Family Time...

We had a family gathering on Monday ... attended a farewell barbecue for Ross (my great nephew) and his Mum and the annual Lifeboat show on the beach just across the road from their house, made for a lovely day ... even the sun shone and for the first time it felt like summer! True to form I suppose ... the children all return to school and now the sun shines! It goes very cold at night though but I can live with that ...
It was good to be with my small family group ... though the house and garden were full to bursting with people ... Like many families, we have known a lot of tragedies ... lost too many young and beautiful people far too soon ... but we have survived ... a little frayed around the edges (well maybe a lot) ... but we are stronger and closer for it.
Inspired by my family I made this card today ...



A mixture of Websters Pages with some Papermania and the little birds are from Vinnie Pearce again - There is only 1 bird in the digital kit so I altered the colour and voila! 2 birds ...





I picked up the little scalloped lace at a flea market  ... thought it looked so pretty.
More to share tomorrow ...

Till then - keep safe
Ros

Such a sweet card Ros. The birds are wonderful. I like how you altered the color. Great idea.

I understand about what you are saying. It seems like sometimes too many bad things happen. I just say it is "life happening". I just hope soon more good happens. :)

This is so lovely Ros, I love the sentiment too! The lace from flea market is so pretty, too bad, we don't really have flea market here in Vegas. And how clever to make 2 birds out of 1. Bravo my friend!
