Catching up for Christmas



Hi,
Thank you for all your good wishes re the visit to my Uncle, it was emotionally very difficult but was more than happy to give support at this awful time......words are never enough. It is a time for hugs and loving.

I have at long last made a start on some Christmas Cards and tags, I worked my little socks off over the last two days and made some time for my Art Journal as well, which is so theraputic.
Am just showing one of each of my makes otherwise it would be really boring........

Thank you for popping in, for your great support and kindness. Take care Annette x

Hi Annette,
You certainly have been very busy and seem to have made a great start on your Christmas cards, I love each and every one, brilliant work. I especially like the way you've taken a section of Sir Tim's house die and painted it red. That's a gorgeous tag

I'm sad for you that your Uncle is so unwell. As you say, hugs and loving are a big help.
Big Hugs to you Annette:0) xx
