Apologies for not visiting recently, I thought I was recovering from a viral infection when it floored me. I made this card a few weeks ago, and have spent almost no time at all crafting for the past week. I hope the worst is now over, and the aches and pains are relieved soon.

My card is for my son and daughter-in-law and though not a Valentine is intended to tell them how much we love them and how much family means.

Hi Meg, sorry to hear that you are still poorly, these viruses can take so long to go and pull you down so much. I hope you are back to tip top soon.
I love this image, one I've not come across before, and it's a gorgeous card and what a lovely way to let your son and his wife know how much they mean to you, Kate x

I hope you are feeling much better today Meg, some of these nasty viruses last a while and looks like that's what's happened to you.
A gorgeous card and such a lovely reason to send it too. I don't think we tell our loved ones enough just how much they mean to us.
Take care,

How adorable and with no sentiment on the front you can use this for so many occasions, it's practical to have cards like this at hand for any short notice needs. Your great at layering your cards, beautiful arrangement of flowers too.
