More Christmas cards!

I've finally made a couple more Christmas cards........I don't think I'll be able to make all my cards this year at this rate!

I used sketch #141 from the CPS blog for the first card. All cardstock is by Stampin' Up, holly leaf stamps by Fiskars, tree stamp by Stamp Rosa and ink is Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy.




The 2nd card uses this week's sketch, Kazan's #39 from the 2Sketches 4You blog. I only used one stamp, the greeting, from a Stampin' Up set. The wreath is a Francheville die-cut, also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Nestabilities die.

Just a quick update on my progress........I had a Porta Cath inserted in my arm last Monday and my first Chemo treatment is this coming Monday. I've been told I'll be there at the hospital for most of the day and will take home another lot of chemo which drip feeds through a pump over the following 48hrs....ick! At least I only have to do this every fortnight, so fingers crossed it's not too bad. I'm not sure how often my blog will get updated while I'm getting treatment, so if I'm MIA you'll know why! I'll be sure to keep you all posted when I can though, thanks for stopping by today!

Will be thinking of you. Was planning to ring you and will try later in the week maybe Thursday or Friday...you could stock up on fruit tingles (great for nausea)peppermint also in tea form or mints to suck also helpful. Take a cool washer with you everywhere, your head will get very hot. Will try to ring tomorrow but have some issues myself keeping me very busy, rest assured I am thinking of you often. Marion
