feeling blue...

Not much crafting (or anything else) being done as I'm not very well at the moment, Andrew thinks I have a virus, I think if I was a horse I would have been shot a long time ago and the doctor - well he doesn't think anything as I haven't been able to get an appointment with them, have been trying since tuesday morning. I can have a pre booked one for Friday 28th though.......errr let me

purple murtle of course!

Another card, a different main colour - purple! Couldn't pass this weeks challenge by at Polka Doodles. Murtle would never have let me hear the last of it!! (and by pure coincidence I'm wearing a purple top)

all white?

Suffering from a bad epsiode of Depression this last week, resulting in a panic attack at work (they are so patient with me) and the Negative and tears spewing forth,  I have increased my meds up to try and combat it. I know they are starting to work as I am now feeling rather spaced out. (in a good way!). I should get used to the higher doseage soon.....

To occupy myself I made a card, ironically as the colour associated with Depression is black, I plumped for a challenge using white on white. Sounds simple. It wasn't.

Anyhoo, after two false starts, this is the card I came up with, the topper being part of one of the others I scrapped.
