Oh Shell I'm so sorry to hear that you're not well - crafting can take your mind off things but sometimes when the worry is just too much it just takes over - I've been there myself. It's easy to say don't worry - but don't - it desn't make things any better! Your card is just gorgeous and the glittery shoes were definitely the way to go - just fab. Look after yourself big hugs judith xx
