Cinderella, you shall go to the ball

Morning Peeps, I seem to say this on most of my mid month posts for  We Love Chocolate Baroque and Stamping Sensations, but it really is a quick one as life is throwing rather a lot our way at the moment. Prizes at both challenge this month are from Chocolate Baroque.

Poppy is now home from hospital and seems to be doing OK, huge hole in her neck size of a .50p piece from the tracheotomy as they don't like to stitch or cover apparently, so hourly cleaning of that and they can't do more until it closes. Daisy is struggling with her back legs and clearly in pain so at the vets with her this morning........after taking Alex to Cambridge Nuffield Lea hospital at 7am for his knee surgery.

The top card is for our Christmas Flowers, Wreaths and Garlands theme at Stamping Sensations and the one below for the Christmas theme at We Love Chocolate Baroque.

Lovely Christmas makes Brenda, sounds like you have got your hands full at the moment - we've still got builders here and decorators are through the house this week so it's not much better here - I'm so fed up of living in a mess!!!! xxxx

Gerrina said...

Oh bah, still having troubles with Blogger and just didn't think of your blog that wasn't showing in there while I could have known that you made a lot and showed that into some posts... So...I scrolled a lot and took my time to enjoy so many beautiful makes! (My cup of tea was full when I started and is empty now...) In each post I find something that inspires me or ehat I really like or want to try once myself... Thanks for all the inspiration!
From these the wreath is so beautifully done; that is my favorite here, but both are beautiful! Big hug, Gerrina

Lovely cards Brenda. The wintry foliage makes for a gorgeous frame on the first and the pyramage on the second is brilliant. Sending good wishes to your two and four legged family members for speedy recoveries xx

Ellibelle said...

Both are so nicely done! I can't believe I've not used my Lavinia carriage stamp yet even though I've had it for probably a year now!! I love how you stamped it inside the wreath!

It's good to hear that Poppy got to come home and hope she makes a full recovery very soon!
Good wishes to Alex and Daisy as well. I'm sorry you have so much going on at the moment!

Oh Brenda, che orribile periodo!!! Mi dispiace tanto per Poppy e Daisy! Spero che il buco di Poppy guarisca presto, credo che metta ansia soltanto vederlo! Ma per fortuna l'hanno salvata! Povera Daisy, spero che i veterinari le facciano passare il dolore e la curino bene. A entrambe una rapida guarigione!
Dita incrociate per Alex per la sua operazione al ginocchio!
Sembra davvero che tu non abbia pace in questo momento!
La card di Cenerentola e così allegra e festiva! Bellissima ghirlanda, perfetta per far risaltare la carrozza!!
La card per CB è così dolce e quel grande fiocco rosso aggiunge un bel feeling d'amore!!
Un forte abbraccio e abbi cura anche di te!!

Good luck to Alex for his knee operation, you take care too, Kate x
