Sending hugs

Hello there...
It's bank holiday monday here and the city will be heaving with people... It's the Beatles festival, with  groups playing live everywhere, and a few miles away is the famous Cream Fields music festival. Thankfully it's warm and the sun is shining...

 I have another card to share, made from left overs


 The background was a piece of previously sponged and water splattered cs and I added some translucent embossing paste with a stencils over the top


The sentiment was cut from a sponged and siver embossed left over and the die cut leaf was smooched in versamark and embossed


An update on my Aunt...
We've spoken many times over the past few days and as I expected, she made the sudden decision to move scared by her recent stay in hospital. Having had a few days to settle she's now thinking differently. In Lincoln she has a far better quality of life - I've always known that, the north doesn't have nearly as much to offer, so I never pushed the issue of her moving, much as I wished she were nearer. Where she is she has all her friends around her and they really look after her. Her home is safe and perfect in everyway for her needs, quiet, in a pretty rural village, and ground level with much cleaner air than here. For a person with asthma and heart problems that's a big thing. Sadly nothing here could compete to the care she recieves where she is - from the health authorities to the volunteer drivers who take her anywhere she wants to go.....And more importantly, she loves living there and admits she would be so unhappy to leave it all behind. 
It goes without saying that I would love to have her with me, I adore her, but I know how independent she is, she loves her own company, having people around for an hour or so is fine but living with family, much as we love them, is a no no. We are very alike in that way so truth be told, she doesn't really want to give up her life in Lincoln and leave her friends. Somehow we will work it out, so that she has the best life she can for however many years she has...

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a beautiful day
