A Card for Xmas

Hiya guys.  Ooooh its been a while since I posted on me blog!  Have a few ongoing health issues going on at the mo, sharn't bore you with the details but hence I'm not around so much at the mo. 

I've been kept rather busy this last week with Dylan, my little lhasa apso dog.  As some of you know, he recently lost one eye due to an extremely nasty ulcer that had developed.  Well, his other eye has an ulcer now!!!  We've found out also he's stopped producing tears, his eye is so dry and it impedes the healing and in Dylan's case is related to some sort of nerve damage as opposed to faulty glands.  So he his lampshade back on and I've been giving him up to 12 eye drops throughout each DAY - one every hour!  I'm just sooooo hoping this works, he is worth it! 

On a more positive note - I now have a motor and am back on the road - WHOO HOOOO!  Pete is most definetely BANNED from driving my new car which I've been totally out of character about and named........Belle!  I must be a right sad old bird rofl.

Enough chatter from me and down to the business of being crafty!  We have our second challenge for you today over at the Sparkles Forum Christmas.  Huge thanks to everyone how joined in our first, it was lovely hopping round your blogs.  This months challenge is set by the lovely Angel, this month we want...


My teamies have come up with some remarkable creations to inspire you.  Here's mine using "Gruffy Little Gnome" by Meljen's Designs and available exclusively at Whimsy Stamps HERE.

I must apologise for the naff pic and the shadows.  My usual camera is bust after Emily dropped it a couple of weeks ago so I'm having to use an older one.

 I coloured with copics and promarkers and added a little touch of glamour dust glitter.  The papers are from my stash and I think are from an old DCWV paper pad.  The sentiment is by craftwork cards.

Don't forget to check out the challenge blog HERE for details of the fab prizes on offer.  We are only a fledging challenge and it would be awesome if we gained even more entrants second time round.  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my card.

Take care and happy crafting.

Aww poor Dylan, as if he's not already gone through enough with his other eye, bless him. Got everything crossed that treatment all works especially every hour, but as you say he is worth it.

Woo-hoo on your new car, bet your glad to be back on the road, what did you get?
