A Trio of Trees

I'm still on my "I must not be rushing to get my Christmas cards finished this year" 
fixation, but how long that will last remains to be seen.

I am trying to make more flat cards this year, as the cost of postage in Australia is
exorbitant for anything other than a standard-sized flat article. This card was
fairly quick to make, but I don't think I like the silver glitter that I sprinkled 
liberally onto touches of glue. It is a shame that the ribbon photographed
as it did, because it is the most beautiful shimmery burgundy satin.

A closer look at the die-cut trees from a set of six. This is the first
time I have used the dies although I bought them about 
12 months ago......Me bad girl!!!!!

This morning, I had to take my kitty cat to the vet, as he has been 'flicking' his ear for a few days. The vet has diagnosed a severe bacterial infection, and as a result John and I are in for some "FUN" over the next week administering antibiotic drops...Cookie does not have the word "co-operation" in his vocabulary. In fact our vet, and the vet nurse are scared of him, and when John and I have to give him any medication or treatment, there is a fair amount of blood involved...and none of it belongs to Cookie!

I'm now off to pretend I am a domestic goddess, and attend to some much needed ironing and dusting, so until next time, I wish you "happy crafting".
