Crafty Calendar and Sweet Stampin' Challenges

Hi everyone..well it seems like a lifetime since I last blogged and I would just like to thank everyone that has sent me hugs and get well messages I truly appreciate every single one of them. It's still really hard for me doing simple day to day tasks but I am receiving a lot of help I'm finding it really hard because I used to be so self confident and strong and this depression just seemed to come out of nowhere and take a total grip of me. So please bear with me as it's a struggle to even do the posts.  Now onto my blog post for today. It's time for our monthly challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenge and the theme this month is 'Halloween' we are sponsored by the fab Di's Digi Stamps 

There is a $12 voucher to spend in store and there are some really gorgeous images to choose from and don't forget to pop over and see what our fab teamies have made too!!

My second card is for our weekly challenge at Sweet Stampin' and our theme this week is 'Wheels' so I have used one of my favourite LOTV stamps and the prize this week is a goodie bag!! so come on girls/guys jump in and enter both the challenges there are some great prizes to be won...and I would also like to thank my teamies at Sweet Stampin for being so understanding too xxxxxxx Lots of hugglesssssss Sue xxxxxxxxx

Hi Sue me wonderful little blogging matey.
I too thought you were getting over your fall, and taking things easy.
So sorry to hear you are having probs with your health be it physical or mental.
Love and big virtual hugs on there way to make you feel better.
I was about to sent you a e card, as I have been thinking of you and wondering.
Right going to get my wand out it's moth balls and wave it frantically to try and help.
Beautiful cards, and wonderful images too, and perfectly coloured as usual.
It's lovely seeing your wonderful style of creating again, as I have missed it.
As you always seem to put a sort of magic in your creations, especially your lovely dots.

Cute cards Sue. Glad to hear you are getting lots of support, but sorry you are still not well. Hope things continue to improve. Sending hugs Zx

MaryH said...

A big, big hug from over the pond. It is no fun to be just where you are at the moment, and please just keep telling yourself, "this will get better". I hope the arm & wrist are not too painful. Had a quick read on some of the earlier posts as I have been MIA here for a bit. The 2 cards are just so pretty. I love Halloween, (altho not made a single one so far). The little witch is a cutie, and I like the way you've colored & dressed her up so prettily with the lacey borders and seasonal colors. The die mat is another dressup for her little self, and your purple spatters look great. #2 is equally delightful, with the vintage look of that tiny Mr. in his motor with his little riding cap on. Love the bow & heart embellie in the corner. You always have the greatest of details on your cards. take care, and again, big hugs while you are recuperating. TFS

Beverley Lowe said...

Gentle hugs,

Oh Sue it is lovely to see you back with us in Blogland, I am so sorry to hear that you have been hit with that awful illness depression, I am glad that you are receiving help and hope that you can throw it off soon, unfortunately it has been a constant companion of mine for many years and every now and again it seems to punch me to remind me that it is still there. Sue your card is beautiful I love both the image and wonderful colours a super, super make, keep it up.
