Loft notice

CRX0006 square

Not everything has to be a card. I coloured this over a year ago, laminated it and stuck it up on the wall on the landing just above where things that need to be put in the loft tend to accumulate. Completely missing out the “take photos for the blog” stage.

So, a couple of days late, here is the card I made for Mothering Sunday for my mum.
