Creative Inspirations challenge

Morning Everyone, I hope your all doing ok and getting your fair share of this dreadful, cold, wet, windy weather we're having....well it's only fair to share...lol....Here's my card for the challenge this week, which is to use 2 images,I knew immediately which I would use, as I love these two and together, well they are fab.....I've only just thought, oh I hope digi images are allowed.....well whats done is done...sorry if I got this wrong...just don't count me in...lol..

Well I have to get sorted now to have my Grandson this afternoon, it's his last half day at school, next week they all go full time,we were all worried about Lucas, didn't think he would settle....think again, like a duck to water, Kaleb was never going to be a problem, but so glad they are ok......

Also anyone interested in AuntySue, just had an e-mail from Christine (Tilly)she has been visiting etc and she is still worried about Sue's condition,of course the state of our Hospitals does not help, short staffed etc; so if your that way inclined, and you do speak to the 'BIG ' guy, upstairs, will you put a word in for our sweet friend,think she could do with alittle help on the road to recovery.

Thanks so much for popping by, hope you like what you see and will come back soon, hugs, Janette.xxxxxx
