So, here we are, 6pm on Christmas Eve, 2008. I’m going out to dinner soon with my mum & then we’re off to Midnight Mass, but I wanted to get a quick post in first.
Thank you everyone who asked about my mammogram, I think it was ok. I won’t get results until January, but I’m sure I would have been told if there was a problem, so I’m forgetting about it for now.
My mum arrived on Monday & we’ve been getting ready for tomorrow. I think everything is done & if it isn’t too bad, we’ll do without. 🙂
Here are two more Christmas cards I made last week. This one is for a little girl who had a bone marrow transplant during the summer. We all thought she would still be in hospital for Christmas, but she has done so well that she was allowed to go home a few weeks ago. so it’s going to be the best Christmas ever for Katie & her family. The image is Angelique & it was a free download a while ago from Sammi at Crafty Muse . Thanks Sammi! The LO is one of Loretta’s challenges at docrafts. I wanted to make a happy, sparkly card for Katie & I think this is okay.
This was for my friend, Sarita, in California. I stamped the swirl stamp onto plain white cardstock with Versafine’s Tropical Green inkpad. Then I matted & layered the red vellum onto gold card – the gold swirls on the vellum were a perfect match. The Santa image is from a magazine that came out in November, called ‘Vintage Christmas’ & the flowers are Prima – part of the HUGE stash of Prima flowers from my friend Jen. There are so many that she says I’ll never need to buy a flower again, but as we crafters know, need has nothing to do with it!! 🙂 But a big THANK YOU to Jen anyway!!
I have one more card to post, but it’s for Jen & she hasn’t seen it yet, because she is snowed in at a friend’s house & can’t get her mail! She checks my blog regularly, so I’m not showing anyone her card until she has seen it.
I will end here by thanking everyone who has visited my blog in the last few months & everyone who left such kind comments. I appreciate each & every one so much. I wish you all a very happy & peaceful Christmas. I hope it brings you everything you wish for. Until next time, love & light to everyone.
