New Challenge Catch the Bug

Hi Everyone
I hope you all had a good Christmas and Santa brought you some lovely goodies, he did me and I was totally spoilt, he sent me an extra present of chicken pox, YES at my age of over 21 lol, I came out in spots, so off I trotted to the docs and she said AT YOUR AGE  (what is this age thing lol) you have got a mild case of Chicken Pox.
I have to ask mum if I ever had this because of my understanding you do not get this twice, I did have bit of a fever but I am feeling a lot better now, so here I am with my card for the challenge over at Catch The Bug and this week we would love to see your creations based on the photo inspiration.




I made a loved themed ATC using the image called Decon Heart.


 You can find this image at Bugaboo Stamps and lot’s more too and don’t forget Jodie has a 50% sale on all images at the moment

I want to wish you all A Very Happy New Year and to Thank You All for the support you have giving me during Brian’s cancer this year, I truly appreciate your friendship, concerns and hopes for him.

I hope the New Year brings Brian better health and the strength to keep fighting this terrible disease and to all my lovely friends I want to Wish you all the very best for the Coming Year and pray it’s a good one for you too.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside
