It's good to be back

Hi everyone I hope all is well with you all and it's good to be back in blog land again.

I am now back home after my travels in the UK, first my news, Brain and I went to see the specialist and we got good news (about time too) his cancer has stabilized for the time being that’s really good news that we needed, he still has to have therapy but it seems to be working this time and if all goes ok he does not have to see him again until next year.

He will be monitored here in Bahrain for any changes, so darn happy things have finally changed direction and fingers crossed it stays that way, all we have to do now is get some weight on him as he lost 23 kilos, so out come the yummy cakes.

Our son’s wedding went great and I will post some pictures later, we all had a good time and to see all the family and friends again was fantastic, oh plenty of bubbly too.


I did lots of shopping with my friend who we stay with and she even took me to the Ally Pally for the craft fair, ohh spent far too much there but it was so tempting so I gave into my temptation, as you do, now this does not take a lot for me to give in lol I have the will power of a jelly fish as DH would say, all I can say is good job we had a good baggage allowance :-) 80 kilo all together and I had 79 of it lol, I so loved that day.

More of my antics later in the week so now onto my card, I have been making cards for a Breast Cancer coffee morning that my friend is holding on Sunday
and this is one of them using my new stamp from LOTV and coloured with promarkers my new best friends.



The inside I have used a new MS punch, love this punch.





I have entered into some challenges:

Papertake – Sketch

Creative Card Crew – Flowers

Cup Cake – Pink and Brown

Stamp Something – Celebrate


Thanks for popping I do appreciate your visits, I will see you all later as I have a lot of catching up to do with my blog hopping.

Hugs

Hi Linda

Wonderful to hear some good news from you - what a relief for you both.
Gorgeous card too and by the way - do crafters have any self restraint where goodies and stash are concerned - no I don't think so!!!! You deserve to treat yourself hun.

Welcome back! I have really, really missed you. I am so happy to hear that you and Brian finally got some GOOD news! You card is gorgeous and for a cause that is near and dear to my heart as my sister just made her 5yr breast cancer survivor anniversary! Tell Brian to eat all the cakes and sweets for me that I cannot eat anymore! That will fatten him up in no time at all.
Hugs,
Sally
PS..Glad you got to treat yourself to some crafting goodies.
