Your mojo definitely is fired up Karen, this is gorgeous. Love the colours you have chosen for you image and papers, they work so well together. Your mum will love it.
So sorry to hear about your problems, hope things change for the better really quickly. Let's hope the phrase when one door closes another one opens is what happens for your husband.
