So many Thank you's

Hi everyone, well i haven't been blogging much this week, some of you may know that i had my son Adam home and on Sunday we had to say our goodbyes as he's off on a 6 month tour. We had a lovely meal out on Saturday and took loads of family photo's, there is one of Adam and me on the right of my blog, he's enjoying his last pint of harp, bless. I have had so many messages of support from all the lovely ladies in blogging land and the SOS website and i want to say a big thankyou to you all, it really means a lot to me. I have made this card for one special lady who sent me a lovely e mail, i think most of you know her its Emma/Elf Creations, Emma i think your fantastic, you have been through so much lately including loosing a very close friend yet you still had time to write to me offering a listening ear and collecting all those Christmas cards for the troops, your an angel, thankyou. x

Ok i also meant to do this earlier (lots of catching up to do) The SBS 18 challenge is going through some changes, originally we had been taking it in turns to do the design team but this didn't seem to work out too well and we were all getting a bit mixed up with who was doing what and when etc so it was agreed that a design team would be set up and a guest design team for member's who couldn't commit to weekly challenges due to work, family commitments etc. So the SBS 18 has now changed to Crafty Creations, the new design team will take over in a couple of weeks but until then the challenge will carry on as usual. I also want to thank Jaime for sending me this lovely image and paper used on this card. x

oh, and yes - it was Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel I used - I'm not sure but I guess this is the same as thick embossing powder!?!

That card is gorgeous and yep, Emma is fab isn't she?

I'm so pleased you had a good time with your son. 6 months may seem ages ATM, but it's not. It'll be here real soon.

Take care. Love and hugs xxx

Your welcome. My daddy comes home for a visit from Iraq in a little over a month. Can't wait. Then he has to go back to finish the rest of his year. It has gone by fast and he has gotten a load of cookies and Grape Kool-aid from me, he says it is what keeps him going. Haha.

Beautiful, Donna! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with your son. It cannot be easy to see him go, but take courage, he will be back soon!
