Happy Birthday Wellington

Afternoon Everyone,

I am a bit late then the normal Friday update, but my husband is on holiday from work and we where due to go away to the lake district but the snow stopped that, the site we where planning on going to had 5 foot snow drifts two days before we where due to go so decided to stay home instead and explore the local area. So got a tad busy.

But I am here today and the card I am sharing is a card I have made for my Grandad he will be turning 80 at the end of April (day before my own) he is a sufferer from dementia and unfortunately is now in a home, even though he does not recognize who I am any more I still know who he is and he loves gardening so decided on the lovely image from the Do Crafts Wellington CD I decoupaged it up and using the Do Crafts Design Studio, I created my own background paper. 
I mounted this onto various different mats to give it a bit of a texture to the card and added a piece of ribbon which I put another piece of ribbon under to create a "knot" 

I hope you like and as always all comments are appreciated.

This is a lovely card you have made for your Grandad. Dementia is a terrible illness, heartbreaking too. Lovely to see that you think about him like you said, you still know who he is even if it isn't reciprocated. Know how you feel, been there too xx

Thank you so much for coming over and joining in with out 9th Challenge over at Crafty-Emblies.

Great Big Huge Hugs
