Happy News!

Hello friends

See that smile....that's a clear MRI scan smile!
He does look tired, that's because he had to get up early - we had the pleasure of the M25 first thing!
It isn't until you hear the good news you realise that you've been holding your breath for 
what feels like weeks!  Another scan in April and just a few hospital visits in between
so we feel like we are truly getting back to normal now.
Thank you for all your good wishes - they really help.

How about something crafty now!
I'm still sharing the projects made for Let's Make Christmas Cards magazine featuring
the rather unconventional lilac and mauve papers.
I know the colours are not everyone's cup of tea but you can always
adopt the idea with traditional reds and greens.
Create A Flake Five and Layered Poinsettia (of course!) are featured.

Looks like vinyl and rugs for the woodland cabin, a definite winning choice.
Going shopping at the weekend to pick those out.

Take care friends - did you hear about the possible heat-wave?

Good morning Christine

Very pretty Christmas card - I like the non traditional colours.

Hello Christine
So pleased Elliott had the all clear!
Up early waiting for a new Dryer, mine died yesterday aged 25 yrs....that is so good, but makes you complacent that its always going to heat up, which it didn't !on a wet day with two loads to dry!
Anyway... lovely picture of the McDonald and the smiling face Elliott!
Love the card too!
Take care
Love Marg

Brillant news!

I like liacs/light blues and white with atouch of glitter on Christmas cards, they remind me of crisp frosty mornings. JuliaT x

The papers are different for Christmas aren't they, lovely pretty card.

No I hadn't heard about a heatwave. Bring it on, and may it last until April!!!(I don't like the cold)
Take care.

Afternoon Christine, Absolutely FABULOUS news !! I was so, so, happy to read that Elliott's MRI scan was clear. It must have been traumatic for you all. Elliott does look tired, but hopefully the McD's made up for the early start haha.
Your card is beautiful, gorgeous colours and lovely compilation.
I'm hoping they are right with the weather forecast, I'm sick of this rain haha, I did notice that it was a lot warmer in bed last night, than it has been of late, bring it on I say !!
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Janice said...

Hi Christine
So pleased to see the fantastic news on FB yesterday and here today! What a relief for everyone and so nice to see things being able to return to normality.
Pretty card today which as you say, can so easily be adapted in traditional Christmas colours.
Lovely day today so far, hope it continues.

Bea said...

Hi Chrisitne - so happy for you all that the news is good. Lovely card

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christine
Good news regarding Elliot. He'll be able to start getting back to a normalise life now won't he. I say normalise as he has a few more hospital visits etc to endure. But he's well on the way now.
Flooring shopping for you now, I assume neither Mitchell one Elliot will want to go with you. I can hear them now saying boring boring boring.

SusanP, Kent said...

Brilliant news on the scan! So pleased for you all especially Elliott of course.
I like these colours for a festive card - never been keen on the traditional red/green combo.
Hope you find something lovely for your cabin at the weekend.
I fear the aforementioned heatwave comes with a sting in its tail i.e. More rain.

Elaine said...

I am overjoyed for you and Elliott ! Its fantastic news , must be a huge relief xx
