Red Meant to Be

As I write this, one of our sons is hopefully about to sail from Dover – 3 hours late – due to the Channel being closed last night.  Tomorrow he will be driving through France, to stay with us for a week.  He is bringing his little daughter, who will have her first skiing lessons on the slopes of Mont D’Or, which is about 2 hours from here.  I can’t wait to see them both again.

This is the second card using red I have made recently – a colour I wasn’t too fond of – but I’m really getting to like it now.
