Not so happy Weekend and some Cards/flowers

Its Sunday and another weekend has whizzed by, we are another week closer to christmas ladies, can you believe it?

Well its been a busy week for me with no crafting. I did these two cards that im showing you today last week. They are not my usual style but i have enjoyed doing them, and will be making more similar cards when i get chance.

One of my closest friends lost her father to cancer this week, and on top of that i have alot going on in my personal life. For that reason i have decided to take at least a week out from blogging. Possibly longer if needed.

I hate not being able to give one hundred per cent to anything i do, and at the moment i feel i can't spend enough time blogging and leaving comments to you wonderful people out there like i should. I hope when i return i can visit you on a regular basis. In the meantime thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me and i look forward to visiting you all again soon.

As you all know ive been doing a floristry course since the end of September, i have to say although i am enjoying it, im finding it hard to stay fully motivated. I think it hindsight i should have left the course for next year. Never mind, i will struggle through, and the upside is i have a houseful of flowers. I love fresh flowers.
This is an arrangment i did for my living room from some fresh dahlias i brought on the roadside, aren't they gorgeous?

This is the basket i did in fridays class for my mother in laws 70th birthday. Not a very good photo as it looks unbalanced, but there is another lily the other side!

Well ladies have a good week, sending you all big hugs and thank you for visiting.

Gorgeous cards, love their elegance.
Please don't worry about blogging, it becomes a chore if you do.
Just do it when you can or just visit and not worry about commenting.
Look after yourself.
