Butterfly and Dragonfly.

Hi there. I thought it was time I got back into the swing of things and start making cards and blogging again. It's been great to keep up with all your blogs and follow what you've all been up to, crafty wise and just generally.
2014 is being kinder to our family so far. Chris, my eldest at Medical School in Sheffield, had big written exams on the 3rd of January which he passed to our and his relief. Kieran, who had an essay to write the day after his Grandma died, got a high mark in it and another he wrote at Christmas did even better. He's studying History in Newcastle.  They both graduate this year so we're really happy that despite their loss they managed to keep going.

Right back to the card. This is the card I made for my mum-in-law's birthday on the 26th January, the same date as my birthday too!

I'm not quite happy with the placement of the butterfly and the dragonfly but she loved it which is the main thing.
