Thank You, Thank You

Hello friends
Today a Thank You, Thank You Card!
This card has just appeared on the Spellbinders®  Idea Gallery and it features 
the Enhancing Elements die - Gold Ovals One.
Teaming these dies with your classic Nestabilities® means you can layer up a card easily. 
In case you haven't seen it Spellbinders have created a 
Nestabilities Compatibility Chart - you can view it here.  This is so useful - 
I've printed it off to keep above my craft table - a great reference guide.
For the last day or so we have been to and fro The Royal Marsden and this 
afternoon we are at King's College Hospital.  Elliott has been seeing various 
psychologists and we have learned a great deal about breathing and relaxation 
techniques.  Truly hoping this is all going to help with his radiotherapy and anxiety.
(I can confirm the relaxation therapist was very good - 
I nearly nodded off when I should have been making notes!)

I will keep you posted when I can, my posts tend to pop up at different times at the moment, 
I grab a few minutes here and there to type one up.  As always thank you, thank you for 
your comments and messages - I'm a little delayed in replying but I will get there :)

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. I just want to say pretty much the the same as Elizabeth. We went to Canada a few years ago and I got a plaque, which is now hanging on our kitchen door, that says
You are doing exactly that, and we all totally understand and would do the same, nothing is more important than family! Just remember that we are all thinking of you and your family, and are here whenever you have time/feel like blogging. Take care

Morning Christine, Loving the card and thank you for the heads-up on the compatibility chart. I have just printed it off too, I decided to print off double sided as there is 9 sheets, it is the first time I have printed this way, it printed off every alternate number, then laptop showed me how to remove and re-insert, and guess what !! the second side is the other way up ha ha. When I'm referring to it, my head will be going up and down ha ha.
I think I could do with some of that relaxation technique too, here's hoping this will help Elliott to cope with the mask work. It must be so, so, tiring for you all with all these hospital visits, but in the end it will all be worth the stress, when Elliott is brought back to full health. I look forward to that day. Huge hugs to you all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine. What a tiring stressful time you are going through. When all this is finished and Elliot is back to full health a wonderful relaxing holiday is compulsory.

Lovely card, Christine. I really don't know how you cram it all in. I hope you'll all be able to relax a bit over the weekend (put all those techniques to good use) and that Elliott will soon be ok with the radiotherapy.
Best wishes, Rose
