Crafty Sentiments Recipe Challenge

Good afternoon all on this freezing cold day, I hope you are somewhat warmer where ever you are. When I get  up in the morning, open the curtains to see the sea crashing against the shore I know it is going to be a cold day but today it is crashing so hard it is coming over the sea wall hence I am FREEZING!!

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Crafty Sentiment Designs and this week we had a recipe to play with which was:- 
1 ribbon
2 images
3 papers.

Now my card is a little late but it is my first card for the challenge in what feels like forever lol, it took a long time to create so not sure how often I will be able to join in but just had to do something.

I used Winter Wishes rubber stamp & A Freebie digi Christmas Tree. My Christmas Tree didn't have a trunk or any snow to it so I placed the snow from the base of the post box below it and then drew in my own trunk. It is not very clear in the photo but I added 3d sparkle snow to all the snowy areas.

I am still awaiting my consultants getting together but I had a head to toe check up yesterday (very intrusive of my personal being lol) and nothing new was found so got to be thankful for that.

Until next time, keep warm.

A Birthday Card

Good afternoon all. It is a lovely bright day here, great for those of you that are out Christmas shopping which I haven't even thought about starting yet!!

I didn't think I had anything to post but I just remembered I have a few cards that have never been posted and this one was made for my dear friend Karen whose birthday was back in August. Karen is mad on bears and has a cat just like this one.

I am so sorry I have not been around blogland for a while, I am having some health issue's which are making crafting impossible. My hands have swollen so they are not much use for anything really, then there is the constant headaches, those only happen when I can stay awake long enough to be able to do something!! All in all not much use to anyone or anything at the moment.

I am hoping to see another new consultant next week who will be working with my other consultants to try and work out some treatment for me. Here is hoping they can sort something and soon.

Anyhow I just wanted you to know I am visiting when I can but not leaving comments as it takes so long and is a bit painful too so you will have to put up with me just haunting you all for now.
