Thank you

Hi folks, you know who you are out there. I want to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart for your lovely postive thought and prayers to get me through today. I had my results today after a very long wait. I have two different cancers going on in my breast. I am now waiting for my appointment to go in which could be as soon as two weeks but no longer than 3 weeks, they said. I will be having a mastecomy and my lymph glands out. I will then need chemotherapy and also radiotherapy, as I have a 6cm lump near my chest wall. They are saying I will be off work for at least 6 months.
I am going back to work tomorrow. I will try and post a card soon. Thank you again. Happy crafting Hugs x ChrisB

The other is for the Bah humbug challenge  which this week is Rudolph or reindeer.

I have used a decoupage sheet I have had years. Hope you like him I think he's quite cute.  Thanks for dropping by. Happy crafting and Hugs to you all.  x ChrisB

Bah humbug -swirls and flourishes

Hi everyone this is a hard post for me today. It as been my birthday today, but yesterday I was at the hospital having 6 Biopsys taken on my right breast. I have two lumps and a lump in my lymph glands. I have to go back next Monday to hear what cancer it is and what stage it is at and what my chances  are. To know that you are thinking of me would be a great support.
I have made my card for the Bah humbug challenge which this week is swirls and flourishes. Thanks you for dropping by. Hugs to you all x ChrisB

Bah Humbug- paper weaving.

I can't believe it's Wednesday again so soon.  This week at Bah Humbug the challenge is for paper weaving. I've never done this before. But will try it again I think. Haven't been able to do any stamping so I used a freebie set. My Minds eye papers and chipboards free from a magazine. Not totally happy with this card, but not got time to make another. I like the colours of the papers. Thanks for dropping by. Happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB

Bah humbug-xmas sentiments

Hi folks back again for my second post of the evening. I decided I'd better have a play and do my card for this weeks challenge at Bah Humbug. It is Xmas sentiments/text. I have used a Clarity stamp that I have had years and only used once or twice before. My Image stamp is a Docraft stamp from a few years ago . I embossed a star around the image and used a quickie glue pen and added some glitter. It doesn't show up properly on my photo. Also my text is straight, it is just the wonky angle I took my photo. I also added a white ribbon and bow to complete the card.

I'ts a goal

Hi, I'm a bit under the weather at the moment with a bad cough. I went to the Manchester Show on Saturday with 4 friends, this year it was at Event City next to the Trafford Centre. I bet they were sick of me I coughed all day long. I surpose I shouldn't have gone, but I had paid for my coach and ticket and didn't want to waste the money. I got a few things including some tree stencils which were really lovely. I also got a few stamps and some white scalloped cards.
The card I'm showing was made for a neighbour for her great Grandson, he's 7 next week. He's Mad on Bolton Wanders Football team he was even Christened in their strip as a baby. I have borrowed a stamp from my friend by Katy Sue Designs. I'm hoping he likes it I was quite pleased with how it turned out. Although my OH said "why have you put a number three on it.?"
Happy crafting Hugs x ChrisB
