Well hope you all had a lovely Easter and a breakaway from the norm. Apologies for being AWOL for much of the month, I’ve had a new massage therapist added to my treatment many months after being told I’m carrying 30+kilos of fluid, who has added new tasks to my days and weeks that I have had to adjust to, who knew that a massage could make you so tired for a few days afterwards, or perhaps that is just me.
Thank you to all the lovely ladies who Congratulated me on joining the Design Team over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends blog, it was also my first scheduled blog post, never having figured out how to do so without the kind help from Denise.
Enough about all that and on to my card for my niece who lives in a different state and we can’t send Chocolate treats to her as they melt (she got gift vouchers for of all places Bunnings Hardware) and gift bag for Easter for my Mum which was filled with some good old Aussie Cadbury Chocolate eggs, I felt I was cheating a little with the gift bag very little colouring at all.
