Be yourself ...

Hello ....
I hope you are well ... I have had a busy weekend ... last night I was at an auction at the Bridge Chapel ... it was to raise funds for the "Bungalow Appeal" ..... Briefly ... the bungalow is a place the church were able to mortgage as a home for 4 ladies who are mentally and/or physically challenged ( along with support workers).The aim is to buy this home and then mortgage another ... and so on ... Not only will these homes provide a safe environment ... but we have to remember that some of these people have never known a home life ... many are fortunate and have loving caring families ... but what happens to their children when they are no longer around?.. I think you get the picture ...
So we had an auction and it was such fun! Before, my husband retired we were fortunate to attend a few "black tie" charity auctions ... one of which had quite a few ''Wags" ... and it was so funny because my husband would say "I'll bid on that for you" (it could be anything) and when the bidding started the Wags would bid in thousands of pounds!! money no object ... so needless to say I never got anything! ... but I got a few things last night including the use of a cottage in Wales for a few days ...


I managed to make a card this evening for the Waltzingmouse challenge ... I apologise for the photo but it is night time in the UK right now and so I have no naturally light .. This is the sketch ..

.. and this is my card ...



Just some scrap papers, ribbon, lace and a pearl brad ...


Till soon my friends - keep safe
