Can you believe I forgot to press publish last night (this morning) and only managed to get to the computer now 10.20pm ish as Craig and Pia came for lunch and ended up staying longer. What a lovely day!!.
I've put a couple of photo's of Phoenix here for you as you have all been sooo wonderful I thought you would love to see my beautiful grandson, well I am biased. He is less than 24hrs old in these pictures. Every time I see him he changes. I spent Friday afternoon with Claire & Phoenix having his bath and a weigh in with the midwife. He was born 7lbs lost a little as they do and now weighs in at a healthy 8.1lbs, he's doing really well.
I have so much pride for our beautiful Evelyn, and what has been achieved in her memory, and now she has become a big sister to her beautiful brother Phoenix. This will be yet another different Christmas for us as a family this year, I really don't want any pressie's to open just many many big cuddles with Phoenix and celebrating Evelyn's wonderful achievements we are very very proud grand parents.
This is my 1st Christmas card this year. It's surprising what you can achieve when you are in a very happy place. I have wanted so many times to make a card for my blog this past 21 months and look at it and think that's a Tina card again.
I don't even know if this is a Tina card as It's been so long, but I have to say I have loved getting back into my workroom to make cards as opposed to just shutting myself away in my safe little space called my workroom. My room has been my sanctuary. When the most devastating things going on every day, testing me to my last ounce of sanity having to watch my family going through something so beyond my control. The tears I have shed in my room in the early hours when everyone was sound asleep, I'm surprised our home wasn't flooded time & time again.
I Sat up one night thinking of Christmas cards a bit like tonight (24th Nov) and it's now 3.20am. Earlier this evening I thought I need to start making my Christmas cards and start to get get back to some kind of normality. If you call 3.20am normal, so I made this card . I am going to make the same style but with different embellishments. So I hope you like my 1st one. I need to go now and cuddle Half Pint (My little puppy dog ) and get some shut eye, so I will say night night & sleep tight.XX
Be back again soon
Hope you like it.
Love & hugs
PS. I'm sorry I didn't reply on my last blog post but had big problems with my computer. Steph, the animals are little buttons and I found them at dressitup.com Forest babies, Stuffed with love (teddies), Out foxed and Hop Hop. Thank you for all your lovely comments, thoughts and prayers for us as a family and for Claire Toby & Phoenix. Also little hugs but lots of them from Half Pint to Billy (((x)))
