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


  1. Oh Chris, what a worrying time for you (I know what you're going through) Thinking of you and sending positive thoughts and big hugs.
    Your card is lovely :)

    Much much Love Suzi B xx

  2. Lovely card for the challenge. I'm thinking of you and sending positive vibes.

    I'm still going to say Happy Birthday, you must be worried sick but enjoy the positive

  5. Chris, first of all, Happy Birthday! It is a celebration of your life. Secondly, my prayers are that all turns out on the positive side and that you are telling us on your next birthday that you are cancer-free and feeling great for many more years to come. And in the midst of all of this, you make this gorgeous card! Hang in there, girl, we are with you! Thanks for joining us this week at Bah! Humbug!

  6. Oh Chris, thankyou for leaving that comment to let me know. What scary news to receive any time let alone on your birthday of all days. Please if you have a minute let me have your address too, either an email or leave a message for me on the CB forum.

    You are obviously a lady of strength of character to have made such a beautiful card even though you had this worry on your mind. I will be thinking of you and sending all the positive vibes I can muster that the news you get on Monday is positive too. Chin up Sweetie!

    Sending all my love

  10. Oh Chris ... sorry to be so late visiting your beautiful card for our flourish challenge but things have been really hectic at home the last few weeks.
    Two of my friends are going through exactly the same as you although they are obviously at different stages in their treatment. Will be thinking about you and hoping you will soon be well again. Take care and think positive thoughts 'cos it really does help.
    Sending ((((HUGS))))
