Just for You MIlton

Hi there!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  We did :0)

I did this card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday as sadly it is their last challenge, which I was surprised to find out and sad too.

A long time ago this challenge blog was the only one who recognised my work and gave me a chance by allowing me to be on the design team.  Their design team always, without fail made sure you got a comment from them.

I had let them down because at the time I was incredibly poorly, poorly to the point where I couldn't contact or speak or mingle with anyone, but I won't go into that, it's over now.  I'm well and fighting it now.

The lady Arlana who runs it has health problems so can no longer carry on with it.  She ran the blog with her lovely sisters and I wish Arlana and her sisters the best of everything and hope that Arlana's health problems improve and that she will be OK.

  5. Thank you Michelle.I hope you are doing well too. Your card is so adorable. I love the little bear and fun papers you have used. Arlana is doing ok. She just has a hard time using her hands for very long. They really hurt. So typing, making cards, etc are hard for her to do. The DT is still pretty much the same, so come and join us each week at SSW2.
    Hugs, Nancy

  7. Oh Michelle thank you so much for the sweet comment. Your card is adorable. So glad you are doing better and can play along. Yes I'll be okay just seems like I have a hard time keeping up since my surgerys. Sometimes it hard to type or just get my cards done.

  8. My tablets acting up. Have a sweet day! hugs Arlana
