ABC Christmas

The first challenge of the new blog ABC Christmas went live today. I am late making my card as I have been ill in bed since Xmas eve with a bad cold and suspected pleurasy. Basicallyt he lining between my lungs and ribs became inflamed making it painful to breath and move as all bruised. I ended up at the emergency doctors at 11pm on baxing day as I could not stop wheezing and my inhalour was not helping and the emergency doctor needed to check my chest to make sure it was not pneumonia, so I have spent the last few days in bed, thankfully my husband has been on annual leave to look after the boys.

I could not let Samantha and the rest of the team down after all the hard work that she has put into the new blog, so here is a card from me. It is rather a simple on I am afraid but please forgive me this once.

Hugs, a happy new year to you all xxx

check out the ABC Christmas blog for the winner of my small candy - to be posted in the new year when I am well along with the winners prize from my birthday candy which I have added to as been unable to post with all the family illnesses.

What a lovely card Vicky considering you have been so ill. I hope you are feeling a lot better now. I'm really looking forward to taking part in the new ABC Christmas challenge - it's a great idea to get some cards put past long before December 2010. Take care and all the best for 2010.

Wow Vicky, I wouldn't call this a simple card I think it is fab. If I had created this I would be over the moon but that is why you are designer material and I am not. I do hope you are feeling better hunnie it must have been frightening for you.
