Merry Monday 2010 #3

Merry Monday #3!

Has another week gone by already?  I have been having back pain issues lately, and have been in a pain-killer-induced-fog for much of the past, when I see another week has gone by and I really haven't accomplished much except to go to work and get the odd meal on the table...I get a little stressed, with Christmas coming in less than a month! I wish I had a maid...and a cook...and a personal massage therapist...and someone to put my Christmas decorations up....and heck why not throw in a personal shopper? I haven't got much crafting done lately, am having withdrawal symptoms (from crafting, not from the pills!).

At least I got my Christmas cards done early this year!

  1. These are so cute I love the tree that you folded out of paper and the second card reminds me of a Bob Ross painting. Great job!!

  2. hello Lorrinda . Sorry you have been not 100%, down with back pain .
    Love both cards . Stunning tree on first card and fantastic one layer 2nd card.

  3. Great cards!! I love them both. I have enjoyed all your Merry Monday posts :)

  4. WOW, Lorrinda! The cards are gorgeous!! I really love the teabag fold tree on the first one...fabulous! Hope you feel better's a real bummer when the 'ole back goes out - been there, done that!

  5. There is no pain like back makes your entire body feel awful so I feel for you. Hope you're much better.
