Hello to you ..and you.. and , oh course,  you too .
Welcome to my room where I am happy to see frequent, / new visitors and followers any time .

Today , Monday , is a particularly sad day as I begin my Make it Monday  DT post .
Family , home duties and work , along with taking a hands on approach to her children's  after school sports and other activities has meant that our fabulous leader /owner of Make it Monday Linky Party has decided to close the blog for a while .
   Besides being on the  DT,  I  am Michelle's Mum so you will understand that I feel doubly  sad for Michelle . I know that Michelle absolutely loved providing a venue for everyone and anyone to share their paper craft projects and encouraged us all to try to give freely,  blog love,  in the form of comments . Michelle always made the DT feel that this was all about fun , enjoying the sharing of ideas , the encouragement and inspiration .So when "family stuff" came about and we could not join in , she always understood.
I hope that you will visit the Make it Monday blog  to  say good bye .I am sure that Michelle will appreciate that .
But for now , the last Make it Monday Party # 182 is up and running and here is my DT card

                            Using an image supplied by our sponsor

Thanks also to all the fabulous entrants .You made the blog the most  amazing success .
Now for my POTW ..Babs # 228

Well how to close off today usual I guess.

   Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne

Your wish card is delightful Shirley, cute image and love the little banner. Sort of snaps with your POTW, I chose Bab's entry #229 another marvellous creation by her.
Thanks for throwing my name in the hat for the MIM team. I've really enjoyed being part of Michelle's gang and the atmosphere of the Linky Party.

Hi Mum. Yes I am very sad about closing up the MIM blog. It was wonderful to be able to share it with you. Maybe in the future we will be able to revive the linky party should knows ........

I love you gorgeous card and the way you have coloured this sweet image.

Your card is just so sweet Shirley-Anne, I am really sorry to hear MIM is closing for a while, sometimes life does just get in the way I am sure a lot of people can relate to it.

Michelle has made MIM such an amazing success but she deserves less hassle, I'm sure you'll agree, Shirley-Anne! I'm hoping she will open it up again one day!

I love your card - so sweet and very clever how you did the wording!
