Gnomes, Elves and Fairies

 Hello all, hope the weekend was a good one. Mine included another Covid Clinic on Saturday morning with another 500 local patients jabbed. The gratitude has been truly overwhelming. The local Mayor has provided doughnuts for the staff and volunteers on more than one occasion and the patients themselves have given us home baked cakes and biscuits. I am pleased to hear that so many of you have had your first vaccinations.

So, the reason for my visit today is Christmas!! We have had a little rest over at

and this is the first challenge of the year and it's a good one!!

Gnomes, Elves and/or Fairies. I went with this fantastic gnome from a brand new sponsor. 

I coloured him with Promarkers to match the lovely papers and added a bundle of ribbons and threads as a finishing touch. 

Thank you for your visit, it is always much appreciated xx

A perfectly matched DP Sarah, a fab gnome card.
Well done with your Covid clinic, Al was wondering how many our clinic got through in a day. He asked me to ask but with my arm bleeding it put it out of my mind! Talking to girls in the US has made me even prouder of the NHS, Covid vaccinations seem to be a bit of a lottery over there, heard some were travelling over 4 hrs to get theirs! Keep safe. :)

He is soooo cute Sarah and I love the button/ribbon embellie. I have volunteered to help with our vaccinations and have been most impressed with the appreciation from the folks we are helping. Stay safe my friend.
