Christmas is coming closer and closer...

Hi there! How are you all doing? Fine I hope. I am happy that it is today and not yesterday. Had a very long appointment with the MRI machine yesterday as they are looking for inflammations in my right foot. I wasn't prepared  on how bad they were with the needle. Two tries this time and every time I ask them not to put the needle in my right arm because it won't work. It's out of order when it comes to this subject. Countless blood test has gone wrong in that arm and it filled with scars. Do they listen? Nope! I really love the health care. I think that if someone knows my body, it would be me right? So really smiling about having that over and done with. Today is a new day. And tomorrow too, then it's time to meet the foot specialist in the orthopedic clinic. Keep your fingers cross that they find something that is easy to fix. 

Oh well, how lucky I am to have this blog to ventilate all my frustrations at. Now time for something more fun hopefully. Taadaa! A new card is up. This time I have used my lovely Santa from Magnolia Stamps, Sweden. I have paired him up with some lovely looking designer papers from Bearly Mine Design. They are called Festive Fun and is one out of three new Christmas sets Donna has out. There is also Christmas Traditions and Pastel Christmas found in the shop. Lovely sets all three of them. If you scroll down a bit you find a card made with the Christmas Tradition set. Yet to come is a pastel Christmas card. :) 

My dear old Santa is coloured with distress inks this time and then I have given him some shining surroundings with some golden rod glitter from Rangers. A doily from Nelli Snellen is used. The text is saying God Jul with means Merry Christmas in Swedish. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and so is the golden corners. The rest is from my way too big stash, wonder how I will ever use it all up?

It is Tuesday today and it's my turn to host the new challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges. This week's challenge is Easel cards. The only not so fun part about them is to take their picture. LoL I hope you will come and join us in our new challenge. Maybe make a Christmas card as that time is soon here and I for sure can't wait for it. I look forward to have the cozy evenings at home with candle lights and playing board games. Just wish that P wasn't such a bad looser and makes it not as fun to play. But what can you expect from a four year old? LoL

Our sponsor this week is Fred, She Said Designs. You have the chance of winning a gift certificate worth $20 to spend in their store. It's filled with lovely sweet images. I am sure you find something you love there, so please stop by and check them out.

Love n hugs
