Mail it

Hi guys before I tell you about this weeks challenge I have a big apology to make,to all my followers.
Firstly I have left crafty-emblies,due to personal reasons,but am hoping to stay with the other DT's I am on,if they will still have me.
My wee Alfie has been really sick,he had to have an operation,on his ear,as it nearly burst,then he had a terrible re action to the medication they put him on. So I spent many worrying nights sitting up with him,then again I had to take him back to the vets,this weekend as still not right. But hopefully now,they have sorted him out,he is still on medication.
Then I have a had some family issue's to deal with too,then the wedding,and I have not been feeling to great either just so tired all the time,which is really upsetting me sleeping like I do.
But the one good thing that has happened is that I am having a brand new kitchen after 30 years wooooooooooooo
so cannot wait for the new,kitchen flooring,tiles,new cooker washing machine fridge,window,the lot.
So that is keeping me,going for now.
Right so there you have it my sincere apologies to all of you that are kind enough to follow me,and leave me a comment,you guys have no idea how much this is helping at the moment.

so over at Anything goes this week the theme is MAIL IT
This is what I came up with using papers from a Kan ban kit I bought,

I also did some colouring in,too,which helped to take my mind of some stuff,an image I have had for ages now,so here is that too,xx

so that is it from me today guys take care and I really hope to see you all very soon,all my love Cherylx

ps do not forget about the mail it challenge which is HERE

Gorgeous cards Cheryl. Love your colouring in the second one. Loving the flowers.

So sorry to hear about poor Alfie. You feel so helpless when a beloved pet's ill and there's nothing you can do. Hope he's on the mend now, he's such a sweet wee doggie.

Good news about your kitchen. Hope you let us see it when it's all finished.

Thanks for your visit to my blog and your lovely comments.

Take care,

Kat xx

Lindsay xx

Stamping in Pink said...

Both are gorgeous Cheryl, I love the lovely soft colours you've used on the first and your colouring and layout on the second is fabulous too!
Sorry to hear you are so rough right now, I really am hopeful that you will get back to a better normal soon. You must stop being so hard on yourself - we're all here for you if you need to talk. It's awful when a loved pet is ill because you can see they are in pain and just can't do much to help - it tears my heart out when my wee doggy has stomach ache or an ear infection. A new kitchen, would so love one of those lol!
If you need my email again Cheryl let me know, I'm always happy to converse via email! Big hugs my lovely friend Karen xx

Jackie said...

Such a beautiful card, Cheryl, and I love your colouring. It looks so professional.
Hope you are feeling better soon and that Alfie makes a quick recovery. Jx

Judy Murphy said...

Hi Cheryl. Sorry to hear you're having a rough time. Hope it calms down soon and that Alfie is recovering.
I love the soft muted feel of your card. Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers and love how you've used the Kanban kit so cleverly.
Enjoy planning your new kitchen too. Hugs Jude x


Cheryl - it was so good to hear from you the other day, and I'm pleased you are crafting and blogging, even though you are still going through a rough time.
So sorry to hear about Alfie - I hope he is soon feeling better.
Your cards are fabulous Cheryl - just as they always are. Love your colouring on the second one - it really is therapeutic to sit and "colour-in" isn't it. What a stunning flower spray too.
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
