Tears and Xmas

Hi guys,before I post my creations,I just wanted to let you all know that my daughters wedding is off,cant go into detail encase a certain someone reads my blog.
But Lisa is now home,brocken hearted and to be honest I am in bits,too finding it so hard to cope with it all,niether of us saw this coming so my house is stacked with all Lisa's stuff furniture and she has taken over my craft room as its the biggest room in the house.
I just do not know why there are such nasty rotten people out there who can hurt her like this,you could not get anyone more loyal hardworking or loving than Lisa and it has brocken my heart to see her like this.
All I know is that it will take her a long time to ever trust anyone again,6 years gone in one heatbeat,I cant stop the tears either,this is so hard.
This is why I made this collage think it says it all really

I have also finally made another xmas card papers,sentiment,baubles hunky dory added some adhesive gem stones,and ribbon to finish.
Will add challenges later as now off to pick my sister in law up so she can help me try to move some furniture to make room for us to move take care everyone hugs cheryl.
Just also wanted to thank lots of my blogging buddies for there wonderful emails and support you have been a real help guys so thank you for that.

OH Cheryl, such sad news in this post. I do wish your daughter (and you) all the strength in the world to get over this! It's a cliche but....better now than many years (and children) later!!!

Big hug from Holland, Irene

Craftyanny said...

Lots of cyber hugs comming right at you and your daughter Cheryl. It'll take time but she will be a stronger person in the end. With her Mum at her side she'll get there. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Take care

Beverly said...

I'm sure there are lots of others like me who read your blog regularly but seldom post. So I want to say that we are thinking of you and Lisa and wishing your hearts a speedy recovery.

I find the expression "And this too shall pass" helpful in times of pain, disappointment...and also in the good times.

Brenda Brown said...

Just to let you know I am thinking of you both. I had something similar with my daughter (though not a wedding planned) and it hurts so deeply both for her and you as Mum. Your digital collage says it all and is very touching.
Take care and try to be strong.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Junibears said...

You are both in my thoughts and prayers dear heart. Remember that old saying, trite but true...
'This too shall pass'.
I've often told myself that, over and over again and eventually......you know my thoughts...
Fondest love

craftykitten said...

Oh Cheryl hun, I am so sorry to hear this news. It is always so difficult to comfort a daughter when they have their heart broken - I felt so helpless when it happened to my daughter - though thankfully not at the wedding stage she was totally devastated and it broke my heart to see her hurting so. All I can say is it will get easier, I know it's a cliche but it is true. Do give her a hug from me and reassure her that there will be a Mr Right out there somewhere.
On to your artwork - a shame it has come from something so sad but a joy to look at all the same. The colours are stunning and the layout is gorgeous. I love your Christmas Card too, such lovely colours again.
Take care of each other.
Big hugs
Dawn xx

Kathleen said...

Hi Cheryl, so sorry to hear your news, my thoughts are with you and your daughter, it will get easier and Mr Right is out there and when the time is right everything will slot into place. I know both of you feel your world is upside down at the moment but I believe these things are sent to try us and eventually make us a stronger person.
Your creation is beautiful and very heartfelt,
Bug(!!) hugs Kat xx

Rebekah said...

OMG Cheryl I am so sorry for both you and Lisa I can only imagine how bad you must be feeling seeing her hurt so as a mum of 2 daughters I cannot imagine seeing them go through hat pain just yet. I really feel for you both what an awful thing to go through, atleast she has you for support, she must be truely devastated. This will be a blessing in disguise in the end, someday she will look back and see that all of this has made her a stronger person and she will be with someone who really does love and appreciate her. Love and hugs to you both Rebekah xx

Aww Cheryl, my heart aches for you just reading this!! I hate seeing my daughter upset about anything - is worse than being upset myself! and how can you comfort them - is awful. All I can say is that time is a healer with anything like this. You don't forget but it gets a little easier every week that goes by. We are all with you as you go through this awful time.
Love your digital art - it is so poignant! and your Christmas Card is gorgeous hun, love the baubles and ribbons.

Kat said...

So sorry to hear about Lisa. But at least she wasn't tied to the guy and there aren't innocent children involved. Of course Lisa's heartbroken and you're understandably upset too but I'm sure she can count on her lovely Mum for lots of love and support.

Love your artwork Cheryl, as you say it says it all. Great Christmas card too, very elegant.

Take care,

Kat xx

Lorraine said...

Oh Cheryl, my heart is breaking for you & your daughter. But god must have a MUCH better plan for her. And I'm glad she found out sooner rather than after she was married. Will keep you & your family in my prayers - that you can find some peace soon. Oh and your creations are GORGEOUS as always! So love the details in your creations.

Dora said...

OMG Cheryl, I am so so sorry to be reading this, my heart goes out to you both. This will be a hard time for you both but I'm sure this is better than getting married and splitting up afterwards. .. Love your creations today, both so stunning.

I am so sorry to hear this news - as your art work says, let the tears come, better to let it out than hold onto grief and it go deeper inside. Although your artwork has come from a sad place it is beautiful.

Oh dearie me Cheryl. This is so distressing to read. Hope you and your daughter can eventually get over this huge disappointment and hurt. Time is a wonderful healer, I know from past experience.
