GOOD EVENING - Another week!

Another weekend has been and gone, and im sure this week will pass as quickly as the last. I am now beginning to seriously think about christmas, with only 10 more weeks till the big day, I really should start thinking about it. I already have a list of about 50 cards to send, and so far i've only made about 15, im no good at maths, but by my reckoning with the one a week I tend to make, im not going to have enough!! Oh dear, I really do need to get my skates on and start bulk making.

I'm not feeling a hundred per cent, everything seems so much effort just now. I can feel myself going into hibernation mode, which is usual for me at this time of year. David is sure I was a hedgehog or tortoise in a previous life. Does anyone else feel like this during the winter months, or is it just me?

I made this birthday card for Marlene who celebrated her 40th birthday at the weekend. I think im safe to show it now as she would have already received it. The papers I used were some from prima, it came with the adorable flowers and braid. I used the letters from a QVC tsv, and the image is one sent to me, by some kind blogging friend. The brads are from my stash and the highlights are stickles. I'm adoring this cute Penny black image, the hedgehogs are so adorable!

Havn't managed to make anything else today, hopefully ill have more success tomorrow.

Hi Linda, I love the card you made for Marlene, I bet she loved it. Lovely image, colouring and papers. Sorry to hear you feel down at this time of year. I wonder if you have that medical condition that some have where they suffer from the low light levels in the Autumn/winter? Can't remember what it's called it's name is just the letters but some have sun lamp therapy to make them feel better. Just a thought anyway. Hope you feel better soon. I saw you left a comment on my Kadoodle Blog candy post and I realise I didn't make it clear that you have to go to the Kadoodle Blog and enter a comment there to be in for the prize. Sorry about that, I've changed the post now and hope you can follow the link and leave another comment for it. Take care of yourself, hope you get some Christmas cards done LOL. Chris x
