Yesterdays attempt

While I was trying to put this card together yesterday my neighbour came to ask me to do a card for her and when she saw this card lying she insisted on having it.  My friends and neighbours know that if I sell any cards all the money goes to Cancer - so they are very supportive and get most of the cards they need from me.  Two years ago my 21 year old son was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in a very advanced stage.  His battle with it took one year and with fantastic hospital care and the prayers and support of family and friends he is now in remission.  Hence the Hodgkins Lymphoma awareness symbol on my blog.  Anyway here is the card and also a photo of my son now back to full health. Thank you for taking a look.

Incredibly pretty card Marie-Louise, I love the vintage design and beautiful lace border you have punched! I'm not surprised your neighbour loved this card and I think it's wonderful that the proceeds from the sale of your cards goes to cancer research :) Donna ♥ x
