Cardinals In Winter Scenery

Today I want to show you another Christmas card that I did. This was created before I got sick. But I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I worked on some little projects after work this week. It seems I had a mountain of paperwork to sort and set straight after being out of work and yesterday was a good day for me. I stayed focused and caught up. The meds make it hard for me to stay focused-but now that I am taking less I notice a difference.
