Take It Easy

It seems ages since I sat & made any cards, my one & only child is buying his own property, so I am really busy running around & helping him through the process, whilst all the time feeling sick inside as I know I am going to miss him so much. He & I are so close & whilst he will be the other end of town, I realise its time for him to move on at the age of 23. He keeps saying he is glad I am still nearby, so I hope that once he has moved (July/August as it is a new build) things will settle down & I can start to relax again. I think until then I will be like most mums, wanting to keep your children safe each & every day.Better not write anymore, the tears which are never far away are on their way

Anyway, this image is a freebie I picked up somewhere on the net (sorry) & I have coloured with Promarkers. MS punch Deep edged Daisy used to create the strip. Sissix swirls made from scrap card. Chocolate box ribbon made from stash. Flowers from stash, as are the candy buttons.. Sentiment chalked & is from a QVC kit bought years ago.
Added Glossy Accents to the water to give more dimension.

I have entered this into the following challenges
Sentimental Sundays Lets Get Wet (plus sentiment)
Gingerloft Blue
Crafty Catz April Showers (water)
One Stop Crafts Spots & Dots

One last thing, I have not managed to get around my normal blog listings & comment, so please forgive me, I will get back in the swing of things soon..
Oh & and another thing...... I have a blog candy going up in the next week, so please look out for it, this is to celebrate my big 50th birthday.
