Christmas Anya

This is for:-
1. Anyone For Anya? - "Make A Fake"
2. Sketch and Stash - challenge 24 - sketch

At Anyone For Anya the challenge is to "make a fake", so on my Anya I used flock as fake fur.
Sketch and Stash has a fab sketch this week and you have to name your new, never used or neglected stash. Mine is using Flock for the very first time, I think I need to use it a couple of times to get the hang of it.

To be honest not keen on the feel of Flock after using it for the very first time on this card, it's like cotton wool and I don't like the feel of that either. it makes me cringe, but i do like the result with the flock.

Well I want to apologise if I'm not getting around to everyone's blogs for a visit, as my two boys are not very well at the moment. My eldest has tonsilitis and a cough which is making is chest sore. And my youngest has croup again with rather a nasty chesty cough, sore throat and runny nose during the day and blocked at night.
Last night was bad, one or the other of the boys had me up at least every hour, they couldn't sleep, then there was steaming in the bathroom for the croup, then one of them needed a drink etc... etc. But what I can't understand is how can they be up all night then awake all day too.
But bless them they are suffering and I rang the emergency doctors but they are not classed as an emergency, so I was told just to keep them on simple linctus and paracetamol.
So I'm shattered but will try and get round to as many blogs as I can.

Happy crafting
Tracy x
