Penny Black Challenge - Swirls

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. I have had a very emotional few days here. Both kiddies have been off this past week, syd since weds,Both saw the doc who said keep them off for the rest of the week. Well yesterday our Syd's temp still hadnt come down and after her scarlett fever episode a few years back we are very weary of it, the surgery wouldnt give us another appt and the doctor diagnosed her with Swine Flu, she hasnt been swabbed! but has been given a diagnosis anyway. Mart had been feeling pretty rough and last night he was given the diagnosis of Swine Flu too, again no swab, so they are both on those meds. I tell you my heart sinks everytime I think of it, its not good for them I hate to think that they have it,although neither of them are down and out, and its not good for me being pregnant either, the next person who tells me its ok and not to think the worst I think will really feel the wrath of my emotion!

I have lost me mojo think its cos I havent been making cards so much lately but I made one for the Penny Black Challenge this week the theme is "Swirls"I used papers from basic grey, stampin up and I am not sure of the floral patterned one. This is one of my fave ever Penny Black images, which I covered over with ink, the greeting is Hero Arts. I embossed the red strip with the divine swirls embossing folder and I used a swirl sizzix die.

Thanks for stopping by and

Hunny i dont know about swine flu but i know stress isnt good for baby! You cant change the fact they may have swine flu and stressing over something you cant change isnt going to do you or he bambino any good! Think positively - you dont have it!

Are you going to shout at me now?

Love your card hunny - love the rustic feel and the papers you used, reminds me of an old french parlour! Beautiful image oo

hope your ok. did you get my parcel?
love tasha xx

Tara said...

Sending you big hugs Joey - it must be such a worry for you and the last thing you should be stressing about just now! I hope it spreads no further through your family and that everyone is back on their feet again really soon.

Your card is gorgeous and I don't think your mojo has gone anywhere!! xx

Good grief Joey that's a lot to cope with.... you should get them swabbed - it might not even be that - I thought they would have got swabbed automatically - Hope you all feel better soon -

Aww hun, is there no emotional support they can give too? I think it's ridiculous they aren't giving Tamiflu as a precaution now, you would think with you bieng pregnant they would give you some to be safe. The obvious thing is stress hun, but i can't tell you not to worry coz your a mum and thats what we do, Just take plenty of deep calming breaths, and when the older two are resting get plenty yourself. I'm shocked there's not any additional help for you, Fingers crossed they will make a quick recovery, loads of hugs to you all, Tash xxx
