Count Your Blessings

Hello and good morning to you!

Thank you all so much for your concern and kindness regarding my Aunt ... She is absolutely fine and is never still - always keeping busy ... I sneaked this photo on my mobile phone just to show you


There she is - my lovely 86 year old Aunt -  busy sewing ... making a little pinafore for a friends young granddaughter ... 
I am counting my blessings that she is doing so well ... and I am being thoroughly spoilt here.

... And talking of Counting Your Blessings ... that happens to be the theme of this weeks challenge at City Crafter ... chosen for us by the lovely Kirsty


Kirsty is asking that we create a project that must include the word
Bless, Blessed or Blessing 

Here's my card


I've had this Hero Arts Baby Carriage digital stamp for the longest time - yet up until now I have never used it ... It just seemed to go so well with the PTI die 'Blessed".


The papers are once again digital from Pink Petticoat Beach cottage collection ... which goes to show that they can be used for a baby card too


Our Guest Designer this week is the sweet Sue Lelli who is with us for the month of August  

I do hope you will come and join in with us this week as we count our blessings ... Don't forget to hop over to the blog and take a look at what the rest of our designers have in store for you ... 

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by

Till soon
