Where do I start

Hi guy`s sorry I have not been around  for a while , I have had a lot going on, two weeks ago I had to be rushed into hospital , I`m now on the mend but I have to see my doc weekly and the nurse , one of my tabs had to be stopped straight away which give me complication`s as you are supposed to weaned off them which I didn`t know , then on Thursday my Sister-in-Law lost the battle to her Cancer ,she had been married to her hubby for 44yrs , I do find Sympathy card`s hard to do but I had to do 5 with all different verse`s in as 1 was for my brother-in-law and the other 4 for there children we went over today so I could hand deliver them . some are nearly the same but every verse was different and personal to the children and there children bless them .

On one good point just before Xmas my friend asked me to put my cards in her shop I have sold a few but where I should  now have loads done for the shop I haven`t managed to make many as not being well ,but hope I can now start to make at least 2 a day and my hubby will get them over to the  shop.

I got the new dies from C & C  as I wanted to pick my self up  even though I couldn't craft,
Well here are the cards ,
