RUDOLF CHALLENGE CARD FOR APRIL 2015

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing for a day or so, but
I have had some sad news from my eldest sister,
and didn't feel much like blogging.
You may remember those of you who have known me longer, that she had a brain tumor about 5
years ago and came through that okay except for
lots of meds she has to take.
Well now she has told me she has bowl cancer.
So lets hope the outcome of this op when she has
it turns out as good.
Her hubby had a similar op about 15 years ago,
and has been fine ever since.
I don't know they have had their fare share of
health probs between them, especially my sister.

Today I have my card for the Rudolf Challenge
for April, which starts on the 25th of each 
month and ends on the end of the month.
It's a jolly good way of making your Christmas
cards before the rush at the end of the year.
If you would like to join us, details of the 
challenge at the bottom of my post.




This is a 8"x8" size card.
Not really pleased with the result of this card.
I used the Sue Wilson embossing folder 
Swirling Holly for the background.
The poinsettia is a made from the Sizzix Die
called Susan Garden.
Should have made it with paper not card as I 
am not happy with it, so memo to ones self to
use paper next time.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny, Firstly, I was so sorry to hear your sad news about your Sister, my thoughts and prayers are with you all for a good outcome to the op. They have truly had some bad luck indeed, but your Sister should be heartened with the outcome her hubby's op had and science has come on in leaps and bounds in the last 15 years. My prayers are with you all.
Secondly, I love your Christmas card, I especially love how you have outlined some of the embossing, it is so very effective, I love it !!.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Jenny, Sorry to hear about your sister, but pray that the outcome will be a good one for her. She must be an extremely strong person to have faced all this ordeal, and I'm glad you can be 'there' for her. Support at such times is so welcome. Am loving the background of your pretty Rudy card...and that awesome poinsettia is gorgeous against the golden swirls. DH feels ok for a bit, then it comes back. He sees the Gastro's physician ass't on Monday, earliest they could work him in. I'm not happy with this, but not much else to do. Hope your wkend goes well. TFS & Hugs
