Firstly, I would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone that sent well wishes and Prayers for my Mum’s surgery this morning, we were really touched by your kindness and I know Mum appreciated your good wishes immensely. I’m happy to say that everything went well with the surgery and results were good so we are all breathing a sigh of relief. Thank you all so much for your kindness, you are appreciated more than you know.

Now for todays card… our Challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias this week is ‘Winter Blues’ We would like you to use blue as the main colour in your creation. I’ve chosen In The Snow Ski Tilda from the Winter Wonderland collection and created this pretty card:
