Autumn Leaves

Good morning. I am still not back at work and next week I am going to hospital to have the next stage of investigation into my back problem - a discogram - a procedure that I am not really looking forward to but if it can help confirm what the specialist thinks is the cause of all my pain and therefore help with the decision of the treatment then I shall just have to grin and bear it!!!
In order to help take my mind off it all I have been trying to keep busy doing some crafting but to be totally honest I am really struggling to get motivated and and my mojo has just disappeared!!
I am trying to focus on making some Christmas Pressies and this is one that I started on Monday and have just finished it this morning.

This used:
Background image - PB Letter Backgroung 1999L stamped with Dried Marigold distress ink
Leaves - spellbinders cut from BG Sugar Rush DP's
Sentiment - Papermania
Twine and buttons from stash.

I have used Autumnal colours so that it fits the following challenges:
Basic Grey - Autumn or Fall
Crazy 4 Challenges - Autumn/Fall
Stampin' For the Weekend - Halloween or Fall

Thanks for popping over.
Have a wonderful day.

Hi Debs, Gorgeous project! I love the beautiful autumn colours.

I can understand why you're not looking forward to the discogram. Not sure what is involved but doesn't sound pleasant. But if it helps them to decide on the best treatment plan it can only be a good thing :o)

Wow! What a fab gift set. Love those leaves.
Good luck next week, it's not nice having these tests, but hopefully they will discover what is causing your pain.
