One of the boys

Good morning from an overcast Derbyshire.

Well, I haven't been posting over the week-end, it's been a funny one really. Ben has been home and it's always nice to have him around. We went to the local town for hair-cuts, shopping etc. I have been doing some crafting , trying to get ahead of myself :).

Yesterday was a little strange, I felt really sad and then my mum called me at 9.30PM - my gran is doing really badly. She has not been eating nor drinking for the past 4-5 days and is now just lying in her bed with her eyes closed. So it looks like she properbly won't make 90 in 2 weeks time.

Anyways, here's today's card .....



........ my son has a friend and she's more "Oe of the boys". Don't think I have ever seen her wear anything slightly girly or be interested in girly stuff :). So I made this card for her - the image is just perfect - and kept the colours really neutral (she's black, brown and blue girl). Obviously bows and flowers were a no-no so it's a simple card. I will enter this into the first challenge at D'ARCY's DAIRIES
