Passion For Promarkers - Christmas In July.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I have a week off work this week but my Hubby is under the weather, he has Cellulitis in his leg ....again.He has not suffered from it since he had his veins stripped, but he looks like he yet again may need vascular surgery once the leg is better, I am wondering how many times you can have your veins stripped...
Anyhoo on to why I am here, we have a new challenge for you this morning at the Passion For Promarkers Challenge blog.
Our theme this week has been set by the lovely HAZEL with the theme of CHRISTMAS IN JULY.

A close up of my jolly santa, I love this stamp, he is such a good size.
A close up of Santa`s beard, it is really hard to get the sparkle pen to show.

And a sideways view.
I have used the same holly die inside the card too.
Thanks so much for popping by.
I am hoping to get out today , all depends on how hubbys leg is.I am sending him back to the doctors too as his medication is almost finished.
Enjoy your day.
Hugs Nic.

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

Nic, I'm SO overdue a visit to your blog! Hope you're well hun and sorry to hear hubby is feeling rotten. I hope they can sort his cellulitis out soon. He'll be on AB's for the Cellulitis right? He should be, but I remember salt foot baths were always a soothing and comforting measure too when I was nursing. So worth trying that to ease the tightness and discomfort. Hope he's well again soon hun.

Love your gorgeous card Nic. You know I bought that Stampendous sentiment after the first time I saw you use it! I just loved it, absolutely and completely! Makes me smile every time and what a perfect image to pair it with! Love the background dies, lovely. Aren't Promarkers fab for colouring pearls. Done that before too, works a treat. Hugs, Wends xoxo
