MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY FELLOW CRAFTERS!
I hope you all finished all your preparations, and can finally enjoy the visit by
the fat guy in the red suit. We will be leaving shortly to have Christmas tea with
friends at their home. After the awful heat wave temperatures this past week it is
wonderful to have a cooler day and rain. I hope that those of you in the UK are
safe from what looks like terrible stormy weather and floods.
Yesterday morning, both John and I had appointments with our doctor to renew
our regular prescriptions (oh the joys of getting old!!!), then had planned to do all the Christmas
grocery shopping. However, while with his doctor, John mentioned some 'spots' I have
been nagging him for ages to have checked. As a result, the Doctor said 3 had to come
off immediately. Poor John resembles Frankenstein with his stitches. To top off a
very 'bumpy' year, we now have to wait on biopsy results for a week.
I made my card for John 2 days ago, and really enjoyed doing so. Stepping away from
my usual styles, I created a vintage-look card. It is quite large (A5).
A closer look at Santa and his reindeer flying over the country side.

Like Santa, I must 'fly' - the rain is now quite heavy, but I have to go outside and put all our furred and feathered babies to bed (John cannot help because some of his stitches are in his foot).
Many of you will just be waking to begin Christmas Day celebrations, and for some the special day is almost ended, so wherever you are I hope you have had, are having, or are about to have a wonderful Christmas!
I hope to visit your lovely blogs in the next few days, so until then,
