I believe

This weeks prompt is I believe, what do you believe in big or small. well I believe in love at first sight true of the first time I saw my darling hubby, the day they handed me my new born son and the day they handed me my new born daughther. I instantly fell in love with them all, last but not least our is our beautiful rescue dog Frankie, we fell in love with a photo and then had an anxious week waiting to see if he was ours. A year on he fills our heart with more and more love each day. I definitely believe in love at first sight.

My Initial

This weeks prompt (week 11) was your initial well heres mine never did like my name when I was growing up, although it has grown on me in recent years. No one really calls me Valerie mostly it's Val. The old ladies and gents I look after all like to call me valerie for some reason they can't understand the concept of Val. Doing some research on the internet I discovered that the latin of Valerie is strong and the french meaning is brave, there is a town called Valery in france and there is 1 Valerie with the same surname as me in the whole of the United States.

Note To Self

Can't believe we are at week ten already, this is really helping to look at my life in a different way. My first thought was to do a card about tidying my house creating an oasis of calm but that is something that will take nore than a week, so what I came up with was note to self "Take a minute to smell the roses." Some days like today my life is just one mad rush and I don't always notice the everyday miracles that surround us all the time. So my vow for this week is to take a few minutes to really see what is around me and try not to take life so much for granted.
The front of the card was made using foam shapes, glitter glue and a huge bit of bling.
