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!!
Love Jenni

I love the way you created your floral bouquet. You have some precious decorators there. Two of my granddaughters helped put up my tree this year too. They are the best helpers. Hope your foot gets better real soon. Thanks for playing with us at Totally PaperCrafts this week. **Linda

Beautiful as always Jenni; the colours are just so pretty!

Sorry to hear about your foot - maybe you should have a few trips to the 'adult place' too to help numb the pain, lol!!

Great photos - lovely to see your granddaughters little faces.
