Holly Tree!

Good Morning All Blogging Friends and of course Visitors.  I do hope all is well with you, and if not, then sending out good wishes for you to feel better soon.

Finding it more difficult to getting around to posting as I am stepping up my phased return and now doing a full week and beginning to introduce full days, and feeling terribly tired at the end of the day, but I soldier on and hope for a miracle of energy.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my wonderful purchases and my last card.  I have had no opportunity to play with anything else as yet.

Up and around early this morning as I have to go to the Diabetic Clinic for my blood test results and review, I don't think they will be all that happy with me as I have severely lapsed.  Naughty Girl!!

Anyway, have a card to share today and here it is;
This lovely image is from LOTV
Sentiment and papers LOTV
Green Core'dinations Card
Xcut die Shapes
Die'sire Holly Die
Hobby Craft Tartan Ribbon
Hobby House Pearls
Star Gems from Dovecraft
Glamour Dust
Stickles in Holly

Off now to get myself together, or at least some semblance of order and hope to be back soon,  have a lovely day everyone, and happy crafting.
I would like to enter my card into;

Love this bright cheerful card Kate. The tartan paper and bow look really festive. Hope your phased RTW is going well. After a long absence it is always very tiring but take care of yourself. Love and hugs Christine xx

I hope things are going well at work for you and you feel happier about things luckily it will soon be weekend and hopefully you will get to play with your new goodies then!
