Still struggling...still sorry!

I don't think I have ever been this bad with my blogging before.  I just can't seem to get around to visit my lovely buddies out there and I really am sorry.    I am also struggling to deal with Christmas - normally a real favourite time of year for me and I dug out shop bought Christmas cards today to send to most people (shock horror!!!!) because I know I am just not going to have enough home made ones and my mojo has gone walk about.
I have managed to make one more Christmas card - the recipe for which is exactly the same as the one in my last post only using another one of Mo's adorable elves.  This one is Little Elf Fin, coloured in Promarkers, and you can find him here. I would like to make some more of these.  I like the idea of a bauble image on a bauble and these little cuties are a real delight to colour. 
I am entering my card into the following challenges in the hope that a win will boost my deflated spirits.
Papertake Weekly Anything goes with option of something dangly
Colour Create Red white and green
Creative Card Crew Tis the Season
Passion for Promarkers Celebrations (with some fab prizes by the way)
Simon Says Anything Goes and
Kaboodle Doodle Colours of Christmas

On the upside - I might be feeling a little better in myself.    No quick fix from the doc but a medicament provided might be having an improving effect - it's hard to tell yet!

So glad you "might be feeling a little better" Still have you in my prayers that you will soon be feeling "all better"!

Darling card and well worth using the same layout!

Hugs, Linda

Hi Lesley

Hopefully your medication will kick in after a little while .. .. sometimes they can take a bit of time to get into the system.

I love your idea of a bauble on a bauble .. .. and the finished result is lovely.

I hope you feel much better soon and that you will enjoy the excitement of the Christmas preparations.

Love Jules xx
