Christmas in Red and Poppy

Afternoon my sweets.....hope you all had a great weekend?? fun and fireworks all weekend and tonight's the night..dont really like it much sound a right bar humbug....but have never been the same since my dad threw a chinese cracker jack at me and had the most awful visions  to this day of me terrified and jumping like a demented child round our back yard...oh yes dad was a meany at times....and since then viewed the fireworks from the safety of my bedroom window..we had fireworks at the castle on Friday and oh my they were very loud buggers!! my poor cat was mortified she hates loud noises so as i sang to her to calm her..... im not so sure i did her more harm than good...lol!!!..onto my card for me this is very minimal...for me 



thought id have a try so coloured up in my pro markers a lovely image from Mos...she so cute had her since last year and have never used her WHY!!!!...perhaps its i dont care for Christmas either as it holds sad times with my mums funeral on Christmas Eve..4 years this Christmas...and it still hurts today as much as it did then...but i reckon she would have liked this card she loved red..my OH used to call her the Red Dragon..in a loving way he adored her too...and she sure had a sense of humour....well waiting for the Drs to ring...i have a resident poorley with the Nurevo Virus and i have been on my throne myself all weekend..so as a precaution im not visiting residents for a couple of days in case i have a mild dose myself i always spend lots of time with her and to be on the safe side visit are postponed.....
also this week end i made myself a sturdy poppy for Poppy day..i used a poppy and covered it with stones and glossed it it might just last out this year a bit longer

right when the Drs have rung i must go out for ...loo roll hehehe..
