In my garden is---lots of flowers and Bees,the flower is from LeBlanche and the little Bee from Chocolate Baroque-I paper pieced with book pages and a little promarkers on leaves and Bees-the card was smooched through distress ink for the background and sentiment from Visible Image was stamped on offcut-the stamp used to ground the flower was a craft mag freebie.

Cath Wilson said...

Carol, I came to check up on what you meant by your comment and read the previous couple of posts...I'm so very sorry to hear about what's happening. My Dad had Alzheimmer's/Vascular Dementia, so I know a little of how that may have been unfolding for you, but to get the other diagnosis on top - plus your daughter's - my heart goes out to you, it really does.
I'll add them both - and you - to my prayer list. I tried to find an email address, but there isn't one, but please know that if ever you need an ear to 'bend' I'm always here. I know we don't know each other that well, but sometimes that actually helps when you need to get things off your chest.
I haven't been commenting much because I've not been too well, but I'm always at the other end of the internet in one way or another and always willing. I can't get out to do much of anything else right now!
God bless you all and praying for you.
