Another great week......Not!

Good morning to all you lovely crafters and a special hello to my new followers, I'm so pleased you found my blog and hope you enjoy your visits.
I would normaly have returned the visits but this week I have had my Daughter in hospital so I've not had much time for blogging, I hope you understand.
I won't bore you all with the details but she is home and still quite poorly and now waiting to see the Gastric team at our Hospital cos that's the only avenue left and they are just scratching their heads
I'm at my wits end ,seeing your child in pain day after day and not able to help is gut wrenching.
So the only cards I've managed are my DT ones and I did manage to get round to some of you and will try to catch up over the weekend.
My card today is for Totally Papercrafts.
Our host is the lovely Kim and she has chosen the theme
'Pretty Pastels'
A super choice.
