nothing beats a christmas hug...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend, well we didn't get up to much yesterday just a quick visit to the supermarket for camera batteries is all...I'm keeping my head down for the foreseeable future hip is a little better today so I don't think I need xrays just a non klutz pair of feet and maybe a few more days rest...thank you all so so much for your sympathies and kind words yesterday they meant so so much to me, I think I was feeling a bit down and sorry for myself yesterday but chin up things have to be better now by the law of averages if nothing else lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge...the theme this month is Shabby Chic/Vintage ...I always struggle with these themes as I'm never quiet sure what shabby chic means but I think my card is more vintage cute is this gorgeous little Christmas image?, its from Whimsy Stamps and is called Little Jack and Bobbin Christmas...I know hes a boy but I think he would work perfectly for a little girls card too...I coloured this cutie with my distress inks and teamed it up with these stunning papers, tags, paper piecing and edging from the Kaisercraft - Holly Bright 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...lush papers arent they, embossed and glossy too, they are so gorgeous, I added a strip of Gingham Wired Edge Gold Thread Ribbon - Burgundy and a bow made with Organza Ribbon - Burgundy (25mm Wide)...the gorgeous cute flowers are from the Blossoms - Resin Flower Pansy set and I finished with a snowflake charm from the Marianne D Winter Charms JU0871 pack and I stamped a sentiment from the Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Gingerbread stamp set...everything I used was from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Calendar challenge and Charisma Cardz challenge too...I think I will head out for coffee today and a catch up with my lovely Dad he always has a way of giving me a good shake lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant fun one

Hi Mina it's good to hear that your feeling a little better. Nothing worse a fall as we are all getting older it hurts more and I think we fall harder as we aren't as resilient as we were when we were younger.
Just love your wonderful card this week and the Kaisercraft design papers a beautiful and so is that wonderful lush bow and those amazing embellishments. This as a great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week and good luck.
