Christmas Baubles

These are Christmas baubles I have been in the process of making since about February this year, I have given them as gifts to the ladies in my craft class, they are very time consuming, but lots of fun once you get to the ribbon part and know you are nearly done!!

Lazy Daisy and Holly

A last minute Chistmas card for me, will have to pop it in the post straight after class and hope it gets to its destination in time!  Lazy daisy are just what they sound like, very lazy and laid back, don't think you will have a problem with them at all.  The holly is a punched shape, so no cutting involved, a nice easy card to finish our year off..  I would like to take this opportunity of thanking the lovely ladies that come to my class, it has been a joy sharing time with you all, you are terrific people and I know we have become friends over the last couple of years!!! thanks girls and a Very Happy Christmas to you all.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A very easy flower this week, trying to make them easier in the build up to Christmas as we are all so busy..........I did a nice cheery flower as the weather in Australia has been very depressing for a while now, not much of our usual sunshine, a bit cool and lots and I do mean Lots of rain!!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

I had a challenging week this week, thought I had a fracture in my foot, but after a bone scan it showed severe arthritis, and that the cartilage between the small bones of the foot had snapped and in some places totally disintegrated, it has been very painful, but am on the mend now.....treatment is the same as for a fracture, wear the boot for a couple of weeks and take it off when it feels better, if it doesn't see a foot and ankle specialist........

On a good note, I had two of my Granddaughters here for the weekend, to help me put up the tree and to allow Mummy and Daddy, to go for a night out to the ""adult place"" as the two year old calls the pub!!  we had a great time, put up the tree, made Xmas cookies and generally enjoyed ourselves, it cheered me up no end!!

Back in the land of the living

Sorry I had to cancel last weeks class ladies, but you woúldn't have wanted to catch the bug I have had, it really layed me low for a week, finally went to the Dr's yesterday and she gave me antibiotics (something she doesn't do without you being really sick) she took the oxygen levels of my blood and they were down to 92% and that is after a week of solid coughing, I have slept in the recliner chair for four nights, daredn't lay down, but enough!! I am starting to feel a little better now, still coughing well but not as violently. 

This card was put together quite quickly, Tulips!! they can be made in nearly any colour and are a fairly simple flower to make (yes I know I always say that, but ít's usually true eh?)

The symbolic meaning of tulips is fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean "believe me" and are a declaration of love. Variegated tulips mean "you have beautiful eyes." Yellow tulips mean "there's sunshine in your smile." And cream colored tulips mean "I will love you forever." Tulips are the foremost national symbol of Holland, rivaling wooden shoes and windmills

I am entering into the following challenge

http://flutterbywednesdays.blogspot.com/ which is a recipe, the colour blue, lace, a butterfly and at least three flowers
and also http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/11/simon-says-anything-goes.html#links
Anything goes.

See you on Monday
