SCD Challenge

Over at SCD this week the challenge is tags with the theme being hearts.

So here is my tag

The background has been done using DI inks faded blue jeans and milled lavender, then stamped and finally some hearts added which were made with AI's onto acetate. A little heart and ribbon to finish off.

It's been a difficult weekend in our house. After weeks of gentle persuasion Eric finally decided Jim and I were well enough to be left and he went on a little break with the boys up to Utoexter to a big bike show/boot sale. They camped on the site next to it and had a great weekend.

All was going well here, until Saturday night just as I was putting dogs out for final wee's, when disaster struck. Jim got stung in the mouth by a bee and suffered a terrible reaction. His tongue swelled and he was literally choking to death. Fortunately as part of the agreement of Eric going away I have my mobile in a pouch around my neck at all times and was able to call Dawn's daughter (vet nurse) her partner answer (he's a vet) and got the emergency on call vet out to me within 5 minutes. It was a long 5 minutes with Jim tearing at his face and chocking. The vet gave him an injection and within a few minutes he was able to breathe, so there followed a very disturbed night but Jim is now fully recovered and I am knackered LOL.

Sadly Mum and Dad's dear little dog Benji passed away on Saturday. Benji was my Rulu's brother and was an absolute darling of a dog. He lived the life of a king and was adored by everyone. He will be so missed by everyone but especially Mum and Dad. Sleeptight little man xxxxx

Gorgeous tag! I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to Jim! He's such a fighter though and glad that he's okay now. Give him big hugs from me and my furkids!
