Ice Dance

Good evening fellow crafters. Can any of you believe it is almost the end of
January already? I can't, nor can most people I know.

We have had an eventful week with John...He is bleeding again, and has another
serious infection, the result of which we have been on the 'doctors and various 
tests rounds', and have more next week.

Onto happier matters. I have managed to make another card, this time for Christmas.
At the speed 2017 appears to be going, I want to be better prepared. Yeah, yeah,
yeah!!!!, I know we all say that, don't we, but this time I mean it (she says with
tongue firmly planted in cheek).

My background paper is a serviette, and like with an earlier card, I have used
the clingwrap/serviette/iron method. When I saw one lonely pack of these serviettes
in the $2 shop, I snaffled it double fast. I had a session last weekend creating a  
bundle of backgrounds, so you will be seeing lots of these on my 
Christmas cards throughout the year.

This cute and clever little puppy dog is a very old Penny Black stamp, which I am 
fairly certain is discontinued. I have not used him for many years (naughty me!!), 
but I will try to remedy that situation this year. He is so easy to colour.
