Jingle Belles card 44...

Can you believe it? 
Where have the weeks gone? Card 44 and Christmas is just around the corner ... I'm so glad I kept up with the Jingle Belles Rock challenge ... and this week the theme is "Not a creature was stirring   ... " Include any sort of creature on your card ... well that just about covers everything huh? So without further ado ... here is my (very quickly made) card ...


This pretty paper is from the Melissa Frances range Deck the Halls
And my chipboard pieces are from PaperMania


I used Diamond Dust twinklets for the snow and the lace and twine is from my stash ...

On the news front ... well my hip and back are much improved but I now have a swollen and very painful foot ... don't laugh when I say I have gout! ... No I am not a heavy drinker which seems to be the first thing that comes to everyones mind when the "G" word is mentioned ... Can I hear you laughing? Anyway I can assure you it is not nice ... and the pain extends right up my leg ... Did you know that the things to avoid are what I would have classed as healthy ... for example porridge ... asparagus, cauliflower, shellfish ... Not that it's helped ... because I have avoided these things ... which leads my doctor to think that it is genetic ... 
No, life hasn't been treating me kindly emotionally or physically but there is something good on the horizon ... remember I told you my Uncle died some weeks back? Well my dear Aunt has decided to take a cruise next year and she is taking me with her ... to Norway! Yep, I'm off to see the Fjords on my first ever cruise ... with my 85 year old Aunt ... I feel like Amy in "Little Women" ... just a whole lot older ha!ha! 
... And before I go I have to show you a beautiful card I received from my dear friend Kirsty together with a whole bunch of brown lunch bags for me to play with ...


Thanks so much my friend ... I really do appreciate your thoughtfulness 

I wish you all a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me such sweet comments 
Till soon

No laughs from me here Ros, gout can be horribly painful (my dad suffered from it every now and then). Hope you'll be on the mend real soon! On to your card: love that paper, makes the snowman stand out so pretty! Enjoy the goodies Kirsty sent you, sweet girl! Hugs, Ira

I am so sorry to hear about your "G" word.. And I am not laughing. I really don't know much about gout. Is there something they can do for that..

How cool a cruise.. You are going to love it.. I have been on 7 cruises. I think it is the best way to vacation..

That card Kirsty sent you is so beautiful.. She is such a sweetheart!!

Im so jealous! You are soo prepared for the holidays.. I just made 25 Christmas cards for a friend and I'm sick of them already! Love that you've stuck with it and given such great ideas for cards!(I think Ill have to scrap lift some of your ideas!)
I feel for you being in pain. Seems we are in the same boat..I've been having pain issues in my legs too. Its very frustrating so I wish you pain free days.. feel better my friend!
