A bit of Sunshine


I didn't think I would have a card for today wasn't feeling crafty after the meetings I've had this week but I felt better in the evenings and since the sketch on Totally Gorjuss was a nice simple one, with the help of Tilda who is also quick to layer the card came together quite quickly.
Yes I know its that Sizzix embossing folder again but  I couldn't help it and with a few bits of First Edition Boho Chic the card was made. I didn't think it needed flowers, it would've been a bit too much and especially with the flowers embossed in the oval which was dotted with a sakura soufflĂ© pen.
Without going into too much detail but its been decided that my Mum needs 24 hour care because of the non responsive epidsodes, we are just waiting for some new tablets to see if they work which is doubtful. Then forms will be sent to confirm funding and it will be a case of waiting for a bed.
So you understand things are a bit stressful especially splitting up a married couple of over 50 yrs and convincing them that this is for the best.

    Such a difficult decision for you all with your Mum, and things are doubly difficult when a couple has been together for such a long time but I hope it's not too long before you get your Mum settled. x

  47. So sorry to hear of your situation regarding your Mum. It is so sad they will be apart.
    Do they have care homes where you live that allow for the one partner to live in the assisted living area (their own apartment, laundry, cleaning and 2 meals a day) with a wing or separate building on the grounds where they have extended care (24 hour care).
    Our friends found a place like that and are on a wait list to get in.

    I wish you the best in your search to find the best care for your Mum. Your folks are so lucky to have family that are careing and nuturing.
    Bless you!

    You card is really lovely!
