Red, White and Blue...

for this Men's card.
The girls at the card class are always asking for inspiration for Men's cards.I don't find them particularly troublesome...I just prefer making ¨pretty¨ cards.

I bought a piece of wrapping paper ages ago which had 3 images and this is one of them...sadly I have now used it all up but it lasted for ages, one of my crafting bargains I think!

I love motor bikes and have always regretted not having the spare cash to have one....but who knows what the future brings...I can't win the Lottery though because I don't do it.

On a more serious note it has been quite a hard week at the Reachout Centre...I did a home visit on Monday that was very is so sad seeing how people have to live when hard times prevent them from working etc. The poor man is collecting cardboard to take to a recycling centre to try and raise money to help provide for his baby who is waiting for an operation on its brain...sobering times. I thank God every day for His goodness and His compassion.
