Back to the Jigsaws etc

Followers of my Blog will know that I love doing Jigsaws when I can't craft properly. The arthritis is still ever present so I retrieved the puzzle I had started before Christmas from under the sofa and got started again.
It is a Colin Thompson one - of course - and here is the picture from the box.
It is called 'The Red Box' and like all Colin's puzzles - difficult.

'Parching' - if there is such  word - is proving very difficult and painful at the moment so as well as doing jigsaws I am doing more stamping, decoupage,  general card making - using my CD's of course - and some digital card making.  I belong to a group of crafters that exchange birthday cards throughout the year and for next month I have to make 4 and in April 6. So I am creating them digitally with either Serif, Docraft or MCS and then printing them out.  Not what I usually do but at least I am still crafting.
Here is one I have made using Serif and Daisy Trail.

I am finding it quite challenging working with Serif.  I think it is a whole different world and I am only just dipping in one toe but enjoying  the challenge.
Good news is that the hospital rang and brought my appt forward so not too long now until hopefully I will receive some treatment so I can get back to 'proper' parchment work.
Hugs and happy crafting.

  1. Sorry to hear that you are in pain at the moment Carol, hopefully this cold snap will be over soon and things will start to improve. I love the puzzle you're doing and the gorgeous card that you've made with serif.

  2. Love this card, I love the image and well done on doing something new
    I am glad they have brought your appointment forward, I hope they can do something for you, we don't want you able to finish crafting.
    That looks another great jigsaw,
