Tulips and Proud News

How are you? It's cold and icy here but nothing like many of you in the mid north west of America are experiencing. 
When I was a kid we could guarantee snow and ice in the winter months ... We got on with things, but over the years it changed, the winters got milder and we got 'softer' so much so that everything stops here when there's a cold spell.
 I stay warm and spend time in my craft room with the kitties for company.

Today I'm sharing one of two cards I've made using Clearly Besotted tulip stamps and dies

It's a birthday card for my SIL ... I'm trying to get ahead whilst I have some inspiration

I also used a frame die and a triangle die to slide those tulips into

My DH has a birthday soon and I whenever I try to make his he pops into my room... I managed to make an exploding box but still have a little card to make for him...

I also wanted to share some news with you... Some of you are aware that my great nephew Ross has Meobius Syndrome and it's been tough for him over the years. As a baby he had to be tube fed and unable to walk or talk he was able to learn sign language even though he only has a couple of fingers. If that wasn't enough, his daddy, my beautiful nephew died suddenly from a brain tumor on Ross's 3rd birthday ... 
With much perseverance, operations and treatments Ross was eventually able to walk and talk.
He is an intelligent and determined young man who is now in a mainstream public school and I want to share with you his latest achievement...
Despite all his disabilities he has just been nominated for athlete of the month

I couldn't be more proud of this guy!

Have yourselves a lovely day and be safe
