Just a few cards

Good afternoon lovely people
I expect like me you are all very busy with Christmas preparations and lots to do with little time...

Anyway I thought I'd pop in and share a bunch of cards I put together using odd bits of CS to blend and splatter on


I don't think I've used that stamp before
 

Why a kitty on here? Well this is for the lovely couple who adopted my Pushka and regularly send me photos and updates of how she is doing... She's become one spoilt cat I can tell you!


A little glittered foam die cut...


More stamps that I don't think ever got used before



 Thank you for all your kind wishes for my DH ... He is home and recovering after his surgey, still quite sore and very bruised. He had to stay in hospital a little longer than anticipated and because his BP was low, they wouldn't even let him come with me to see my consultant in the same hospital.

Fortunately Mikey was with me ... Sometimes it's hard to take it all in on your own. Seems whilst the spinal arthritis is not a serious concern at my age, the damage it has done to a couple of the discs is severe. So the operation will be a little more complex and I should be scheduled for surgery in January. I'm waiting till my DH is a little better....

I hope you are all well and I wish you a beautiful day

These are so joyful. Great variety of stamps and the blue and green backgrounds are a nice bright element for winter dreary days. Hugs to you and best wishes for a speedy recovery to hubby.

So glad to hear that your husband is home now - even if it took a little longer. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for your surgery in January, too. But now on to your absolutely gorgeous set of cards! I'm speechless - I'm so amazed at how you used supplies that are not Christmas at first sight and how you made that work. Just perfect!

Glad hubby is home recovering & that your surgery will be soon. So wish I could be there in person to at least give a hug & make some tea for you. Oh wow, Ros--I do so love your style, my talented friend! These are all gorgeous & neat stamps that needed to be used! I'm thinking those are leaves you used as trees--so creative & perfect! Love the glittery branch & the kitty one will be treasured, I'm sure! Thinking of you & sending holiday love & hugs, Greta

Thank you Ros for sharing your update about your kitties new home, your DH and you :-) So glad your husband is home and mending and that you are closer to getting all fixed up too.
Every one of your gorgeous backgrounds stamped and heat embossed are absolutely beautiful CAS Christmas designs. TFS my friend. Wishing you a quiet, but Merry Christmas and soon a Happy and much healthier New Year. Hugs...

A simply gorgeous array for us, Ros! Thank you! You know how much I love these colors!! Thank you for the update on DH, too. I'm glad to hear he is on the mend now, but I'm sorry that your surgery is going to be more complicated that you first thought. Between Ian and Mikey, you are in good hands, and you have lots of bloggie friends sending prayers and positive thoughts. Let us know when you have the date certain so we can redouble our best wishes!! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell

Blue and green -- my favorite background color combo. And you do make some beautiful backgrounds! Not only that, but you have some gorgeous stamps to use with them. These are all so pretty, Ros! Your kitty adopter will get a big smile out of her card. Sweet! It's good that your DH is home. That's an improvement, even with the soreness and bruising. I hope it's all behind him soon and he'll be better than ever. January is not that far away, so you'll be feeling much better for 2018. Something to look forward to. Merry Christmas!

Such a beautiful collection of holiday cards, Ros! The softly ink blended backgrounds are fabulous with the spatters, the heat-embossing, the die-cut, and the adorable kitty!
Glad to hear your DH is recovering at home now.
And thank you for your kind comments on my cards.
