Post-operation update and thank you! x

Hi, guys! I hope you're having a relaxing weekend! This is just to let you know that after my op a biopsy was done on the tissue that was removed, and some cancerous cells were found. So some time in the next 3 weeks I'll begin fortnightly chemo sessions, which will last 6 months. Fortunately the cancer was discovered very early, and the outlook is optimistic - I am very lucky! I hope to be online as usual over the summer though I have no idea how the chemo will affect me! For now the awful tiredness and lethargy that I've felt since January has gone, and I hope that will continue! :) Thanks so much for your kind words, it means a lot! Love, Mags B x

I used a very cute Lili of the Valley stamp, this is Get Well Bunny which is an older stamp which is newly available again for a limited time!! I used Warm Grey Promarkers to colour the Bunny, I like how it looks against the pink of her bedding! The paper and ribbon are from stash, and the sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler set. Go and be inspired by my teamies' lovely work, and join in the Challenge!

I'm sorry I haven't been around recently. Unfortunately I had an unexpected operation at the end of March (appendicitis with complications). I'm home now, feeling very tired and sore, but on the mend! I hope to get back into my usua; routine soon! love Maggie xxx
