Oh dear, another long gap between visits, I can't blame my daughter this time even if she is still off work, still wearing an airboot & still unable to put any weight on her foot ........... all because of a little splinter, it beggars belief. 
No this time those beastly germs that struck me down overnight with a chest & throat infection are to blame, even if I'd had the energy to do this I certainly didn't have the brain!!!
But I'm here now to catch up with my March parcels. Luckily I had done these cards finishing them the day before I was taken ill.
First one I opened was Pat's, I managed 3 cards but I didn't do the parcel justice (no fault of Pats, just my cottonwool brain I'm afraid) however I have some bits left so maybe I will come up with more.
Here's what I managed so far ...........
This one used 2 strips of cardboard from Pats parcel & some cardboard letters I had, all coloured with marker pens.

Then I opened Liz's parcel, things were beginning to calm down a bit by then so I managed to do 4 cards (and am working on one more)

     I have a few ideas in mind for some of the bits I have left from both parcels if they work out ok.

One more picture for you today, one of my drawings that I have just finished ............ got to admit I am pleased with this one & really like it, hope you do too .....
Well I must apologise for not having been here lately but as you know (or most of you anyway) my daughter had a spell in hospital and is still on crutches with a delightful air boot!! As for me my fibromyalgia reacted to all this with a flare of course!
Anyway things are going well, if slowly, with my daughter and I'm beginning to feel more human again, LOL.
So here are a few cards I've been meaning to post for the last couple of weeks .......

 The one above and below use some bits from my February parcel from Pat and some bits of my own.

 One more Christmas card too add to the box, just a very simple recycling of an old one, It is slightly decoupaged but that doesn't seem to show here!
 This one below I drew myself, wasn't sure it would work but thought I'd give it a go, I later found the butterfly and decided he fitted nicely with it.
