First of all Tracey, I am so sorry to hear of your son Ben's illness, and the rotten timing of it all. How heartbreaking it must be for all of you. Prayers for you and Ben! Secondly, as always, love your cards and how fresh and cheery they look. Super sweet!

Sylvia said...

Love your butterfly card, Tracey, but both cards are lovely! Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ and sharing your cards.

Vicky Hayes said...

These are gorgeous Tracey! I especially like the first - I do love a one-layer card! So sorry to hear your son has been unable to join his friends on the London trip, he must feel so disappointed.

Pauline said...

Tracey these are beautiful cards, so fresh and springlike!
So sorry to hear that your son is ill and has to miss his tour of Europe, that must be so hard for him.
My husband had the same illness at the same age as your son, and I remember how ill he was with it, so you have made the right decision. I hope his recovery is swift, and starts to feel better soon.

Arlene said...

Love both of these cards Tracey. The first is my favorite...it's perfect. :)

Mara Campbell said...

You did a great job with those colors!! I love the stamped butterflies on the first card and love the fence and easter eggs on the 2nd!

Kathy Mc said...

Tracey, both cards are very striking, and your grass along the fence with the colored eggs is adorable. So sorry to read that Ben is still under the weather and missing the London trip. Praying for his health and strength to return soon!

Marybeth said...

Glad Ben is feeling better, but I am so sorry that he did not get to go. I know the feeling of your heartache ....a mothers love! Your cards are beautiful! I love the little eggs laying near the fence, just adorable! Prayers for a quick recovery!
