Christmas Card Monday

Hi everyone, and I hope your day is as happy as a Monday can be! I for once and glad that Monday is here because that means my doctor's office is open today and I can call to get in to physical therapy and hopefully find some relief for my neck. The stiffness in my neck isn't near as bad as it has been, but the tingly sensation has moved into my arm. Everything I read on line about this is pointing toward a herniated disc, but I also read that it could be due to muscle spasms and I know I've been having a lot of those. In any case, I will be calling today and doing something besides complaining!

Well, today is Christmas card day and the card I have to show you today is one I saw at a scrapbook store and I just thought it was so cute that I came home and CASED it!

Isn't it a cute way to use your scalloped circle nestabilities? I sponged a little darker green around the edges and popped up each layer with pop dots. I had a little package of some red velvet bows and I attached one of those to the bottom of the wreath.

The "very merry" is from Stampin Up. I rubbed some white craft ink over the embossed snowflake background. Anyway, I thought it was a cute and very quick card to make!

Today is the challenge at the Squigglefly blog, so I've got to get by there to check it out. Big things are happening at Squigglefly this week. There will be sneak peeks coming on Wednesday, and a blog hop on Friday with a wonderful grand prize up for grabs!
Squigglefly isn't leaving you with nothing new until then though, go by and see the wonderful new images that have just been added! I know you will love the fairies and there is a beautiful cornucopia that is perfect for Thanksgiving!

Okay, I've talked your ear off long enough. Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

could it maybe be carpal tunnel???? no matter. i just hope you get it taken care and feel better soon. nothing worse than an underlying, annoying freakiin' pain in the neck!

almost like a hubby at times - only kidding!

Simply stunning!

Hopefully the Dr will give you some relief. Being in pain is no fun.
