Another challenge entry


Ok, you're all probably wondering "What has gotten into Chris?? Why, all of a sudden, is she entering all these challenges??"  Well....let me tell you!  Last Wed. about 2 am I woke up with unbelievable dizziness - it felt like I was in a blender with no end in sight.  I fell back asleep, and at about 4 am, woke up again, with even worse dizziness.  When I got up in the morning the nauseousness hit, I was shaky, dizzy and generally felt like total crap all around.   I stayed home Thurs. and on Fri. went to my family Dr. who told me I have something called "Labyrinthitis"  - go ahead..laugh! I DID!  Basically it is an inflammation of the inner ear that causes severe dizziness and nausea - many know this as Vertigo.  AWESOME!  I'm a teacher....how am I supposed to deal with that AND teach  8 year olds???  The last thing my Dr. tells me is that I can't drive (OMG) and I can't work, for at least 3 weeks...........WHAT?!?!?!?!  In between dizzy spells, I feel fine........but when the "dizzies" hit....look out!  So, I've spent a good part of the last 5 days, colouring like a mad woman.  Watching TV makes me nauseous, reading makes me nauseous, and I can't go anywhere....so whats a girl to do?? LOL   So, in between dog walks and dizziness, I colour & make cards! I'd like to get a good start on my Christmas cards! Sooooooooooo, you might be seeing a LOT more of me on here in the next few weeks!!!! :)

I am entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge - their letter this time around is U - Up to you
and at Crafty Sentiments Designs, the theme is Bows or Ribbons.
 
.....so I am entering this card using a Digi Garden image called Peppermints Present.  Cute eh??
The card base is white and the DPs are from a Christmas pack I've had forever - from Paper Mania. The silver ribbon is from my stash! 


Thanks for stopping by - have a GREAT day!!!
Chris
