This Yule card is for a special forum friend of mine who gives me inspiration in her art, she picks me up when she knows I'm down, and she offers support from afar - and I've never even met her. I hope she likes it.
All stamps - Cherry Pie - apart from the swirls in the background which is actually the lower half of the Father Christmas stamp I used a few postings ago. The inks are Tim Holtz distress inks.

Whilst rummaging through my stamp boxes - I found an old Christmas stamp I haven't used this year yet. Its called For The Memories and is made by Stamps Happen, I think. The eagle eyed among you will note my inchy from the challenge - I've used the spotlight punching technique and included the inchy.
The words on the image say:
Make the moments matter - for the memories you give,
will be with them forever, for as long as they may live

I love the way this card has turned out - I think I'll be doing some more on a similar theme. Doesn't it give it a lovely wintery feel?

Kate on her blog here is asking for help from card makers to send a card to a child in Great Ormond Street Hospital so that they can send it to their helpers or family members. If you could spare a card you'll find all the details on Kate's blog.

I've used Holiday Treasures from the latest SU catalogue. The stamps are old SU stamps - from the Etruscan set.
Update for Tara
Her lump has been confirmed, as much as they can, as a fatty lump and she is going to have surgery on it on Monday 17th November. As I'm singing in an opera next week I couldn't face her going in for the op until the singing was over. Thank you for all your good wishes.
SOMETHING TO KEEP YOU WARM

We took Tara to the specialist yesterday and he did a biopsy. His initial findings, he tentatively said, were that he things the lump is a fatty tumour and not a malignant one. We will get the test results back on Tuesday.
If it is a fatty lump - we can operate and he thinks the operation should be successful although it may be interfering with a lot of blood vessels in the leg.
If it does prove to be malignant, then there is nothing we can do and we have to make some decisions.
He seemed hopeful though so we're sticking to that at the moment.
She's fine in herself, although a bit sore and swollen after yesterday, but she thanks you all for your good vibes.
