Visions of Santa - IAS #98

Hello my friends. This should say Happy Sunday, but sadly I am a few days late getting my post up. This last week has been a bit hectic. I had a back procedure on December 2 and spent a few days recovering and not doing very much. I am most happy to say that it was completely successful. I have had low back pain for years and it had gotten progressively worse until I knew I had to do something. My doctor referred me to a pain management doctor who was able to diagnose my problem and then fix it. At least for now. We don't know how long the relief will last, but I count every day a blessing and take it one day at a time. I'm told if the pain reoccurs, then he can do the procedure again since we know that what he did was the right thing and brought me relief. I'm doing PT twice a week for the next six weeks and that seems to be helping also. God is good.

I do have a card to share with you for the International Art & Soul month-long December challenge. It's Anything Goes - With a Bow. So you can make any project you like as long as you include a bow on it. This challenge will be up for the whole month of December so you have plenty of time to hop on over and play along.




This is one of the slim line cards that seems to be all the rage right now. It was fairly easy to throw together. I used Stampin Up Visions of Santa stamp set for the images and sentiment and the Santa & Co. designer paper that matches it. The bow is a die made with Stampin Up Real Red as well as for the mats. The Copic markers I used were E23; E50, E51; R24, R35, R39; W3, W7; T10.

That's it for today. I hope that you are staying well and have no COVID issues.
