Back in Bahrain

Hi Everyone I hope all is going great with you all, things on my home front, I am back in Bahrain for a little while as I have things to take care of here, unfortunately Brian was not well enough to join me and he has his next specialist appointment soon and then his chemotherapy.
He is progressing very well and getting better everyday that passes, it does feel a little strange not being with him and I do worry but I have left him in my friend’s capable hands and they will look after him well, I could not have got this far without them, they have been a blessing.

So I am back in the house and all is very quiet and I have been very lucky at this end too as my friend here has been looking after my house and it is spotless so I had nothing to do when I got here.

I got straight to work and made her this card today to say thank you and got her some champagne, chocs and some flowers to go with it.

The inside of my card I made pockets so I can add a gift voucher and a message.

OOH I missed my craft room and it all came flooding back to me and so I went in search of some challenges, I have not entered a challenge since April but I soon got back into it, plus I had all my lovely goodies I brought back from the UK to play with.

The challenges

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

Character Cafe - Pocket Card

Lili of the Vally - Sketch

CraftCaz - Summer Time

Stamp Something - Flowery

I shall leave you now as I am going to visit a few blogs and check out what you have been up to while I have been away.
