I'm so lucky

I have been busy this week with helping my son move into his new home with his partner, (still am). Plus visiting Mum and doing all her jobs.
Gardening (yak) and taxiing Alan to the doctors 3 times this week.
I DID manage two cards! WOW! One was my DT card for Peachy Keen and the other for Mercy's sketch challenge.
I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!!

On a much lighter note, I wanted to show you this fabulous 'Pay it forward' I received from Natalie of Crafting Fun!

I'm thrilled to bits with it because Natalie thought of me in the first place and because it's so perfect! It's the little sister to my tote bag, even the same gorgeous colours and is JUST wonderful!!!
Natalie, I've taken a while putting it on here, but I wanted to give it it's own well deserved space.

Not only this wonderful little surprise package, but the most gorgeous card too! Look....

Isn't it GORGEOUS!!!
Natalie! Thank you SO much for these. I'm absolutely delighted.

Now it's MY turn to 'Pass it forward'.

It started with the movie "Pay it forward". The role model of Haley Joel Osment, gives a great deed to another person. The only condition for the one who receives it, is that he or she has to then promise to do something that matters to others. Someone has now taken this principle further, and made it into a gift. The rules are simple - everyone can join, and only 3 rules have to be fulfilled:

1. You must have your own blog, so that you can spread the message.
2. You must like to make others happy.
3. You must ship your gifts to 3 people within the next 365 days

I'm passing MY 3 gifts forward now to...........


Sassy Sue


Lisa and Barbara, please e-mail me your address.

These brave ladies, have had, or are having, a traumatic time and I hope by choosing them I can put a smile on their faces for a moment or two.

Thank you Natalie! Viv xxx
