Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers. Dad died peacefully last night, after a long time trapped in a body that would not work. He's at peace now and we are all grateful for that, though sad. I'll be back when I can.

Sorry but I don't think I'll be posting for a while. My dear, dear Dad, aged 87, who has been in a Nursing home in a very poor state for some years now was admitted to hospital last Thursday with a chest infection. They sent him back to the home for what they call "end of life" care, with all of our agreement, as there is nothing more they could do for him that would make any significant difference. We are now letting Nature take its course. I'll be back when I can.

Play Date Cafe 2

Gosh, fancy it being a week since the last one! We've had Halloween, Terrible weather on 1st November, I've had major changes at work, everything happens at once doesn't it? Anyway, I have managed a journal page to enter for the Play Date Cafe . The colours this time were yellow, orange and chocolate or black. The stamp I used is a lovely one from Elusive Images, and I made my own masks with a die cut. I used Sticky Fingers and Glimmer Mist spray paints,and some yellow emulsion paint which I added with a noodle brush (silicone pastry brush!)then I added some leaves with distress ink and stuck the die cut leaves onto the page. The photo isn't brilliant I'm afraid, but here it is, I hope you like it:
