Christmas Joy

It's been a whirlwind around here lately. Had a lovely visit with our son in Boston and arrived home yesterday afternoon. I started laundry and ran to the grocery. My daughter called said she had an accident at work and she needed me to take her to the ER. So off I went and several hours later she is fine and taking today off of work. She should be back at it tomorrow. My MIL is still hospitalized and as soon as we finish work tomorrow we will be off to help and visit with her for the weekend. Christmas may be very sad this year. I have absolutely nothing done. Maybe I will just take everyone out for a shopping spree after Christmas. Is at down at my desk tonight and spotted this image that I had printed. I decided I needed a little craft therapy. Life seems out of control right now.

The image is the progressive stamp this month at Imagine That! I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I usually post the sketch but kind of in a hurry so I can pack and get ready for tomorrow. The sketch also came with a bingo compnent: I used ribbon, embossing and flowers. The ribbon is a textured ribbon toward the bottom of the card under the tag and flowers. Kind of difficult to see. The image is die cut with Spellbinders Labels 13 and the sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders tag die.

I am entering these challenges:

That's it for today. Hope your weekend is special. Not much crafting here as I will be sitting in a hospital all weekend. Take care.

OMGoodness Donna this card is so adorable. I love the darling image and your layout of the paper. The tag is perfect and the flowers are so pretty. Thanks for stopping by. I have to tell you I have no idea why my word verification is coming up and I tried to change it and I have it on NO so it should not be doing this. So I did a comment on my blog and just hit PUBLISH THIS cannot remember just what it said and it posted my comment with out doing the word verification. Just wanted to let you know.
Hugs, Pat

Love your card Donna; bright and cheery! Such an adorable image and great take on the sketch!

Don't worry about the shopping --Wrap up pictures of the items you were going to give; or give gift certificates this year. Your family will understand.
