I am Back

Hi guys guess whos back in town,yep me. Oh its been so hard without my computer but now I have a nice new one trying to get used to the new windows,7 luckily Dareen,saved all my stuff for me even my favourites,DT images,everything bless him how good was he. It was so difficult for him as obviously my computer would not start up with no motherboard but he did it for me.
Well Saturday we were up at 6am getting all the rest of Lisa's things together her fiance,arrived at 9am,with a truck to take the bed,and bedroom furniture and things.
Lisa went with him to get the soffa,washing machine,and I stayed and packed the rest of the things into her car and mine. Then off we went to the new flat which is extremly nice perfect for them both as there first new home.
Took all day to unload and clean,too then it was time to say goodbye huge Hug from Lisa and phil,I kept back the tears,too untill I got home went into her room,and the emptiness just took over I sat on the floor and wept buckets,gosh what a lot of emotions,i have gone through this week its been like someone has ripped my heart out.
Anyway she is gone,and I am still here at least I have my computer and you guys who I must say have been brilliant,gosh guys I have been overwhelmed at the lovely comments you have left me and all the emails I have received too.
Taken me a while to get through them all but its all done,bless your hearts,for staying with me You have no idea how much I appreciate it.
Right crafting been doing a bit he he well a lot plus the house is super clean too now. This is a tag I did for the lovely lindas challenge last week obviuosly I could not post it but thought I would show it anyway it was the mask techinique. The flower i have made myself from Grunge paper
This was my pixie card for last weeks challenge too which I could not post either,so hope you like it.

Finally another canvas I have created,using Tims,stamps tissue paper other bits and pieces,including using some black paint,around the frame,which I have then taken my tweezers,to make marks in whilst the paint was still wet to create a texture hope you can see it. This canvas I have called Family
Thanks guys once again you really are all such stars,oh and the new followers,too
Julie,Craftyamy,Daisychain,and jo Thomas welcome guys to me wee blog hugs cheryl x
just another massive thanks to my dear buddie Sarah bless you hun for the lovely chats we had he he now we have the voices to the pictures of us he he love ya hun.
Oh I also got an award from the sisters challenge blog my card was one of the shining stars,it was the pixie cottage card with the wee fellow fishing,so thanks for that too guys for picking out my card,the star is on my side bar.

Chris said...

Dear Cheryl,
I am glad you are back! It must be a huge adjustment having your best friend and daughter leave the nest. Time will heal. She will always love you and you her. Love what you've made. I would love you to make a tutorial on that flower you make. My sage wisdom says fill up Lisa's room with a craft studio. Won't seem so lonely then.
Big Hugs, Chris

Hi, Cheryl! Welcome back!! So glad you're all set up with a new computer and how lucky for you that all your files were saved! That's wonderful! Here's a *big hug* for making it through Saturday.
