Something a bit different...

Hi Lovelies, I hope some of you are getting some good weather, it was lovely here yesterday, gorgeous and sunny for a change. Wont last though! lol
I have a card to share with you today which is a bit different for me. Different as in the shape isn't square and less embellies on it, I am not sure if I like it or not?
I love the image, but I am not sure its 'me'. 
I am having a bit of a problem as my mojo has gone on holiday! and nothing seems to be turning out the way I want. I think its probably got a lot to do with the fact it is getting close to Charlie's birthday and I am just not feeling like crafting. I will be doing my usual of releasing some balloons for him to wish him a happy birthday, he would have been 12 on the 24th July. Its an emotional day, but I will be thinking of good memories and having a good look through all the photos I have of him and some video too. 
So if I am not around much in the next week, you will know why.

But anyway, let me show you this card, and give me your honest opinion please!

hmmmm still not sure!

Thank you for sharing your feelings with us, I cant imagine the pain you must feel, but it is good to share it with others and I love that you realease the ballons, thats such a beautiful gesture to your love for Charlie.

God bless you during the next week, and always,

Hi Lovely! You've done so many wonderful creations since I last have been here. I guess you won't mind when I don't comment on them all, I'm so behind with my commenting!
I just love this card, it's different from your style but still I can see Kat in it! I like it a lot.
Regarding Charlie: you are so honoured to have lovely memories and it must be so hard for yoo on his b-day. He will look down from heaven and will tell you that he has the best Mum ever!!
I will think of you on Tuesday! Biggest of hugs, Alessandra

Hi Kat, am finally starting to catch up on my personal commenting, having got all my DT ones done.

So sorry I've not been by for ages (again!!) it's been really busy here with the school holidays coming up - now they are here it's going to be even worse for finding card and surf time. But then you know exactly what I mean - hope your lot are enjoying their summer hols.

Gorgeous cards - as always, when are your cards ever less than perfect - and love the wall hanging you made for your teamie.

This card is just perfect too, less embellished than your usual, but still love it! You've got such an eye for colour and the layout is fab.

Can't even imagine the pain you must go through every year at this time - will be thinking of you.

Will come back soon,

YOur card is fab Kat, I don't think it needs anynore than you have given it and I love that image too - I need a fan following me around lately!

Beautiful gesture to release balloons for Charlie, it sounds to me that he was a lucky little man to have been loved so much in his short life and you did that! I will be thinking of you on the 24th
