Here comes Santa


After my very busy scrapbook layout this morning, something much more simple. I bought some black Cheery Lynn Santa diecuts from somebody on Facebook and made some 5" square cards which I sell in packs of 2. I used First Edition Silent Night paper, Memory Box die and white glitter card and Crafty Ribbons Christmas ribbon from last year. I really love the way these turned out. I had to cut off the lead reindeer, sorry Rudolph as the diecut was too big for the card. I was lucky enough to win $15 to spend at Scrapyland so I chose the Impression Obsession die which is similar but has 2 rows of reindeer. I also chose a Memory Box snowdrift die, shame about the $11 postage but still less than the cost of the 2 dies so I am looking forward to getting those.

I went to the doctor yesterday about my back as although the osteopath has straightened out my posture and got rid of the general backache I am still getting sudden sharp pains on one side. She has referred me for an X ray to see if anything was damaged when I fell in May. Today we are both going for a health check, blood pressure etc as it is a while since we had that done. Then I need to pop in The Range for some boxes and a browse of the craft section I'm sure, then lunch out and visit my Mum.
