Wild weather

Hello

We've been having wild weather here these past few days ... Very high winds and rain ... my garden looks a mess this morning ... the bird table down and the trellis arch in pieces ... In the southern part of the UK I think it is much worse and some have lost their lives to the storms so I am grateful we are ok here.

A few days ago we learned that a dear friend and colleague had sadly died ... In my opinion there are very few typical English gentlemen left ... Mike was certainly one of these ... it is a sad loss ... and I needed to make a card ...


This digital stamp from Pink Petticoat is my go to stamp for these occasions ... and as I had cut a few cards on the silhouette ... this came together quite quickly and simply


It does say ... sincere condolences ... my bow kind of hides the sentiment on these photos ...
And you may be interested to know that Pink Petticoat is having a sale at the moment ... worth taking a look ...

On a lighter note ... My husband and I had a lovely anniversary dinner last night ... (braving the storms) ... Thank you so much for your kind wishes ... and Thank You to my friend Cindy Adkins who made me a blog button ... actually she did 3 for me and it was hard to choose one! 
Pssst! ... it's her birthday today ... so if you get a chance go leave her some love ...

I hope you have a lovely day and keep safe!

Till soon
