Hi everybody and a very warm welcome to my new followers.  As you can see I have the Hodgkins Lymphoma badge on my sidebar.  This is because my son (who was 21 at the time) was diagnosed  4 years ago.  When he was diagnosed he was in the latter stages of the disease (stage 4).  Well my reason for telling you this is that he enrolled in University shortly after he was diagnosed and  attended classes between his chemotherapy and radiotherapy sessions which took almost a year and last week he got his exam results and has passed and is now B.Sc.  I am so very proud of him.

Anyway, my card today was a commssion for a 50th birthday.  The little flower was my first attempt at a flower made from crafters clay and a little mould.

                               

Thank you for taking a look.

Dat is een situatie waar je met recht trots op kunt zijn. Het is toch al zwaar om dit mee te maken, maar als je dan ook nog dit bereikt! PETJE af.
Je kaart is erg mooi en je roos is goed gelukt.
