'My Lady's" Birthday

Hello Everyone.......well a sad day on Tuesday, as it was 'My Lady's' Birthday, and I forced myself to go see her in the rest home....so very sad. She turned 94, and still wants to go home...

I cannot understand how they can put someone in a situation like that, where she is so obviously deppresed and unhappy, and do assessments, and say she is unfit to go home, if she was home, she would be such a different person, then they could assess her...

It took her a wee while to realise who I was...then the tears came and the " I want to go home started"...so sad.

Anyhoo....have another card to share today....using a digi from CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS 

This is KAYE SPRINGTIME 



She is very sweet and so easy to colour, which I did with Faber Castell pencils...
Thee is no sentiment as it was personalised later on and sent away...



A close up of the image......




And a side view, and as you can see it was the days of the old fence for the photograph..that is how long ago I did this..but once the card is sent I'm inclined to forget they are on file..

The lovely papesr are from 'Papermania' and the white border is a 'Magnolia Doo Hickey' die.that I won in a candy from Kylie..

So there you go...bit chilly here this morning as our winter has now arrived... after a freakish hot day 23o on Tuesday, I think, then the next day we nearly reached 12o...brrr...I dont mind the cold...but the sudden changes can get you...

Thanks for dropping in, and all your lovely commnets you leave me, must away and get ready for work, the boys will be here soon, and all the peace will be shattered...lol...love it though..

Chrissy she is just so super cute! I love the image and the lovely border punches that you have used :)

Susan Flynn said...

Its awful about your poor lady! I would much rather have a shorter happier life in my own home than have it prolonged in a care home just for the point of being safe! My granddad was 96 when he died. He fell and broke his hip but he was in his own home and retained his independence until he was taken to hospital. Sorry to waffle but this gets my goat and I always tell my husband I would rather have a shorter happy life than live til a ripe old age but be unable to do anything.

Your card is adorable Chrissy, really pretty backing papers too! Hugs Susan x

ooo lovely little card ... very sorry to hear about "your lady" ... is it your dear mum ? ... 94 ... wow what a lovely age to get to but so sad to be away from her own home ... my lovely dad suffered from althzhimers (ooo still cant spell it tho !) and he ended his last days in a home ... my poor mum was devistated that she could not manage him at home ... sorry don't want to waffle on but I understand just how you feel ... anyway well done on your lovely card ... happy crafting and love sandy xx

Kaye is a real beautie! I love, love love your coloring! You just have such talent when it comes to your coloring. You always seem to know just what colors will work well. So beautifull done. Then your layout is very good too, the papers are perfect for Kaye. I am sorry about My Lady. No, it doesn't seem fair to keep her where she is unhappy when she has a home. But then they get their hands on all she owns, so they keep her, I think. I bet you were sad that day too. So nice you visited her knowing you would be sad. Back to Kaye- another masterpiece, Chrissy!

Alessandra said...

so sorry to read this sad story. Ppl often forget that we all get older and it can happen to us all and it's the worst thing ever when you are old and you are treated like something annoying and you see that everyone wants you to die soon. Not that it is like this with "your Lady". But it's hard for those who care about these ppl and see them being in a place where they are not happy at all! But it's also a burden to bring them home and take care for them too! Sending you biggest of hugs!
