Morning from a poorly me. :( Full of the cold and I am going to have to give in to it and go back to bed once I have been Mum Taxi in a wee while :( 

I started this card last night and have just finished it off. I find that when Im ill my anxiety and panic thingys get worse so crafting helps me keep them under control!!

A couple of challenges have favorite things as their themes, well I think I can firmly say Im a Gorjuss Girl Fan!!! 
My list of Gorjussness includes 9 Prints framed throughout my house, (Including a black and white print called Hazel!!!) A Gorjuss Gelaskin Blackberry cover, My handbag, purse and key rings. Oops!!! I also have lots of the stamps and decoupage too. Don't know what it is about them but they are stunning. 

I had a wee look for teddy sentiments and found this one so thought I would use it. I love my teddy bear too, although have to say she is VERY loved now. (Falling apart!!!) She is 37 though and been through lots!!!(Bit like me!!)
