365 Cards Days 159, 160 & 161 plus Dutch Dare -Lace

This really is a hasty catch up posting for the last three days' challenges from 365 Cards.
On Thursday I was in Bath as usual babysitting my granddaughter and yesterday was the funeral of our dear friend who died very suddenly from a heart attack a couple of weeks ago. It was a wonderful tribute to him, but a sad occasion nevertheless. What made it a little more difficult for us was that we (my husband and I) were asked to sing a duet during the service. Knowing how emotional I become at such times, this was quite a tall order, but we got the strength from somewhere or other and sang the blessing with clear voices.
Today my daughter and her family are here with us and this evening we are going to the wedding party of one of her dancing friends from when she was growing up. SO you can see the reason for my haste.
This is today's Challenge Cool Collage.
All a little rushed, but I hope you understand!

This is for Day 160 of 365 Cards -Lovely Lace, plus Lace for the Dutch Dare Challenge.

This is Day 159 Create a scene. I have made it into a new home or return home card.
I must go my granddaughteris yelling for some food! Needs must!
