Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Crafty Boots - Babies

This fortnight's challenge over at Crafty Boots is Babies, chosen by the lovely Kerry.  This theme is so important and I ask you all to pop over and read the story behind the theme choice. Kerry and her partner tragically lost their baby daughter, Rhianna Lily, but because of rules and red tape they can not register her birth nor death. There is a link on the challenge site for a petition to get this changed and I kindly ask you all to read the story and then please sign it. Thank You. 

Right onto my DT project - 




I made a framed card using images from the Beatrix Potter CD-ROM. I chose this lovely image as I thought it could be used for a boy or a girl or indeed multiple births for twins etc. At present I've left it plain, but I could add letters to it to spell out a baby's name to personalise it. I could add ribbon to it to make it hangable. 

I really enjoyed putting this together so I hope you all like it.

You'll all be pleased to know I'm feeling a bit better and now am on new medication which so far seems to be helping. Fingers crossed that it continues. 

Take care and I'd love to hear if you do indeed read Kerry's story and sign the petition. It means a lot to us DT girls to support Kerry and her partner in this.

Ha, ha. I wondered why I couldn't find your card this morning.

This is a really lovely card, such an unusual shape and a sweet image. I have never tried making a frame card, but I have this CD, so perhaps I will have a go.

Really pleased to hear how well you are doing.

Gorgeous card and I'm glad your meds are working. I've signed the petition, I lost a baby at 12 weeks and another at 6 and can't imagine what it must be like to go through a still birth. xx
