Been Through some tough times....

I have been through some tough times,
remembering some losses that have had a
large effect on me. I have been very low.
Plus feeling that I had let my son and his friends
down by having to cancel the party etc...
I know its not my fault we got ill, but you do put
yourself through so many thoughts of how
you could have avoided being ill....
Any way, I count my blessings, I have my wonderful
children and family. Plus some fantastic friends who
have been with me through thick and thin.
On a positive... I am feeling brighter, even though crafting
is not high on the list yet!
My family spent Saturday evening with us to bring gifts for Taylor,
and see him for his Birthday, only a week later!
I have sent out Party Invitations again for
Saturday the 3rd May. This means Taylors birthday
is lasting 3 weekends!
Lets hope all goes well this time.
Thank you Everyone for taking time to give me messages and support.
It means the world to me.

It's been a NIGHTMARE!

Its been a NIGHTMARE!!
First of all, my baby girl got sick 4pm Thursday night... Bad Sickness bug...
I HAD to cancel my son's birthday party.... its still on hold!
Thursday, Friday & Saturday nursing poor poor baby girl.... so sick!
Sunday Taylors Birthday, he had a lovely day loved his gifts, No Family
couldn't risk passing on bug... little cake just the 4 of us.
Sunday 4pm I had to go to bed... I got hit big time by the bug!
To say it was hell is an understatement!
I now feel like I have been stamped on by a herd of elephants!
Not the weekend I had planned for my childs birthday.
My family will visit as soon as we are all clear... maybe nxt week
I just hope that Taylor and Steve don't come down with it now...
one more day and we will know ( seems to take 3days!)
I am back off to bed soon for the night.

I must be CRAZY!!

I must be totally mad!!! Crazy and everything else!!
I have suddenly decided to do a party for my son.
His birthday is on the 20th.
I am doing the party the day before at home! AHHHHHH!

I have designed the invitations on the computer,
for ease and speed! Lazy I know being a card maker.

But time is really against me.... I must be mad but really excited!
He has decided on 10 friends from school and his 4 cousins
plus his sister.

Wish me luck!

No Challenges this time!

For once the cards are not challenge related!
I just had to make these for people.
A simple anniversary card.
A card for a very special friend,
she asked for fairies!
The top message on this card slides,
though its not as neat I would have liked it!
It did work.
