The postman came bearing parcels yesterday and I couldn't wait to use the new stash that was in them!!!  Sympathy cards are never easy to make and I thought my new dies were just perfect for a simple card.  Hope you like!

Mr C is working today so I'm going to get the ironing done and after school I've to take my granddaughter to the dentist.  She's almost 14 but still has 4 baby teeth that refuse to come out and are making her adult teeth crooked.  The time has come for them to be taken out so it's two out today and the other two next week.  I'm not looking forward to it and I bet neither is she!  I'll keep you posted.
