments to use and how to work out the layout. I used a LOTV image, Papermania capsule linen paper a Prima flower and Marianne leaves and corner die. The butterfly is cut from a Hobbycraft punch. The raffia and sentiment have been stapled on (get me). lol TFL xx
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.
