Hi everyone!

I'm in for you today with a bit of a super special make for me because Maurie drew this image for me. My Grandad had a car accident last year and has been quite poorly since so I wanted to make him a super special card to let him know how special he is to me.

My Grandad breeds and races pigeons and I asked Maurie if she could draw me a senior man with pigeons and oh boy did she deliver, I just absolutely love him. So click on the piccy below to pop into the store and get him for yourself, he is just magic.

So I went with a little 'hello' kinda card because they are always the loveliest when you are not expecting anything in the mail. It was such a welcome escape from feeling a bit rough from chemo today.

So on thursday I was 40! and I had my Picc Line fitted at 9am in the morning for a present! lol!! there I was in my pretty birthday Calvin Klein dress getting all kitted out with a Powerpicc solo 2 catheter!!! I know how to rock a birthday right?!!!

Now, I've got to be honest and say I'm finding it kinda tricky to get used to but it did make chemo a lot easier on friday as we didn't have the whole try and find a vein trauma to go through so that was a lovely bonus!!

Right. I am going to attempt to do a little bit of gardening now, just a teeny bit. I bought 3 lavenders and some trailing lobelia from the car boot sale this morning so I want to get them in to catch the rain that looks like it is going to happen soon!!

Huge hugs and thank you for popping in, Lou xxxx


  1. Hello lovely, brave lady, hope your feeling fine now....This card you made for your grandad is wonderful bet he will just adore it....take care.c

  2. Beyond gorgeous Lou! Maurie is amazing! That is such a gorgeous and super special image. I bet your granddad loved it to bits on his gorgeous card. Fab design hunny and the hello sentiment is fab and just perfect! Love that you had your PICC line fitted in your party dress! You don't miss a beat babes, it's such a great way to be!! Hope you're not feeling too rough post chemo and that you get the lobelia and lavender planted before the rain comes! Big hugs, Wends xoxo

  3. Wow he's great what a great way to say love you
    Lou I am totally in awe of your strength through all this wishing you well sending love x

  4. I've never heard of anyone racing pigeons before. How interesting. Do they have names? I expect them to have lovely names. What a great card you made for him. Love the pigeon paper. How perfect.

    Happy 40th birthday. Some days you gotta rock what you got. And you do look lovely.
