For my FCCB click here.
The talented and lovely Susan has set this week's challenge and it is Gratitude.
We are to create a cricut project for something/someone we are thankful for.
I have lots of things to be thankful for ...Family,Friends,Health,Life
My project today is for someone that I am so very Thankful is in my Son.
I had a very difficult pregnancy and was lucky that both he and I came through it.
Ossian was 12 on Friday and this is the card I made for him....
He took up golf this year and is obsessed with it. His handicap is down to 14 and he is playing for the County. He has been invited to Prep school and School of Excellence for talented players with the potential of taking it further. His birthday card had to be golf!!
He also plays football and is captain of Havant Hockey and goes through for County trials for them in January. Yes,we do run around a lot between all this,work and school!!
Many of you will know that I have a difficult friendship with my Gypsy at times!! Lol. But I did pull it out to make this card.
I used Everyday Paper Dolls and Wrap It Up for the cuts. I have to apologise because I have mislaid my recipe ingredients for this project. If you read my previous post you will know about the building work and I think I just 'filed' my ingredients. I will post them when they reveal themselves!
I would just like to say thank you to Donna and Carole for their leadership and friendship at BBTB2.They are handing over the reins to Susan who I Know will take good care of it.Carole is remaining on the Design Team with us(hurray) and Donna is moving on :(.
Donna we will miss you at BBTB2 and wish you well.
Do check out all the wonderful inspiration from the team and link up your thankful project with us.
