Hedgie and Robin

Hello to all my blogging friends, just thought I would come on and tell you why I have been missing, well sadly my mum has been poorly on and off now for a long time and as some of you know I go and look after her.
She was in hospital the other week and had investigations done it turns out she has lung cancer, I am devastated as you can imagine it's 4yrs ago since dad passed with the same thing.
I am there for mum and it's all I can do she does have good and bad days there is no treatment for her but she doesn't want chemo anyway.
Thank you all for your kind comments on my blog, I do have cards in draft so may upload some.I will get round to see your blogs when I can.
This is one of the cards I made with the cute hedgie, a gorgeous holly embossing folder,i used some glittery charm gems and glamour dust.
The sentiment is recycled.
