Another day

Hello Lovelies! How are you? I hope you are well and thank you for your kind words. Its been another day at the hospital today - Shaun was in a chair today though which is good. Another step forward. We're still having problems communicating though - he's not able to grip a pen as yet and is not strong enough to have his cuff down as yet so is unable to speak. But we'll get there - its very sad to see him so frustrated though.

I have a card to show you today that I made for the Indigo Blu challenge - the theme is glitz and glamour and I didn't have many stamps to fit this theme - so I compromised and went for a glamorous colour combo - black and gold!


I wish I had used gold ribbon - but that was something else that I didn't have!!! 

anyway - I would like to enter this into indigoblublogchallenge-glitz-and-glamour

Thats all for today - I hope you are well and happy and wish you all a very fabulous 2015!

Hugs rachel x

  2. It is normal for him to feel frustrated and must be so hard for you to see huni. It will get better, it's going to take a long time for you though. I'm sending you both my hugs and prayers. Also I'm hoping 2015 will be happy and healthy for you both.
    Gorgeous card - so very lush and luxurious! I like the white ribbon as it stands out from the rest Karen xx

  13. It's good to hear that Shaun was out of bed and sitting in a chair Rachel, I'm sure he is feeling very frustrated but I think even that is a good sign - he must be feeling stronger. I do hope that the communication problems improve soon and that 2015 brings good news and steady progress.
    Your card is gorgeous, the black and gold combination is so elegant.
    Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
