Tilda & Present

I am back after having a fabulous 3 week s away at our house in Cyprus, 2 weeks with hubby, then 2 friends joined me for a week & boy did we laugh. This week has been manic as hubby has had hopefully his final operation on his knee & we can start looking forward to the New year, as this one has been so awful for us both.
Anyway, I made this card ages ago, but just didnt get around to posting it. I used Tilda on the Roof & placed her on top of an old stamp from Christmas 2009. Coloured with Prismas. Mounted onto a Spellbinders Nestie with Aged Scarlet Frantage around the edges. The Christmas die is a Marianne, again with lots of Frantage added. Vintage seam binding from stash, as are the flowers, ribbon & twine. The ticket is a freebie from blogland a long time ago.

Hi Dawn

Strange but 2013 has been a bad year for quite a few people I know "health wise" and "job wise".

Let us hope for much better things for everyone in 2014!!

I hope your hubby's operation has gone well and it does turn out to be his last.

Great Christmas card. Love the colour combo.

Love Jules xx
