Ready Teddy Go



Morning peeps sorry I've not been around much this week I've had a bit of a down week, my Mum was diagnosed with Alzheimers Dementia and its knocked me and my Sis for six as Mum insists on staying at home, so we are having to work out a rota of care as well as fitting in work and looking after my Grandson, then to top it off as its been busy at work with Fathers Day I was told to only use an additional 6 hours for the week, to say I have been run ragged is an understatement and I'm feeling very tired and down. Mind you the cherry on the top was having my PDR on Friday afternoon I think my ABM was pulling his hair out with me due to lack of sparkle and shine......I wonder why! I think I'd left my Super Woman pants at home that day.....lol.

Just to let you know that its just half way for The Ready Teddy Go challenge, the theme this month is ONE FOR THE BOYS......well being as its Fathers Day today I thought I'd make another Fathers Day card and this one features a Teddy Bo image. I coloured the image in with Prismas as well the little wooden frog which I then put glossy accents on the top with a sprinkle of glitter.

Hi
I am deeply sorry to read your news. My Aunt has Alzheimer's (yes, this is the wife of my Uncle who sadly died last month). I feel for you, I really do as it is a horrendous disease.
Onto a much brighter note .... your adorable card, that bear is really cute.
Take good care and again, sending you my wishes

Awww, Daniele - I'm really sorry to hear about your mum, I hope you manage to get on top of things. I know how hard it is caring for the elderly, my mum is house bound after suffering a massive stroke a few years ago. Your card is fab - a great teddy image and I love how the little buttons echo the bunting. Keep smilin', hun. Big hugz, Jan xx

Alessandra said...

love your cute card, Daniele, it is so fresh and friendly.
I'm terribly sorry to read that your Mum is ill with that totaly useless and nasty thing called Alzheimer's. I wish you much strength to deal with this, it must be so hard to cope with!! Just do what is the best for you and your Mum and don't let guilt take over when you decide to let someone else look after her. It's a heavy burden to carry. You're in my thoughts, Hun!
Big hugs, Alessandra
