In March of 2015 I almost lost my Mom.  She walked into the hospital a healthy active women but came out in a wheelchair.  She was in the hospital for 9 months.  The first three she barely left her room, progressing eventually to the hall and then the inside the hospital walls.  But on a beautiful day in June I wheeled her outside to sit in the sunshine for the first time.  It such a exhilarating experience for both of us.  I will treasure this day as it was the first day I saw my Mom smile in months.

Today my Mom is active once again, albeit in a new normal way.  I am thankful I get to text and talk to her whenever I want.

I chose the Sangria paper because I love the bright colours and it reflects how we both felt that day soaking the sun.  I also used the Sangria compliments and  poppy thick twine.



Don’t forget there is a brand new Seasonal Expressions available.  Please email me if you would like a copy.


Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Arlene at
