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 😦   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..  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 😦 …. however today when we went to the vet is was near to normal (hurrah)  so the antibiotics have done their job 🙂

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  😉

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!
