So, dad is well into his treatment now and mum and I are going to the the hospital every other day to see him - in fact we are off there today. It's a huge place and we have to walk miles - I'm hoping to be a bit fitter by the time I go home!
See you soon xx

  4. Took me a while to get this set! But I do love it. Your card is just super - love the layers and soft, neutral tones!

  5. Love the colour combination in this and the tree is gorgeous.

  6. Great masculine color combo! The tree is strong and aged, which will provide the perfect shade to lay under when retired. Great inspiration card!
