Letter to Santa

   Another Justinklined image  this  image has been sat in my shed with the magnolia one
 Its amazing what  a tidy up  can find
(still no sign of my glasses though so Im blind as a bat still )
 I have had fun with my crushed glass glitter on this card  
The image is  coloured with  copics and  papers  are from  my stash

of  Sir Puffalot  from Justlinklined 
I had some fun with this card and added a couple other whiff of joy stamps to it just to really get the medieval theme, the papers suit really well.

Did you think Id gone awol ......................

 well all  I  can say  is  nearly.
  Ive had an horrendous few days well weeks lately and my card making mojo upped and left I thought  for good. 
  All this  month either work has been busy, we have been getting ready for Aidans operation  or some other  crisis declared war and we had to sort it out.
 Today was the first  day I  think I could breathe and  relax.
 Aidan has had his operation  and we have spent five days going to and fro to the orthopaedic hospital in Birmingham. As much as the staff were lovely and the facilities are great for teenagers, there's only so much  time you really want to stay in  those places so we were all relieved yesterday when they said he could come home. He's now on crutches and in a wheelchair ( he thinks he's Lewis Hamilton in that thing ) for the next six weeks but as Aidan says the difficult bit is over with now.
Now onto my card  
Ive used the Golden Retriever image from Justinklined and had a fabulous time distressing it  and adding a bit of string and buttons for embellishments. 
Ive been very productive today even hubby was impressed that  my shed is tidier than ever and ready  for some work to be done in it 
 Now  I'm off for some decent grub,  hospital food is just not nice.

Inklined to Hop blog Hop

Yes we are off again on our travels
The theme this  month has been chosen by Lydia and it is to use
Two punches or more. 
 I  had to  think about  this one, then it came quite easily to me
(good  job really the way  my brain has been functioning of late)
 Ive used SU oval punches for the sentiment and a Martha stewart edge punch. 
 I used the ROBINS image from Jusinklined
I just love little robins at Christmas they bring a cheery sight when in the garden.
The papers are  memory box,these are so lush and I used some glitter card from my stash as well as the red ribbon which was lying around looking forlorn.The sentiment is one from PTI (fabulous)

Now you should have come to my blog from Cathy's
and then you  need to go on to our guest designer of the month
 Heres the full list if you get lost
