Chunky Cards

Hi there everyone!

I have some cards and some news on Chunky to share with you today…

Firstly Mr Chunks.. well….he had to have emergency surgery last week because he ate a sock and it blocked his small intestine ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ย  and they could not work it through and out the other end.. they had to cut into his intestine to remove it… He was high risk for the operation, because he is still getting chemo so he has no immune system, and also he is on steroids which inhibit and slow down the healing process.. ย I have been at the vet with him every day last week getting his temperature checked as because it was high and kept getting higher ๐Ÿ˜ฆ …. however today when we went to the vet is was near to normal (hurrah) ย so the antibiotics have done their job ๐Ÿ™‚

So with chunky on the road to recovery I headed up to my shed today and made some cards for my Etsy Shop …. I am selling cards to help contribute towards my vet fees, as chunky still requires chemotherapy every 4 weeks (or until it stops working).. so if you fancy a wee handmade card here is the link to my shop Seafoamblue ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are some of the cards listed… I even have a chunky range and hope to bring out an Isla and Rhona range too very soon!

I’m off work tomorrow… so will be back in my shed making more cards for my shop

As always thank you for popping round

Mini Card Sets

Hi Everyone!…

Happy Sunny Sunday to you all, I hope you managed to enjoy the sunshine today where ever you may be

Today, I have 6 cards to share, ย 2 sets of 3 ๐Ÿ™‚

First up we have the velvet floral trio, same card, but different patterned papers and sentiments.

Then we have the second trio with a love theme, which features some foiled cardstock and some more mixed sentiments

love trio

I opened up my Etsy shop today, and I sold out already! thank you to everyone who bought cards, it is very much appreciated, with all proceeds going towards Chunky’s chemotherapy vet fees.

For those of you that don’t know, my big springer spaniel boy chunky was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the end of last year and he has been receiving chemotherapy since then. ย  ย I found out recently that there is no cure for him, and the chemo is keeping it at bay … basically he has to receive chemo until it stops working…. and it costs a lot of money, so I am selling cards and de-cluttering my craft stash to help pay for his continued treatment.

Righty-ho that’s me done for today.. I have had a very productive/busy Sunday, hope to see you all very soon with more cards and creations

Take care
