Trying to get back into things

For those who have followed my blog you will know from the previous post that my son was knocked down by a car. Very sadly David passed away on 4th July having made no recovery or responses, this has been the most traumatic and devastating time of my life and something l don't think l will ever come to terms with. We loved him with all our hearts and miss him every minute of the day and night. No one can ever know the pain and hurt unless they have lost a child themselves.

I have had some time crafting over the last week and here is a card l made for the Bah Humbug Challenge wk 29 - Beads ( if l can remember how to load it.)

Stamp - Penny Black / Fantasy

Embossed Fine White Detail powder

Pink Beads

Thank you for dropping by x Susan x

Oh dear Susan

I was dreading you posting this and I am so very sorry!!

I have called by your blog a few times in the hope of an up-date and because there wasn't one I guessed that things were not good.

My heart goes out to you .. .. this is every Mother's nightmare and dread.

It now feel pathetic to say how lovely your card is but I hope that your former love of crafting can help you during this awful, awful time.

Sending you love and cyber hugs

Susie this is my first visit to your blog (I think - I came to look at your entry to our challenge at Bah! Humbug! (which is beautiful), but ended up gutted by your post. My heart goes out to you. I just can't imagine the pain you must be in and can't find any words that may help.
All I can do is send a hug and some love.
Take care.
