Commissioned Christmas Cards and update on Hospital

The frost of the last week seems to be giving slightly, but its still very very cold, at the bottom of the page I have put a picture I took yesterday of the trees next door in the hoar frost. We had have a hoar frost for three/four days so this is just a build up over the last few days. At least the sun has been shinning today not that it made it any warmer but its nice to see there is something up there that shines after days of fog.
Today I am bring you some cards I was commissioned to make the green card at the top of the page and this red card are for grand children and the other three are for her children, she does not do Christmas and these are the only cards she will be sending this Christmas.
I use on both card a 3d image of father Christmas. with shiny paper backing and then finished off both cards with peel offs and matching ribbons.

On this card I used images from the Art Deco Christmas Ladies CD. and finished off with gems and silver peel offs and white ribbon.

This card I used a Joanne Sheen image from one of her Cd's, placed it on silver card and finished off with peel offs and green/blue ribbon, the ribbon had a green/blue sheen on it which on blue card looked more blue than green, but when placed on green card looks more green than blue

I stamped the bubble stamp and used white/green heat embossing powders on black card, with a white and green paper worded background again finished off with silver peel offs .

Update on the hospital, I went yesterday to the RUH (Royal United hospital) in Bath, he is prepared to take my gall bladder out even though I am not "Text book", is everything so black and white with these surgeons? I am me not a text book and I don't like the idea of conforming to a text book. Now I have to have a scan/x ray on the pancreas and bladder first to check that they are OK, if they are clear then he will operate. At least something might be done now.
I hope you are not too snowed in and keeping warm and you have enjoyed visiting my blog today. I look forward to seeing you in blog land again soon, in the meantime time take care
