Life is about learning to dance in the rain...

Hello sweet bloggers,

I have not been crafting since the past few days as Aleeza has been ill - she has been down with this wretched fever since the past week. Finally today I took her for a blood test and it is not dengue fever (which is not uncommon here) but she has been put on antibiotics to get rid of her throat infection.

This is a card I made a while ago and it sold off as well. I am not sure whether I have posted it earlier - I just wanted to do a post to distract me from Aleeza and the sentiment on this card touched my heart. This was a card that was made for an order but someone else bought it and loved it even though the hand written sentiment is not perfect. The lines are not straight but that is the best I could do. The printed papers I thought matched perfectly with the sentiment.

I will enter this card into: - anything goes - anything goes - blues, brown and beige - anything goes

I wish you good health, joy abundance ...

Sorry, forgot to wish you all a very happy Valentine's day - thank you for all your love.

Much love,

Your card and the sentiment are really lovely, Monica.
I hope Aleeza soon feels much better. Our children just seem to pick up one bug after another when they are young x

Very pretty card, Monica.....and LOVE the sentiment too!

Poor little Aleeza (and momma too!). I know this is not fun for either one of y'all. Hopefully the meds will kick in and make her feel better. Sending both of y'all big hugs.
