You're doubly sweet...

Happy Sunday everyone and happy October 0-:

I have been on a bit of a break from crafting recently.

We've had a tricky summer as my eldest son had a motorcycle accident in July.
I'm happy to report he is fortunately well on the mend but frankly it has been a tough few months.

sooooo...

I have a few thank you's today...
to my lovely hubby and youngest son who have really kept the boat afloat at home,
to my eldest son's employer and friends who have rallied round to keep his spirits up
and to my darlin' friends who have given such love and support....  (you know who you are)!

The thank you's are n't quite complete today because I have few in respect of today's cards for wonderful 
Dies To Die For

Firstly to our Faye for her inspiration and patient support and feedback in respect of my no lines colouring,
secondly to our Elaine for her wonderful inspiration in respect of colouring backgrounds and grounding an image, and finally to our lovely Tracy for not giving up on me whilst I've had a little break!

I would never have had the confidence to colour these sweeties without the help of these lovely ladies!

phew - onto the crafting then!

So pleased to hear he's on the mend hun. I know it's been a tough time for you recently so much love to you and the boys (all 3 of them!). Your cards are GORGEOUS hun, the no-lines technique is stunning and your colouring is amazing. If this is what you do when your mind is on other things, then there's no hope for the rest of us! :0) Big hugs. xxx
