Another simple Christmas card.

I haven't managed to blog much this week due to working full-time but I found this card that's only got as far as being photographed. So here it is now.

I used :-
Image :- Clarity stamps.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment :- Heritage rubber stamp company.
Glamous Dust, Candi, gems, ribbon, tag punch.

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Cute Card Thursday :- Bling it up.
Creative Card Crew :- Christmas.

My little pile of Christmas cards is building up slowly. I've got 26 now so that's quite good for me at this time of year!

The next card I have to make is a Sympathy card. My friend's sister died in a card accident yesterday. Her neighbour phoned to tell me that they had just left in horrible rainy weather to go to be with her Mum and Dad in Aberdeen. I really feel for them all especially her niece who is just in her early teens. I sent a text to my friend and as I knew would be the case they were all in shock. I said I'd speak to her when she felt up to it. It's horrible when something like this happens.  The photos in the papers were awful. I think the weather, lots of rain and surface water, must have had a lot to do with the accident but one of the girls in the shop said that particular bit of the road had a lot of potholes too. It's only a minor road and the speed limit at that part is only 30mph so I don't imagine she or the other driver was speeding.

I'm not sure if I'm going to need another Sympathy card as one of the girls at work was convinced that a lady who's been really ill had died. I'll know tomorrow if she's right or not. I hate this because as sure as you need one Sympathy card you usually seem to need more!

Sorry to be a bit down today. It doesn't help that my nephew would have been 30 on Sunday past but he was killed on a motorbike 10 years ago on the 9th of September. I often think of him as he was just about 3 months younger than my younger daughter. He was a lovely lad and he did pack a lot into his 20 years and I'm glad I was his auntie.

Thanks for looking at my card and I'll be back tomorrow with another card and no doom and gloom.
