It's a Funny Old Life!!

Morning Peeps. I hope this post finds you all well? I think I've been round and visited most of you by now and been amazed by everyone's beautiful creations, I've still got some visits to make but I'm getting there!!
I coloured this image up a few weeks ago while I was away on holiday and I've only just made it up into a card.......
Image - Kraftin' Kimmie watercoloured with DIs (I've also stamped the edge with an LOTV grunge corner stamp and then added Antique Linen DI).
Papers - First Edition Boho Chic.
Flowers - Hobbycraft.
Sentiment Sticker and Pearls - from stash.
Ribbon - I've found a stall in Bromley High Street that sells gorgeous ribbon and every week, they have a box with different 3m rolls in it, all for £1!!!

I loved these flower girl images as soon as I saw them and this one 'Rose' is my absolute favourite - I think she'll look good in lots of different colours!
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Right, that's it on the challenge front! If you're still with me, I'll explain my post you know, I've had a lot going on with my family lately - very sadly, my uncle who had been having chemo and was told there was a positive outlook in his treatment for lung cancer, was taken into hospital last week because he'd developed pneumonia. While they were running tests at the hospital, they discovered that the growth of his cancer has accelerated and have told the family that there's nothing they can do for him. This disease is just so devastating to so many families and my heart goes out to everyone who is in the same position, or has been at one time or another, as mine. It's a funny old life because the other day, after spending the day at the hospital visiting my uncle, as my mum and I left to go out to the lift, we looked out the window and this was the view........
Strange how your spirits can feel so low and something appears to lift them. Do you know what I mean? (And yes, I've also discovered instagram, so may well be boring you with some more photos at a computer near you, very soon ;-)) Well, I'll leave you with that thought.......I'm off to the hospital myself soon, I've got an appointment with the dietitian and will squeeze in a visit to my aunt while I'm there and then back later to play with my new goodies (inc some of the new magnolia stamps) that arrived from Bunny Zoe's!!! Have a good day, everyone................Take care of yourselves, wherever you are xxxxx
