Apparently it is supposed to brighten up for the rest of the week - fingers crossed!
Tonight I have made a retirement card for a family friend whose party we are going to at the weekend. As Shabby Chic seems to be a big trend at the moment I thought I would have a go at combining this with the masculine feel. This also sits well with my facebook challenge of Leather, as this is a big part of a masculine shabby chic look.
Here is the card:

Audio Book Review
Shamrock Green by Jessica Stirling
Set in Ireland during the First World War and the Irish revolution, this story focuses on the lives of one family. Separated initially by their differing views of the rebellion, which causes the Scottish wife to be unfaithful to her husband, and then by the war, as the Irish husband joins the local regiment. Through ups and downs the family finally comes back together, but not to the unit they once were.
This is a captivating book to listen to. Very well read, and written, it constantly has you gripped and wanting to know where they go next and if they will get what they need to make them happy. I would recommend this book!
