Foxy Christmas and More Than an Itch

Hello and good morning ...
I hope you are well

It's a weird title to my post I know but I'll start with my card - A Foxy Christmas card


I haven't been able to craft much lately due to illness and it felt good to finally come up with something yesterday evening... I even got to try my new paints (Gansai Tambi) which I love


The cut out on the card was done on my Cameo and I did a little painting behind it ... The fox is from the Wplus9 set winter pals ... he was coloured using Promarkers and then covered in glossy accents


More than an itch

Those of you who read my blog know that I was diagnosed with eczema early this year and it's an autoimmune disease... It's more than just the awful itch and the problem skin which is bad enough!
There are times when the immune system works so much overtime deciding it doesn't like this or that so eventually it just burns out...
It leaves me with no energy at all ... just taking a shower is a huge effort and I feel so ill with it. That is how it's been for the last 3 weeks until I started to take some anti inflammatory tablets. For some reason they calm everything and make me feel so much better, though I can't take them long term.

I have to go for more tests in a week or so just to be sure there is nothing else underlying but right now I feel so much more in the land of the living and hopefully on the road to recovery.
Thanks so much for your well wishes and I'll get around to visiting your blogs soon

Have a good day and take care

Hugs

~ Ros ~

So sorry to hear that you continue to feel unwell and not energetic at all. I hope the new tests will bring something to the light that helps treat it. On another note, your card is soooo sweet!

Sorry to hear you're not well. I love this fox, skating on (off?) the ice and I love the way you've got the ornate recessed panel and the placement of the sentiment...so much I love!

First, I'm so sorry about your condition. I'm glad you have a temporary remedy, but I will pray for full recovery. What a beautiful card you created! I love that Cameo cutout, your watercoloring, and the sweet skating fox!

Tracy said...

Well I sure hope they come up with a solution for you soon. It's no fun feeling icky. That little fox is so cute. It's pretty sad to have to admit that a fox can skate better than me. LOL The cutout looks gorgeous with your pretty painting behind. Hugs!

What a sweet fun card with the fox, Ros! And, sorry to hear about your suffering. Hope you get more answers and things improve very soon!

Poor you. Hope you keep well and the tests help to sort things out. You being under the weather has clearly not impacted on your ability to produce beautiful cards.

That sounds like no fun at all! I'm so sorry, Ros, and I hope they find something that works without the drowsiness to bring you relief. Your card is ever so cute, and I'm so glad you're enjoying those paints! Beautiful!
