Good morning all

Lets all roll forward to the end of 2021 - it must  be better than the begining of it!

We're doing our usual once a month motivational challenge

our theme is 


I still have some old art pads from LOTV so decided to make some quick and easy cards - and this is number one!

This is what I did

Lets all be kind and think of each other - goodness knows we need each other more than ever

Good morning all

Well we've all made it to 2021 - goodbye and good riddance to 2020!

We have our first challenge of the year over at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

our lovely Chris has chosen the very appropriate theme 

Thinking of you

it's so relevant to these times we are living through with so much going on,
 where ever you might be in the world.

Living in our third lockdown here in the UK we have so much time to think nd reflect, some good, some very challenging - i'm sure we've all had our moment.

So when Chris suggested a thinking of you challenge i decided to make the effort and treat it in the spirit it was intended.  It helped me because I got my pencils our to colour this pretty image and it gave me a few moments of peace and quiet and I thought about who I would send it to.  This card will go to my mother in law Joan who suffers from dementia, she is 92 and lives in a carehome and also very recently recovered from dementia.  That alone gives us a lot to think about.  She has had no visits in person over this whole time and only very sporadic visits 'in the pod'  from her 3 sons. but we get regular facetime and mostly she is doing well. My DH likes to write little updates for her when he can because she can't remember any of her visits but a written update can be read again and again.....

this is what I did 

8 x 8 card

image- Tigerlily from Pink Ink designs
Coloured with prismacolour pencils 
spaarkle added with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen
Papers Bohemia from Dovecraft 
Orange card from Crafters Companion orange cardstock

I'd love to think that Chris's challenge will inspire people to send their thinking of you cards to someone who needs just a a thought right now
