It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from our wonderful Jen at
Sponsored, this week, by

I was late with my card again this week and to be honest it would not have been made at all were it not for best matey Julie who not only cleared my desk off sufficiently for me to have some craft space but also did most of the cutting for my card today, all of my punching and tied my bow for me too on account of my current incapacity. 
These are my hands photographed next to each other.  It looks like my left hand (the one on the right) is closer to the camera - it's not - it's just very much fatter!  We had an intruder cat in the house who got into a fight with my own resident feline who caught the 'Truder eating his dinner.  I tried to stop the fight and I got bitten by my own moggy.  An accident on his part I know. My hand hurts a whole lot and it's very hot, pink and swollen.  

Fortunately I had purchased some LOTV precoloured images which meant I didn't have to ask Julie to colour one for me!
So here is my card using Craft Works "Christmas Post" papers and a few embellishments and here is our fab sketch
Do come and play along with us!

Excuse me, but have you gone to the Dr.? Crafters sometimes have their priorities confused. Make card/Go to Doctor. That's right call friend to help make card and then go to doctor!!!! Silly goose. Hugs
