Christmas Pudding

At last I can sit for long enough to make a card in several stages, my sympathy goes out to those who have chronic back pain and not just an injury like me.I found it so difficult to get from lying to sitting or standing and spent days in bed lying flat or being helped up to take some exercise in the form of walking. It's still difficult to sit for long as my muscles and ligaments seem to lock, I can't wait to be fully mobile again.

This card is for a couple of challenges.

Stamp from Magnolia
Paper from Nitwit Collections

The Challenge at CD Sunday this week is ring of roses. I am trying out different styles of  invitation and thank you cards for my son and his girlfriends wedding later this year. I want to keep the designs reasonably simple so that the task doesn't become a nightmare.
The above card is a thank you card, by saving the layout into my graphics programme I can vary the design without too much difficulty.

The card below, same layout is for the "hen night" invitations as yet I don't know whether  the message on the front will  be " invitation" or " hen night" so that is still to be added.

Both of these images came from Just Inklined The Next Big Thing CD Rom.

Little Drummer Boy

I'm sorry my sentiment doesn't show well using black on dark blue wasn't a good idea.
