Beary Merry Christmas

Hi all you wonderful peeps!! Well it seems ages since I sat down and made a card, I've had that many tests I was beginning to feel like a voodoo doll LOL but it is what it is and now its just taking meds and picking myself up and all those coping mechanisms kick in. I hope everyone is okay seems a lifetime since I have been round all your wonderful blogs but I'm hoping I can get to do that right now LOL. It's been so cold today and lots of people on the north east coast and further down the country have unfortunately been hit by that dreadful weather. I managed to take 'his lordship' out for a run today, wasn't as long as it usually is but it made me feel a lot better that I managed to do it hahahaha. My card today I made using bits of scraps and a Debbi Moore stamp set I picked up in her sale when I visited her store a few weeks ago with my pal Jayne. I love that bear and he's been paper pierced and some frosty stickles added and of course no card of mine gets away without some pearly dots somewhere!! I'm off to visit your fab blogs now I made be gone awhile!!! TFL and lots of hugglesssssssssssssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

This is so very cute. Your paper piecing is wonderful, and of course you do those pearls like no one else. Loved the frosties on his fur hat too. Hope that you can stay inside & cozy warm in this intense cold you're having. Here in SC we've just had rain or drizzles, gloomy gray skies. Our Midwestern and Northern states are getting hammered with terrible ice & extreme cold, so we're blessed with just the rain. Hope your meds soon get you back on top form. Hugs & TFS

I feel for you Sue... I rather felt like a pin cushion myself this summer, but at least a diagnosis meant no more need for needles! :-) Hope you'll be back up and running fully asap :-)
