 Hi all, I would like to share my Christmas card with you and enter into some challenges.
I have used an image from Di's Digital Stamps 
this one is called 
I have used an 8" x 8" card the base card is blue glitter card and blue textured card, I coloured the image with a mix of Graphic and Nuvo markers, I have added quite a few die cut embellishments, Poinsettia's, leaves, trees and a large sparkly snowflake and gems, the sentiment is computer generated.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I have not been around for a couple of days, my car passed the MOT but I took my brother's car in today and it failed so I had to arrange for it to be done, I was then asked by a friend if I could help with some work that I had to do on the computer as well as going to mums, the days seem to just fly by I seem to be forgetting what day it is, lol.
I have managed to catch up with my commenting and what a joy it has been such beautiful creations to see and some much needed inspiration, I seem to be losing my mojo.  I was asked by my mums elderly neighbour if I could make her some family Christmas cards and there are quite a few so it is very time consuming, and with DT work and visiting mums it is taking its toll on my creativity, never mind I hope to get back on track soon, 
thanks for popping by 
hugs to all

Sounds as if life is really busy just now, don't overdo it, take some time for yourself too.

Sounds like you've been a bust bee this week Lorraine.

I absolutely love your colouring of this one, despite what my Gran always said that "blue and green should never be seen" I think it's a perfect a colour palette and one I use often.

I already admired this beauty on Insta and I'm amazed by your colouring of this cute bear. Love the card (today I also posted a Christmascard with a lot of yellow).
Take good care of yourself with all that caring about other people. Stay crafting, which helps to relax!

Gorgeous cute card Lorraine .. fab image beautifully coloured and embellished .. I love it! Sorry you feel as if you are losing your mojo but it doesn’t look that way. I am feeling a bit that way too .. feeling a bit overwhelmed by trying lots of different new things and still not feeling good about my marker colouring. Still I guess it’s all a journey 😀

Time is such a strange thing, it can just disappear or it can seem never ending but mostly it just disappears these days, so I know how you feel. It can be a fine line between being busy and enjoying every moment and feeling overwhelmed especially when you factor in looking after your precious Mum. You card is gorgeous I love the blue and gold and you should always be really proud of your colouring skills, they are fantastic xx
