Coffee and Cream

How about this for a surprise another card from me.

Life is now beginning to get back to some sort of normality.
Well really it is the beginning of a new stage of life.
We have been through the resistance, the anger 
and the emotional blackmail
and now DH seems to be settling down in the aged care facility.
In fact he has made a lot of new friends and is a hit with the staff
I have been through the tears and the guilt at 
enjoying being on my own and am gradually learning to live on 
my own and am getting back to crafting again.

So here is what I have made.

so I chose April 2015 Coffee and cream.
With a Cuttlebug holly embossing folder and a holly leaf die
this is what I have come up with.

The inside too.
Am also going to enter it in:

Thanks for dropping in:

  1. Brilliant card Margaret, love the elegant simplicity of it.
    Great colours and design.
    Glad Hubby is setting in and enjoying his new situation. Please don't feel guilty, your own health and well being are every bit as important as the wonderful care he is now receiving.
