WOYWW 198 - A bit late !!

Wow these Wednesdays come round quickly!! Sorry I did not post yesterday - I took the lappie to work with the intention of dashing off a quick post...then I left the memory card in the camera and then left that at home - so no photo to blog about. My excuse is that my lift arrived early and said 'shall we stop at McD's on the way to work!?'  I couldn't deny her, could I ???

Desk is a bit of a mess as I worked Tuesday night then went to meet a friend for some scrappin' time at ScrapAngels at lunch time on Wednesday!

Anyway! ...On my desk today is a card I made for a dear friend whose husband had been in the nursing home where I work for about 5 years. He had Parkinson's disease and was very poorly. Sadly he passed away recently and his wife very generously gave all the staff a cheque.

So here is a Thank You card I made for her.


The idea for the card came from my UKS friend Susi, whose blog can be found here :)

There is also the start of a layout in the top LH corner


Sorry for the brief post but I hope you all have a great WOYWW xx

  5. Your card is very pretty and I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it. It's too bad when work interferes with WOYWW, isn't it? Hope you're having a good week with some more time to play. ~ Laura #115

  6. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for your comment - interested that so often we have unknown connections of one kind or another.
    Your story about generosity and care is great, and the thank you card you created is lovely.
