Tula's Heart

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  I've woken up this morning to a beautiful sunny morning here in New Zealand and it's still winter.  It reminds me of the same day 15 years ago when I gave birth to my eldest son Liam who turns 15 today.  Happy Birthday my darling.

Today is another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

I loved all the touches on your card this week Kathie. Those heart dies are so great and I loved the crystal effects on her bow. So cute

Lisa Lynn said...

Kathie, your card is so darling. Love the glossy heart. I'm so sorry you can't be with your son on his birthday when he is as such a young age. I'm sure you want to squeeze and hug him even though he wouldn't want that. Well, in a few weeks you can give him a belated birthday pinch. I accidentally called my daughter tonight and she knew I was upset about work we just have such a connection so that is why I miss her she knows how to read me and vice versa. I just know she is growing up and I'm growing older, hehe. Sometimes reality sucks.
