Sorry that I am not in blogland very much at the moment ... my dad is still in hospital and very ill ... so I've not had much time for crafting and it took me about 3 weeks to make this card.. I've just been adding bits here and there when I get the time... my motivation being to make an extra special Christmas Card for my mum this year as she has been through so much... I think she will like this as she loves the vintage photos.
I will try to catch up with you all soon. 
Take care
Love and hugs

Hope you can pop over to our main blog at Divas by Design to check out the rest of the Team's fabulous Christmas Creations!

I'm scheduling this for Wednesday morning as I have a hospital appointment ... I'm SO sorry that I haven't been in blogland but my dad is still very poorly in hospital and so I am spending my time with him and family... I just can't get my head around much crafting at the moment... I did feel like doing a bit of crocheting the other evening and so I tried to make some flowers... the first couple looked rather like squished peas!! but after several attempts they are at least now resembling a flower shape!! LOL so I am getting lots of practice and eventually I hope to show you some flowers that I've made! :-))
Take Care all of you and I will catch up with you when I can... 
Love and hugs
