Sweet Trio

Despite spending a week in Kings College hospital recently and recovering at home from the brain surgery - yes, there is still some left to be operated on, lol! I have actually had a lovely time lately,

My  recent letter sent to  Papercraft Essentials magazine was awarded the star letter prize - an amazing  parcel of crafty stash  from Craft Creations arrived just as I was discharged from the hospital - what a fabulous welcome home!

I also recently won the challenge at Dream Valley and the prize was a choice from the wonderful range of digi images at All Dressed Up - I chose 'Three Little Christmas Girls'

aren't they just gorgeous!  I made them into a card for a recent challenge at Passion for Promarkers , but didn't get it posted in time for the challenge as I was attached to my hospital bed at the time!Don't let that stop you though, there is a new challenge from the Team 1 girls this week, so head over here. But I decided they were just too cute not to post them at all, so here are my Three Little Christmas Girls carolling their hearts out!

The papers are  from one of the Nitwit pads available at LOTV
The embossing was done using a Fiskars plate - so old now!

The lace is from Trimcraft

Kraft card,button, gems and lamp post are from my stash

I've also used the 'Musical Notes' die from Tattered Lace and 'A2 Scalloped Borders One' die from Spellbinders Borderabilities and a Hobbycraft snowflake punch

I also got  a Top 3 place at Tiddly Inks, I hope you don't think I'm showing off! I'm just so happy that other people still think my crafty efforts are worthy as there was a time when I wondered if I'd be able to get back to card-making at all.
