Christmas Bells!

Hello All, hoping your Sunday is going well, ours is grey and raining, but cooler.

Alistair has a cold and has been coughing quite a bit so decided to stay in bed, he has been a bit hangy over the last week and clearly not himself, so much so that I commented that he probably shouldn't go canyoning tomorrow with the "boy" and get even more cold.  I needed to go out for a bit of shopping for bits and pieces I'd forgotten yesterday, and you'll never guess who I saw walking along the road when I was driving back, yes that's right, Alistair. He wasn't out that long, but I had to laugh because this was so that he could get out to play tomorrow, if he goes out for a wee while just now, I'll think he was fit for going out with the chums.  Aren't they something else.  Men I mean.  Did you know some company are making a flu remedy called "Man Flu", I saw it in the supermarket when buying paracetamols, I wonder what it has in it to make it different form any other remedy? I didn't buy it.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on yesterday's card, I had made it for The Ribbon Girl Challenge and when I went to link it up, found I was too late the submissions had closed, so I had to come back here quickly and delete the link.  I'm telling my brain is getting worse.  When I was leaving the supermarket I put the car into gear and let the brake off, and sat there wondering why the car wasn't moving, then realised I'd not switched the ignition on. Daft or what! Just as well I wasn't on a hill.

I have a new card today which is going into a challenge blog that is still current and here it is;


I've given this a bit of a vintage look
Bell image from Just Inklined, digi stamp
Promarkers
Sizzix Die
SB Corner Die from Frosty Forms
Sentiment from my Christmas box
First Edition Christmas Village Papers
Core'Dinations and Bazzil Card
Red Seambinding from The Ribbon Girl
Gold Lace from my box
Gems from Hobby House
Stickles for sparkle
All onto Kraft Card
I enjoyed colouring in this image, not too may fiddly bits, hope you like it.
Off for a coffee before I tackle the dinner,  enjoy the remainder of your weekend, I've got my physio appointment tomorrow morning for the tennis elbow, hopefully it won't be too painful, I'll let you know.

Hugs Kate x

Good Morning Kate! Yes it is morning here where I live although I must admit late morning! Your Christmas card is gorgeous. I hope when my leg mends I can get going on some Christmas cards too.
I do like the traditional colors best of all. Your mind sounds like mine - oh well. I hope that Alistair is getting better and you do not get this bug.
