Finally a card!

I have been really ill this last week so haven't made any cards for over a week. I missed all my DT cards for this week and also had some other cards I had to make but none of them got done because I couldn't stop being sick for days.
Anyway I am feeling a whole lot beter now and couldn't wait to get crafting today.
I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and made a Christmas card. I really must get started on them properly because I have so much to make for family and friends, not to mention all the ones I have to make for the school fayre and to put in the staff room at the school for the teachers to buy. I normally get a lot of orders through the girls school so I should really have loads done by now, but one is a start I suppose lol.
I used some more of the Christmas papers by Crafts House and an image I got as a RAK, isn't it just the sweetest? I left the colouring on my little angels really light and used white glitter on their halos and wings. You can't see the glitter here but maybe you will be able to see it if you click the pic. I used my scalloped circle nesties to cut the circle and finished off with a some ribbon from my stash and few Anita's foil dimention stickers. It doesn't really show on this pic but just the middle of the snoflakes stick to the paper so you can curl up the rest for dimention but of course mine look as flat as pancakes because I scanned the card lol.

I have missed blogging so much and have really missed visiting you all :( So I think a big blog hopping session is on the cards for me later on today :) I also have top take some pics of some bits and pieces I got for my blog candy, so will hopefully get that on here today too.
I won't be around tomorrow because I have the hospital with Rhianna to get teeth out.
She has had severe toothache for a few days and I had to take her to an assesment yesterday to see if they would remove the teeth or not and as she was in loads of pain, the dentist who was really lovely to us, phoned the hospital to see if she could get an appointment sooner than the normal 2 weeks waiting time. I couldn't believe when the hospital phoned this morning to say they had a space for her at 10am tomorrow! I am really impressed with how quick they were for a change. I'm really glad that she is getting the teeth out but at the same time I'm so nervous! She will be put to sleep and they want to take out 10 or 11 teeth! She has two next to each other at the back which have a hole in the middle of them and that's what has been giving her so much pain and 2 others that they could just fill but they said they are just as well taking them out while she is getting the others done, but the others that they are taking out are to make room for her adult teeth. So don't think Rhianna will be a happy bunny tomorrow :(
Wish us luck!
