A couple of Christmas cards and some Happy News

Hello there,

The good news is that my little Grandson Jack had his surgery this morning and everything went well.  He was discharged this afternoon and is now resting at home with Mum and Dad.  Phew... what a relief that is and I feel like a little of the weight has been lifted as it's one less thing to worry about for now.

Onto crafty things now.....

I was looking through my blog earlier as I try to keep everything as up to date as I can and I realised that I never posted the two cards that were published in the January edition of Craft Stamper, so here they are:



I would like to add the first card into Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Day Challenge.

That's all from me for today but I'll be back on Sunday with my last two Crafty Individual samples for their February shows.

Take care of yourselves and I wish you all a very happy weekend x

Congratulations on having these two fabulous cards published in January's Craft Stamper Sandra. I adore the snowy scene so beautifully done with the added textural snow in the foreground, and the brown holy city and the complementary white and brown snowflakes look great against the pretty blue sky, and the matching brown layer finishes it perfectly. x

Sorry, I meant to say that I'm so pleased for you that your grandson has had his operation and that it went well. Hopefully he will soon be racing around again and feeling good. x
