Blessed Christmas

Hi Friends!
To those that wanted to know my prgress....
I went back to the hospital yesterday for my first checkup since being out of hospital. It wasn't the best news that I would have liked. The Urologist said that because the cancer had gone outside the kidney and into the fat surrounding and the renal vein it would be more than likely  the cancer will return. At the moment they have removed all the cancer that they could see and say I am cancer free at this time. The good thing is that they have a new chemo treatment for this that is meant to be very good so that is a plus if it does rear it's ugly head again.

Now onto my card....This is my first Christmas card. I thought I had better get started as I am so slow these days. I used the new Stampin Up Designer papers and cardstock and coloured Tilda with distress inks. This time I didn't make the flowers and have ones on that friends have given me (I'm very lucky).
The Tilda I used is called "Tilda with Violin" and can be brought at Diana's store here.
