Shake it Up & Covid testing

 Hello there... How are you?

Well there's been a few things happening here since I last posted but first I'll get on to the cards I'm sharing today.

The weather is cold and miserable, we are in a lock down and Christmas is coming - Time to pull out the sparkle with a few simple shaker cards

Of course it helps to use up those zillions of sequins I have and the painted pieces that work for backgrounds or to make those sequins sparkle and sentiments shine

 These are both normal size cards - The die is from AliExpress and the pretty centres on the snowflakes are from a hoard of gems

The next few cards are slimline...

 Which can be stood either way

So last Friday hubby and I had our Covid tests. Thankfully we tested negative and will be going for a follow up test again this week. I have always been in two minds about the testing given that there are idiots who refuse to quarantine or wear masks and lets face it I could be negative one day but positive the next. However, a lot of time and effort has gone into the organization of the mass testing project and then again those young handsome guys in their Army uniforms were just too much for me to resist Lol!

Was it worth it? Yes. Each time I get a sniffle or a cough, my heart races with the what if? Was it uncomfortable? Only for 10 seconds and the scheme has been extended so we can go as many times as we wish but the main thing is that the R rate has come down and hundreds of asymptomatic people have been diagnosed.

We had to break the rule a little yesterday as my brother needed to come over but he took the test here so we all knew we were clear. Another distressing family issue has rocked our otherwise quiet life and I'm grateful we have each other for support. We'll get through as we always do... 

Stay safe and well and thanks so much for your visit

Till soon
