  • MBE card

    One of the other ladies at my needlework class was named in the New Year Honours, and had been awarded an MBE for services to foster care. Here is the card I made for her:

    I will find out on Monday if she likes it!

        I just read a story of a Coventry woman called Janet.

        If that's the lady you know she ought to get more than a medal.....better get making a Halo and Wings card, she sounds like a Saint!

          That's the one, we now just call her MBE! She was embarrassed at the doctors when over the tannoy they called out her name with MBE afterwards and the whole waiting room turned to get a look at her.

          Here's her story if anyone else wants a read:

            Yes, that's the article I saw. About time we saw some good news for a change!

            Lovely story and sad at times too.

              Love the card, she sounds like a very special woman.

              I love it that awards go to people like her.

                Yes, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make her a card. It's not everyday you know someone who has been given such an accolade.
