Hi ladies, hope you are all well and enjoying your summer! We have had a cold windy July which is not at all up to the standards we usually have and I think a lot of tourists have been very disappointed that the weather is so unrealiable these days in this region.
I have had a difficult weekend but I have to say that difficulties let you dig deep and increase your desire to seek God and pray for all things! My DH had a fall from his motorbike, had to break for an old lady who breaked suddenly in her car on the highway and has to have a huge reparation done to his bike, if it is not declared totalloss.
I have my fourth chemo session tomorrow and need to keep my strength and focus on the Lord who is able to bring me through once again! As I said I am learning so much in this time.

A share of some cards I quickly made this morning in the collage style. Thanks to Sue for the heart-lace. I am entering this one into the Simon Says Stamp, Anything Goes challenge.

and the last card which I decorated with some toille lace also thanks to Sue.

Thanks again for all your support!
God bless you!


  1. These are gorgeous and the top one my fav.

  5. So sorry about your DH ... I hope he is ok ... bikes can at least be fixed ...
