Commission Card

Hi Everybody It’s been a busy time at my end since I last spoke with you, Brian arrived from the UK on Wednesday night as is doing very well, I think the change of scenery has done him the world of good, he has good and bad days which is only to be expected but on the good days he goes into work for a couple of hours a day, although he does gets very tired, then we know its time for him to rest and take it easy, the time he is at work is good for him mentally too and to see everyone has given him a real boost.
The dear man also brought my computer back, yeh got my digital images, he also brought with him some of my crafting goodies and new stamps I had bought. The card I created last night is with one of the new stamps and is a commission card for a friend I hope she likes it.
