I am way behind on my Christmas card making this year and still have a tonne of scraps I want to use up. Time to pull my finger out and get Christmas crafting but Mr Mojo seems to have disappeared. So I went searching for some challenges I could take part in hoping that I could get some inspiration. I came across a sweet sketch on the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday blog and finally came up with this card.
The papers came from a kit I got from Create a Smile recently so technically not entirely scraps – although one of the pieces was left over from another card I had attempted earlier. The backing cardstock is from SU but I can’t remember what colour it is and the sentiment and ribbon are also from SU – those I can remember the colour is Real Red. Nothing fancy but I should be able to make a few more of the same design ready to send off at the beginning of next month.
I’ve not been feeling very well this week, just an irritating cough and cold but I thought I’d get my chest checked out just for reassurance. I also needed to check up on the outcome of a couple of recent hospital appointments so thought I’d kill two birds with one stone so to speak. Unfortunately the Dr I had been seeing has now left our surgery (quite a few of the good ones have) and I was allocated a new doctor. On the plus side I don’t have a chest infection which is good, but on the downside with regards to the outcome of the hospital appointments I came out being made to feel I had wasted everybody’s time. Your tests are negative, there is nothing wrong with you, you don’t need any tablets, just get on with it regardless is what I was told by this Dr. Now I feel as if I’m a hypochondriac and yet I’ve hardly ever been to a Dr in my life. Oh well as my blog says SUch is Life.
