CSAYL wk 34

Here l am late again with this weeks challenge over at Christmas Stampin All Year Long, we are on week 34 and this weeks challenge is Circles - you can check out the challenge here.  We are sponsored by Meljen Designs who have a wonderful range of Digi images and one lucky winner has the chance to win 4 images - pop over and see what the rest of the DT have been up to. The challenge runs until 1st November.

Coloured with copics 

Can you believe l have been over to Lili of the Valleys open day this afternoon and walked out emptied handed.... l should not have gone as my head is in a very dark place at the moment so if l don;t get around to visiting you all please forgive me.
Yesterday l had to do a first aid course as my certificate is out of date - l had to walk out of the room when they had the dummy on the floor to practice CPR on as all l could see was my son lying on the road unresponsive after he was hit by a car - they came out and told me that part of the course was over and they were moving onto bumps, cuts and grazes  and bandages..... when l went in they started talking about bumps to the head and cerebal fluid = what it looks like and where it could leak from..... when your son has died from serious head injuries after battling for 12 weeks you do not want to hear this - so that is me back to a big dark hole for l don't know how long again.  Sorry if l have upset anyone  l did not intend to.

Thinking of you as always - it must be so hard Susan and I can understand the first aid course being too much for you. Please grab a photo album and think of happier times - I know it's not that easy but it might help a little. Big hug, Jx

Love the greens on your lovely card.

A very beautiful card! Love the bow and the circular sentiment. So sorry to hear about your loss and that it was brought back to mind so dramatically.

Oh dear Susan, that really was the last thing you needed, I know it's only small consolation but your friends in blog land send you positive thoughts that you can take comfort from the good times.

Your card is quite delightful, the colours give it a lovely rustic feel.

Take care my friend,

Gorgeous Christmas card Susan. I love the little tree and lovely colours and bow too.

As a Mum, I can't begin to imagine how you must feel. All I can do is let you know you are in my thoughts and send you a Huge cyber hug.

Susan, you don't ever have to apologise for 'upsetting' anyone. I'm sure everyone thinks as I do; that you're entitled to be in a dark place and we can only imagine the pain you must still be feeling. I think you're incredibly brave.
Your card is beautiful as always.The tree image is lovely.

Hi Susan

Katina is right. You don't need to apologise to anyone.

You need lots of love and support and I am sure you will get it .. .. blogland is good at that.

I just can't image the torture you much go through every day. It isn't the sort of pain you can take a tablet for and make it go away!!

Sending you love and cyber hugs

p.s. Love your little Christmas tree xx
