Getting back into the swing of things








Firstly can I thank all that participated in yesterdays Colour Blog Hop. I am finding these monthly challenges really fun. I have seen all the participants entries and they are all fab. I am, however, having problems with adding comments. So if you haven't received a comment from me, I'm sorry and I'm hoping to sort the problem out if I can. I think it may have to do with changing my e-mail address on Goggle and it not recognising it properly.



Secondly, after my wonderful holiday ( some photos to follow later) I am feeling refreshed and in a more creative frame of mind. I have so many projects I want to do and complete, and I have so many ideas. I just need to get myself organised abit more and then allow myself more time to create. I love this hobby of mine so I should dedicate all I can to it.




I thought I would show you the card I made for a friend who is going to give it to her aunt for her birthday. The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp (I am starting a little collection of the LOTV stamps of late) which I can't remember the name of at the moment coloured in with Pro-Markers. I have used my Martha Stewart butterfly stamp that my brother R kindly got me for my recent birthday and the lettering is American Crafts thickers.




I hope you like. I'm trying to build up my card making confidence and this card is the first card I have been commissioned to make. Abit scary, but my friend loved it.




Anyway, hopefully I will be back later to show you some photos from my holiday once I have decided from the very many I have are the best ones to highlight for you.




Have a good day and I will speak to you very soon




Love Lesley xx

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
