Christmas in July

Hello everyone I want to thank you all so much for your wonderful best wishes and support for me while I am struggling with a nasty bout of depression.
I am feeling a little better but seem to have lost some of my confidence so please excuse the quality of my cards I am hoping that once I feel better and get my confidence back I will improve with my card making.

I have been trying to make some cards as a little therapy and this is my second Christmas card that I have made this year and I have used a new Digi image by Chrissie Armstrong available from Whimsy Stamps.  I was thinking of entering this into a couple of challenges but find that I am to late but I thought I would show it anyway.
I have coloured the image with Copics, the papers are Bearlymine, I added some pink lace, card candy, gems, charm and flowers.
Hugs to all and I hope to do some visiting tonight.

This is stunning Lorraine,I just adore this image and your colouring.Just you take one day at a time Lorraine.xxx
Did you get any post by the way

This is beautiful Lorraine, a sweet image and that snowflake charm is lush :D. Maybe you need a bit of time away from all the dt work you do so you can let your own muse back in? Just a couple of weeks of "free will card making" could make a huge difference to the way your feeling. Just a suggestion :D XXX
