Christmas Card #10

A really quick one tonight. Just got back from hospital. Mum has been moved back onto the main ward now and has had most of the wires and tubes removed.  She has been out of bed and had a little walk up the corridor but was really tired so we only stayed 45 mins and came home. 

My card tonight is the quickest I've ever made I think.  It's for the Bah Humbug Challenge which this week is metallics.
I simply cut a mirri card mat with my lacey squares  die and stamped onto the white card with the dove and peace stamp from Recollections 'Celebrate the season' set and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then added the metal snowflake and a few clear gems.

Good to hear your mum is doing ok :)

Love the card Debs, and considering its mirri board its photographed brilliantly.

Metallics - I might make something for that! ;)

sometimes the most simple cards (and quick ones) have a lot of impact and we just cant believe our luck! :) lol.

Best wishes to your mum Debs - sorry to hear she's been so poorly.
Your card may be simple but sometimes we need something that all just comes together beautifully and easily when time is limited and stress levels are high. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
