You are the Best

Oh my giddy aunt - it is absolutely blooming freezing here today.  Before I show you today's card I have some good news for you all - Lynne and Michael have finally found a flat and signed the lease etc at the weekend so we have spent the weekend getting it ready for them by cleaning, gathering furniture etc.  They are moving in on Thursday so it will be a massive wrench for me to see my 'baby' leaving home finally at the age of almost 27  years!!  We are just hoping it all works out for them both with the flat and the baby due in 8 weeks.  Its not the ideal start to a 'family' but hey ho that is the way they have chosen to do it so we have to accept it and support them.  It is a 10 min drive away and about 20 mins on bus so far enough away but close enough for Granny (me) to visit regularly ha ha.

Big empty nest approaching very rapidly - yikes!  The excitement of the baby will lessen that awful feeling for me hopefully - now so bad for Graham as he is Lynne's stepdad but they are very close so expect to have to comfort him too at some point :(

Onto today's card which I made in my freezing craft room - the way the wind is blowing means despite the heating being on it is still cold up here as the window sticks away out in a triangle. Brrrrr.....

 I have coloured my image with my PMs  & FMs.....
 Added a sentiment.....
 Completed card - hopefully you like what you see my friends.....
