WOW!  I can't believe it is only a month until Christmas.  Where has the time gone?  It seems to me that as a person gets older the faster the time goes by.  Christmas is always a busy time of the year and it is so easy to get caught up in that busie-ness to the point you lose sight of what we really are celebrating...the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  Don't let the things of this old world take away the joy and celebration of His birth.

This card was made for a gentleman that is battling cancer for the second time.  The Teapot Challenge decided he could use some cheering up so we were to make cards with Jack Russell dogs, his favourite, or gardens.  I don't have any JR stamps so I went with flowers and a humming bird.  I tried to give it a more masculine feel by using softer, warm colours.  The base is craft layered with Stampin Up designer paper.  The single strip is also SU paper.  Added some velvet ric rac down the side.  The image is stamped with black Momento and coloured with Copics markers and layered on craft card stock and is on dimensionals.  Added some white Opal to the flower centres.  The hummingbird was stamped, coloured with Copics and cut out and mounted on dimensionals.  Added a sentiment and brads to finish it off.  Also added diamond Stickles to the throat of the hummingbird but it doesn't show up in the picture.  Hope you enjoy it.  Thanks for dropping by.
