Last month I won tickets in a radio competition to an advance screening in Newcastle today of 'Quartet', starring Maggie Smith, Billy Connelly, Tom Courtnay and Pauline Collins, and several other well known actors. It was brilliant, and I highly recommend it, especially if you are fond of music (particularly Classical).
This card is for a close crafting friend, and features one of my favourite animal stamps by Penny Black - 'Jolly Xmas Kitty'.
The white edge and red strip are punched with Martha Stewart's 'Aspen Snowflake' PATP(my new favourite punch). The 'Merry Christmas' greeting was cut from gold mirror card with a Cheery Lynn die. I triple mounted the image, over Bo Bunny 'Rejoice Holly' DP.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers, and glittered the fur on the hat.
The gold 'snowflake' under the flowers is a new Christmas tree decoration, the berries are from an old decoration. I made the pins from beads in my stash. Holly leaves and ferny leaves are both Cheery Lynn.
Corners are cut with Cheery Lynn 'Deco' dies, and the white message panel is from a Spellbinders die, 'Floral Ovals' (This seems to be my favourite die at the moment, along with the Cheery Lynn holly, and ferny leaves dies).

You may have read on Monday that I had to have an X-ray and Ultrasound on my shoulder yesterday, followed by a cortisone injection into the joint...well, I didn't have the injection because I have to have a shoulder re-construction instead!...there is more damage than anyone suspected. No wonder I have been in constant pain for about 12 months. I have to say I was shocked when the radiologist told me the news, and I now have to see my GP on New Year's Eve to organise the surgery.
I really must go to bed, as I need to be refreshed tomorrow because dear little Russell is spending the day with us, while his mummy does some Christmas shopping.
Until next time,
