No Challenges At The Moment....

Good Evening our lovely crafty friends

Its Diane here... I am very saddened to let you know that myself and Tanya have taken the decision to close Crafty Friends Challenge Blog for the foreseeable future, with the hope to re-open later on in the year...

The reason for our decision is that unfortunately I have been diagnosed with cancer and so I now need to concentrate on coping with the treatments/side effects and have plenty of rest whilst recovering... and more importantly, I want to spend as much time as possible with my lovely family...  I hope you understand.

Enjoy the summer months, happy crafting and see you all later on...

If you need to contact us regarding anything, please use the following address
craftyfriendschallengeblog@yahoo.co.uk


Hugs
Diane, Tanya and the Design Team Ladies xxx

So sorry to hear your news, and it is a good decision you made to close the blog for now....I had breastcancer some years ago and kept on working all the time through it, and in hindsight should have taken that year off completly....what helped me was focussing on a positive outcome, seeing myself come out the other end well and healed....many blessings Hilde

Tough? Absolutely. BUT... you are even tougher!!! Stronger and better you'll be when this is all over :)
Love and huge healing hugs and prayers ♥
