Merry Christmas!

With this card, I think I will give up on making Christmas cards this year.  The creativity just isn't in me.  I finally unpacked some ink and embossing powder to add some gold to the card.  I just wasn't pleased with my first 2 attempts.  This set of stamps is by Inkadinkadoo.

Since I will be preparing to have surgery next week, I need to get a few things ready so I won't have to do them while recovering from surgery over the holidays.  As a good friend said, "This will be a distraction from the first Christmas without my dear husband."  I do miss him a lot all the time.


  1. Of course you miss Dick - you wouldn't be our Velda if you didn't. And you are allowed to forget about christmas cards and even christmas this need to stress about not getting cards the way you'd like them.....just live each day as it comes and use your energy to get yourself well first of all...the rest will follow.

  2. Remember the good times and share the memories ... the start of a New Year and a new beginning is just around the corner. Good luck with your surgery and all the best for the New Year.
