The lady who I did the 'onesie' maternity card for, see earlier post, had a little boy - Oliver.

This shop front card is from Kanban, and was very easy to assemble, best of all it posts flat.

For a themed swap on cardexchangeuk I adapted a scrapbook page I did when I had a spare 15 minutes and made it into a card.

Square card featuring a Pet:

I took it literally as usual. Background paper was from Nitwits (I think). Photo is mine and I coloured a plain white flower using a pink promarker.

I captioned Murtle's story and also found a lovely quote to use on the insert. Used CAP for the insert.

If you've visited my blog before or know me, you will know that I suffer from Severe Depression, I have done for most of my adult life, having only been on meds for it from 2006. Crafting is one way of my dealing with it. Its a constant and very tiring battle trying to keep yourself feeling 'normal'. When the blackness over takes you, its totally debilitating and very frightening - you are not in control of your own mind, moods overtake you and swallow you up.

Over on Daisy trail, two lovely ladies decided to do something about the taboo of Mental Health and put forth a challenge 'HEADS UP'  all about Mental Health Awareness. This is my page:
