Just a note to say.....I'm thinking of you

Hi Everyone

As you may have seen from one of my earlier posts - we have unfortunately had to close the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog for the time being as Diane, who runs the blog, has sadly been diagnosed with cancer and is taking some time off to concentrate on spending time with her family and her treatment.

You just can't find the words to say something to someone who is going through this tough time so I decided I would make Diane a card instead. And as it is a special one I've gone a bit girly and used pink, lace and a doily. I think this will make Diane smile as she knows I don't do girly or pink! Here's the card:-

I hope you like it and I hope Diane does too!

Sending a huge hug and best wishes to Diane and her family and I hope to see her around in blogland very soon.
