more jingle bells...

Good morning everyone only two more sleeps to go, btw I would love to know what you have asked for from the big red guy (or someone else close to you)...my poor Dad wasn't well yesterday so they put off his tests and scan until this morning so its back to the hospital today, but on the good side my Sister is coming down from Belfast to drive him up for Christmas as he isn't too good so at least I get to spend a few hours with her while shes here...my card for today is using this stunning image from Just Inklined called Christmas Bells which is the amazing price of £1 would you believe...I love this stamp it just screams Christmas doesn't it...I coloured it with distress inks and used this gorgeous freebie paper from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine as my colour theme, its unusual isn't it but works really well for this stamp I think...I also teamed it up with some of my favourite red gingham ribbon and cut out some of the flowers...as this was a card for a special friend I also added a beautiful Joy charm that's enameled and has tiny gems on it...the lush sketch is from Sketch Saturday and Im also entering it for the Creative Inspirations challenge and Charisma Cardz challenge too...I still have a few bits and pieces left to do, including the wrapping which always takes me ages, too fussy about bows etc that's the problem lol...keep your fingers crossed for my Dads tests today, I so want them to be over so he can start enjoying his Christmas and I hate it when there's anything wrong with him...if you have time pop back tomorrow as I have made something special to wish you all a happy Christmas, I hope you will like it...have a brilliant day everyone

Hope your dad is better Mina. There are several people around the world who do not appreciate this time of year in the sense that since their health is ok they should be just happy that they have it all. Sending you special hugs and I will pray for your dad to be better. Hugs xxxx Claire
