Hi Everybody, hope you had a good weekend.
Thank you for all your well wishes for my son.
They ruled out kidney and definitely appendix and lymph nodes are very sore, but are doing other tests.
He's still unwell and I am awaiting a call back from the GP as I write this!
He collapsed over 8 weeks ago and for a usually fit and healthy sports mad 13 year old to be like this is not right. Obviously blogging is taking a back seat at the moment but I will call by soon. Thank you for understanding.

The lovely and talented Caroline over at BBTB2 has challenged us to use a pumpkin cut.

I used Artiste for this 3d pumpkin and cut it a few extra times, added ink and black enamel and glossy accents. I seem to love thread and pegs at the moment and if I ever get around to taking photos of tags I have been making you will see that!

I hope you will call by and see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT and link up and play along.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. I will definitely keep your son in my prayers. I hope he gets back to feeling like himself really soon. I love your 3d pumpkin and the glitzy paper that you picked for it. Love that you used a clothes pin for the stem. You always rock 3d projects!

  2. I am keeping you and your son in my prayers, Jayne. I hope they are able to diagnose him soon so he can get better. Your pumpkin is adorable!! I love the clothes pin stem!! It looks fabulous!! Awesome as always!! Thinking of you and praying for good news soon. Huge hugs :)

  3. Cute pumpkin, Jayne. I like the clothespin, too. You will all be in my prayers. I'm assuming they are checking for odd infections from his travels abroad. I hope they find something soon so they can fix it. Blessings

  4. Your son comes first Jayne and you don't need to worry about visiting us! It important to find out what is going on with him. No an active 13 year old doesn't collapse for no reason or have sore areas in his body!! I pray that they find what is going on with him and that it can be dealt with. Praying for his recovery my friend. Now I do love your sweet 3D pumpkin! The black enamel is awesome on it!! Take care my friend and take care of that son of yours, we will do the praying!!! Big hugs, Brenda

  5. Sending up prayers for your son Jayne! Praying that they find out what is going on and can fix it asap!!
    Love, love, love your pumpkin!!! The color is fabulous and I too love the clothespin stem! :)

  6. Jayne ~ Well this pumpkin is ADORBS!! All the deets are PERFECT as always! Now most importantly is your son! I am still sending prayers and healthy vibes your way! I so hope they get back to you soon and he is on the mend very soon! Post when you can but your son/family always comes first! We aren't going anywhere!!! You have been on my mind this whole weekend!

  7. Continued prayers for your family absolutely love your 3D pumpkin super cute!

  8. Your son is more important than any blog or craft! I just hope they find out what's going on very soon! I'm worried for him & You! I'll keep praying all will be well soon!

  11. The worst part is not knowing what is wrong, I hope they figure it out soon. This little pumpkin is just cute!

  12. My dear friend, your precious kiddo remains in my prayers. Heartbreaking to go through and I hope you know we're all here for you. So many hugs for you all! Your pumpkin is adorable, especially with the lovely details you added. Beautifully done as always, Jayne!

    Hugs and blessings,

  13. not knowing what's wrong is excruciating. I was just through that with my adult daughter last year, and she did not get a diagnosis. But all is well

    adorable pumpkin, especially the adornments. I want to make this one for Thanksgiving and put them around the dinner table.


  14. Sending out my prayers to you, your son & family.
    Adorable pumpkin.
    Have a wonderful day my friend,
