A Little Elf..

Hi Ladies

I'm here to share my card for Polka Doodles..  unfortunately this will be the last of the Digi Queens DT posts - as the team is being closed for one reason and another - quite sad as it had not long been formed... but hey ho, I've enjoyed using these cute images in the short time I've been part of the team.  So thanks Nikky and good luck for you and Polka Doodles in the future.

This little chap is from the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs collection...  and the papers are also part of the same.


Now I had some very sad (although not unexpected) news last night.... my lovely Mum-in-Law (Mum of my late husband and proxy Mum to me after I lost my own Mum in 1989) - passed away peacefully last night.  She was 90 years old and had been ill for some time, and then had recently developed dementia also.  It is now a blessed release for her.  She was a very kind hearted and extremely special lady -  always a very good friend to me through extremely difficult times - and my girls and I will miss her love greatly.  

Big hugs to all..
