TPC #82 Not a Card

Hello everyone, I hope you're all well. 

I'm feeling a tad emotional today and would really appreciate some happy healing thoughts for my little dog Dylan - he's back in hospital!!!! 

As many of you know he's had lots of problems this year, including two major operations resulting in the loss of both eyes.  I came home from work earlier in the week to find him basically in a state of collapse!!!  He couldn't walk or weight bear and kept falling to one side, unable to get back up!!!!

I spoke to the vet yesterday and he's comfortable with some improvement but his exact words were, "he's not out of the woods yet".  They're wanting to do an MRI on him to try and find out whats wrong!!  I haven't been able to get through to them so far today!!  I've had a rather emotional conversation with Pete as neither of us want him to have to put him through even more surgery and are also waiting to hear from the insurance company to ensure they'll cover this episode!!

We did get the pupster Harley due to the age and failing health of both Murphy and Dylan but this certainly isn't getting any easier!!


On a happier note we have a fabulous new challenge for you this week over at Totally Papercrafts.

Thank you to everyone who joined in last week ....this week it is the turn of the lovely Sarah  to host. 
 Our challenge this time is for you to create......


Which opens up a WHOLE new range of possibilities which we can't wait to see!!!  I'm feeling quite excited about this one and it'll really cheer me up seeing what you can come up with!!!!

I've used a fabulous stamp by Raindrop Echo Designs and available exclusively from Whimsy Stamps.  Called "Holiday Wish List", it is available HERE.

Isn't it just FABULOUS!!!  I've done one each for Emily and Ethan and I intend to scrapbook them next year!!  I think it will be so wonderful to look back in years to come and read what was on their lists!!!!

My teamies have again come up trumps with this one and you can check out their makes HERE.

We have fantastic sponsors this week are ..

£10 voucher to spend in store (p+p not included).



The winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice, which will be tough as Di's has so many adorable images.

I really hope you can join us this week, thanks for stopping by.  Have a lovely weekend.
