I've lost a day.

Yesterday I got up had breakfast then went back to bed for a couple of hours.....that turned into 14. I slept the whole day and most of the evening through. I got up again to get myself a drink and take some painkillers....that was what woke me up.....then went back to bed. I can't say that I feel any better for it. Determined to stay up for a while today so I busied myself with making a card. Anything more strenuous was out of the question. It's a good job I've taught my boys how to look after themselves because I'm just no use to them at the moment. Little Theo must sense that I'm not well...he hasn't left me alone for the last 3 days. He's not normally allowed upstairs but has managed to get through the door and laid on my bed with me. When I have got up and gone downstairs he's followed me around chirruping at me, and sat on my knee purring when I'm sat in the chair. They do say that animals know when you aren't well, and he has been a comfort.

Well here's the card and it covers 2 challenges. Papertake Weekly Challenge which is a Ready Steady Craft! recipe...1 ribbon, 2 rectangles and 3 small round embellishments...and Dutch Dare card Challenge #26 which calls for scalloped edges on the card.

Backing paper... magazine download..sentiment cut from a backing sheet. Santa image....Paperartsy. Flowers....Woodware punch. Ribbon and brads from stash.
