As I am sure you will all have guessed by my lack of absence in blogland .. .. things have been VERY BUSY in the House of Hearts .. .. especially on the wedding front .. .. .. and although there is still plenty to be doing, things are starting to calm down to a more "just plain busy" pace of life.
One of my "happy couples" will get married this Saturday and I am just hoping this lovely weather will last for them. They are one of four weddings I have been working on over the last few weeks and now they have all left the building I need to empty all of their boxes ready for filling with supplies for new "happy couples".
This now means I can turn my attention to some of the general orders I need to get crossed of my crafty do list .. .. as well as make a stack of cards we need for family and friends!
But before I started on those, I made this card whilst thinking of all those people who have been affected by the awful happenings this week in Manchester. I can't even imagine what injuries some of those poor people have encountered. So much hurt, pain and worry .. .. and so many lives changed forever in a nanosecond.
I don't know about you but when the radio alarm goes off in the morning or I switch the TV on I just dread what the news is going to reveal.
What a scary world we live in at the moment!
Anyway, here we go:

Before I go I would just like to say a very sincere thank you for all the lovely comments and emails I received following my last post when I told you about my Son's album release. It has been a very exciting time for him (and us), which has seen him being asked to do magazine interviews and even hearing his music played on the radio. Thankfully there are still some nice things happening in the world.
Catch you again soon.
