Jingles Belles Rock

Hello my friends ... 
thought you'd like to know that my friend loved her Anniversary card and gift ... I saw her on Thursday then went on to my group ... they were thrilled with the box I made for our lovely friend that died and we filled it with pretty tags each with a message on ... Friday was not a very nice day for me ... but in the evening I went along to a Stampin' Up demo and craft evening given by my lovely blog friend Keren - it was so good to see her and the evening was a treat ... 
Then yesterday I saw that I was awarded a TOP MOUSE over at WaltzingMouse challenge blog ... another treat ... Thank You so much ladies of WaltzingMouse  ... you've no idea how much I needed a boost ... 
So, what do you do when you're down? ... you create ... (if you can) ... and I wanted to keep up with the Jingle Belles Rock challenge which this week is to include Text in your card ... You all know I love text so it was a pleasure to lose myself in creating ... It was too late to photograph yesterday  so I left it till today ... This is my card for week 9 of the challenge ...


This is all digital ... a mix of papers from Digital House Designs ... who have had a whole month of $1 offers which finish at the end of the February so if you are interested you need to hop over and check them out ...  The little deer (covered in text) is a digital from Webster's Pages ... another of my favourites and the pretty lace came all the way from Texas from sweet Chriss Blagrave ... I adore this lace


Not sure if you can see the glitter I added ... and the little pine cones are stamped on using crimson ink  everything else if from my stash ... And now  ... I am feeling better ...

Till soon ... keep safe

~ Ros ~
