Christmas Card and Challenges

Hi Everyone.
More news today and its all good, my hubby will be flying out next week to join me here, he got the ok from the specialist but he has to go back at the end of the month for his cemo and scans, we still have a specialist here too that knows all about Brians condition incase anything happens, you never know with this rare type of cancer what is going to crop up.
So my little stay has turned out to be a lot longer than I thought as I will go back with him, I will have time to craft while he is resting too.

I got a lot of work done yesterdays so I got to craft last night and I felt a Christmas card coming on, my resolution to make a Christmas card a week went down the pan with all that was going on but I hope to rectify that now ermmm she says with tongue in cheek.

This card is for a friend who likes Pink Christmas’s, I’m a traditionalist myself and like reds and greens but it did fit in with the Cupcake Craft Challenge theme of Christmas and to use pastel colors so I think this fits the bill.

I also used Papertake Weekly sketch which I loved using. The Christmas theme over at Die Cut Christmas Club is Sweet Christmas Wishes, I love entering their challenges as it spurs me on to make at least one card a week.

Well I must dash now as I am going out to a Japanese restaurant with friends tonight and I have to find something to wear, I must have been in out of that wardrobe a million times today and still can not find anything agggg.
