Hello to Wednesday, my friends. I’m really late to the party today ‘cos I’ve had 24hrs away from home and not been back long. Our elder daughter came to look after John while I travelled down from here to Rugby to see my dad. He’s been ill lately and because John has been so very ill I haven’t been able to see him since the beginning of December. It was a great visit – he recognised me, we had a lovely time together, and I drove home here today after staying with friends overnight. John “did good” with his physiotherapist daughter, so it was a successful time all round.

So, my desk is neglected – but that doesn’t mean I have been idle…. I thought I’d show you this photo in the absence of desk events!

These are two “unpublished” cards I have recently made for John. The top one was for his 70th birthday in January. An easel card with a Sheena Douglass image and sentiment, then a choice of special moments in our lives – John the day he very nearly got to the top of Snowdon; holding Bethany our first grandchild; holding an owl last autumn; a night in the Albert Hall, London at the Proms concert; reading a story to our own daughters; standing on Whistler Mountain in Jasper, Canada for our Silver anniversary; and enjoying watching the grandchildren on their trampoline. Beneath the picture of us on Whistler mountain, made so that it would lift and reveal the words, I folded a piece of paper and wrote the message.

The second card is the pergamano Christmas card I made for him. Star shaped, it all folds up so that when it opens out, there is a smaller card within for the message. A ribbon on the top means it can be hung on the Christmas tree along with the baubles!

So, what else have I been up to this week – making a few cards which I have actually got around to entering into some challenges.. The previous two blogs – yes, I’ve actually posted twice since last Wednesday’s WOYWW!!! – should find the entries – simple stuff, but satisfying in that I have actually had the time to do them!

So, that’s us this week, folks. Back home now, John doing OK, back to the regular routine. I’ll do my best to visit – but it will take a few days. I really do appreciate your visits and comments, and I apologise that I can’t always leave comments on your posts. If you are on Google+ there are some who obviously have different settings to others, because some I can comment on, others I can’t. I do visit you, and enjoy your work

Why not join the fun which is WOYWW? Pop over here – http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ and discover a NEW World!
Take care my dear friends. God bless you.

    Hi Margaret You snuck in there – I didn’t realise there were any more takers on WOYWW. Lovely to have you join in again, I did think about you though and hoped things were fine in Wales. Great to hear you got away to see your dad, how lovely for him and for you that you managed a visit. Now to the cards – that 70th is a bit special isn’t it. I have never seen an easel card done like that – marvellous! And what a lovely idea and keepsake for John. Full of admiration for the Pergamano card – I used to do that a long time ago so appreciate how much goes into making one even a simple one – but yours is magnificent. So glad you managed to get on here – Blessings to you both Neet 1 xx

    Hello Margaret, I’m glad that the trip went well and you had a special visit with your Dad. I’m sure it meant a great deal to him. I’m glad that things went well with your Hubby and daughter too. That must have put your mind at rest. They are two very beautiful cards and special too. he pictures on the easel card are lovely. The pergamano card is a beauty. I do it for special cards but have never made a folded card like yours. It’s lovely. Barbxx

    Beautiful cards! I love to do different and unique things. I might have to try making an easel card! Glad to hear your visit with your Dad went well and that John tolerated your absence and your daughters care! Hope you have a great week. Vickie #58
