Christmas Card #11

Sorry for the break in posts. My neck really started to bother me and I just couldn't stand sitting at the computer. I'm happy to report that my neck is doing better. I had an appointment to see the doctor on Friday for some blood work and a check up before this neck thing even started. I ended up having to get an x-ray & an ultrasound done as well, both of which had NOTHING to do with my neck. I should get the results today and am hoping this is the first step in feeling better. Enough about that you're here to see a Christmas card, right?! Well this week we were given the following sketch:

and here's my creation:

Isn't it cute? I just love this image! Quick story - one of the things I love about blogging and being a part of different groups is the people that you meet. I've talked with so many different people and it's so fun to get to know each one. I joined a image swap on the Christmas Stampin All Year Long group on PCP and was partnered with Linda. We've kept in touch and swapped some other images since then. This last time she sent me two actual stamps and this is one of them! Isn't that too cool - she's just so sweet and I'm glad we've met. Okay enough about that... Here's a close up of the image:
