Jingle Belles Card 42

I finally got my card done ... 
This is my second post today and earlier I was still looking for my inspiration 
This weeks challenge at Jingle Belles is to make a card based on any Christmas holiday song or carol and I think my card speaks for itself ... easy to guess huh?

... the music sheet gives it away ...

"Oh Christmas Tree"
 ... covered in mica flakes and perhaps not the usual colour DP for Christmas ... It was a scrap I had and I just love the colour 

I know I've used this folded tree design before ... I don't tire of it ... it's easy and so effective ... for the trunk I used some corrugated cardboard ... painted with distress stains

Till soon ... have a lovely day/evening

A Thank you ...

Hello sweet friends ...
I am still here ... and my back is improving but my hip is still a problem ... Unfortunately I am not very good with painkillers ... they mess with my head ... even the smallest dose seems to make me groggy ... so here I am trying to clear the fog and come up with a card for this weeks' challenge at Jingle Bells ... without success ... Then the post arrived and Wow!! just look what I got from my lovely and very talented friend .. Ira 

Look at that adorable cat Ira made me!! I just love it!

and these beautiful satin gloves .. to handle the cat ha! ha! (or to wear with my Chanel No. 5) 

... and that is not all ... she even sent me some gorgeous papers and beautiful die cuts ...

I am doing a happy dance (one legged of course) ...
Thank you so much Ira .... you really made my day and I am so grateful 

I also have a Thank you to say to lovely Linda of Hands to work Hearts to Love for passing on this Butterfly Award to me

I have to answer 12 questions ....
  1. My favourite colour ... I really don't have one .. it depends on what it's for
  2. My favourite song .... (difficult)... but I love "I vow to thee my country"
  3. My favourite dessert ... Anything with almonds or marzipan
  4. What ticks me off at the moment ... My Hip!!
  5. My favourite pet ... Has to be a dog
  6. Black or White ... For what?
  7. Biggest fear ... Heights!!! 
  8. Best feature ... My son
  9. Everyday attitude ... Thank God I'm upright and breathing
  10. What is perfection ... To love and be loved
  11. Guilty pleasure ... I can't tell you that!
  12. When I'm upset I ... Retreat into myself

So now I have to pass this on but there are so many of you that I would like to pass this to so please feel free to take it  ... 
I will be back tomorrow with another challenge at City Crafter ... thank you all so much for your well wishes ... for your comments and for visiting me ... What would I do without you?

Take care
