Long time no see!!

Hi lovely Crafty friends,

How are you all doing? Loving these sunny days, whether it's warm or not!

It's time I bit the bullet and share with you where I've been. As you all know when I last blogged in February I was undergoing a lot of tests and ill health. I kept filling up with fluid in my tummy which made me look 8 months pregnant. My wonderful GP was concerned that I could have a blood clot due to my chest pains that he wanted me admitted for tests. I wouldn't go that night but went the following day. I was told that day that I had Ovarian Cancer.I've undergone a full hysterectomy, appendix removed, a general good clear out. 

I am one lucky lady as they removed all the cancer and it hasn't spread - phew. We've had many sleepless nights waiting for results, but now we are on the next step of the journey.

I start chemo next week for 6 sessions. 1 treatment every 3 weeks. I'll lose my hair and go through many symptoms but I am here, a tough cookie and so very lucky. I'd like to thank you all for your continued love and support. 

I'd like to share with you a card I put together a month or so ago for a good friend of mine.Hubby had to be my Ebosser apprentice.... ha ha... Poor fella has had to take over so many household tasks.I couldn't have done so well without him, my daughter, my family and very close friends.Thank you...

I used a Crafter's Companion die that I won a while back, twine, charm and gems.


Apologies for not being able to leave you comments at the moment but I will still pop around for a peek when I can.

Thanks for popping by to see me and for being patient with me.

Hugs Debs x
