Better late than never right?

Hi everyone

I know it's SUPER late, but I've been pretty unwell the last couple of weeks, and on top of that, my knee injury flared up and pretty much stopped me from sitting at my craft desk, because it really hurts it sitting up - so it was couch or bed for me, I hate being immobile! :( it's a bit better today though and I have an appointment this week to get referred back to the surgeon, so hopefully it'll all get fixed soon. 

My woes and tribulations are nothing, NOTHING, compared to the tragedy that happened in Conneticut this past few days...I can only imagine the horror these people are going through...keeping them in my thoughts and prayers...having a loved one torn away from you through senseless acts of terrorism is one of the worst things in the world :( Remember the victims, and their families.

Onto crafting matters. This fortnight's challenge over at Forever Friends (yes, I started on Monday, I'm so late :( but better late than never!) is Christmas Cards. We are sponsored by this challenge by two lovely sponsors: 

Randomly Selected Winner
who are providing our lucky winner with 7 digis from their fabulous store

Forever Friends Favourite
who are giving our lucky favourite this set of clear stamps AND a personalised "handmade by" stamp

So get entering because those be some great prizes :)

So here's my card, using the wonderful Bugaboo image Fancy SB Christmas - isn't she so cute! I love the sunbonnet images, I think they're adorable :)

Image - Fancy SB Christmas - Bugaboo Stamps
