Forever Friends

Donna Stitchy Bear 006

Hey, how’s it going? Sorry I haven’t been around much, I’ve had a very busy week, two weeks in fact, but we’re starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. The short version is, Grandson (6 yrs) was taken into hospital with perforated appendix, had the appendix out and my pregnant daughter was at his bedside for the whole 5 days and nights, he was then released and the following day she went into labour and baby Thomas was put in ICU with pneumonia, my daughter was released from hospital and then my Grandson Rhys (who had his appendix removed) was rushed back into hospital with an infection due to the operation, meanwhile my daughter is going from one part of the hospital to the other visiting both children. latest news is that Rhys has to have another scan on wednesday to see if things are improving and baby Thomas will hopefully be out of hospital tomorrow. I have a cheek to say that I have had a busy two weeks as my daughter is doing all the work, but mentally my head has been like mush but we’re heading in the right direction and hopefully this week Rhys will get the all clear and I can eventually get a cuddle from Thomas (I have only been allowed to look at him in the incubator)

Anyway, I better tell you about my card and proof that my head went to mush was I got the theme wrong first lol,  The theme this week for the Forever Friends fortnightly challenge is

‘Anything but Square’

I won a GDT postion and was given the instructions, so can you guess what I did?

Donna's GDT Card 004

Yep, spent two hours making a Square card lol, so I had to make a card yesterday very quickly which was more difficult than usual as yesterday I became a Godmother and had a Christening party to go to and it was my son Kalen’s 7th birthday lol. I got there in the end, so I shaped my card with hexagon nesties and the beautiful paper and image are from Stitchy Bears who is sponsoring the challenge this fortnight.  I hope you get the chance to join in the challenge. Off now to see my Grandsons, enjoy your day whatever your doing. x
