Today I am in Barbados ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good and your week has started well. During the day on Saturday I finished and photographed several projects I had created. One of those is my Christmas Card Club card and several that I finished especially for certain challenges too.
Saturday night I sat down to edit my photos and type my posts so that I could upload them on Sunday. I finished my editing and I realised I hadn’t photographed the Christmas card and I was too tired to do it then. I planned to photograph the card as soon as I got up and to quickly edit and watermark my photos. I didn’t sleep well because I had a dreadful pain laden night. I’ll get my card photographed and uploaded once I can stand for more than two minutes: I really hate my back issues and how it limits our lives.
Today I’ve another calendar card to show you today and here it is …

I’m really happy with how this one page turned out. In my mind I’m basking in the warmth of the day, relaxing my back on the warm sand, with the sun being warm but not too hot. I’m also dipping my toes into that lovely lush water.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
