Simon Says - Show us What Makes you Happy

Well, what makes me happy at this time of year, is getting my Christmas cards made! And so for this week's Simon Says Challenge  "show us whatever makes you happy", I thought I'd show you one of my quick and simple makes this year - with all that is going on I haven't done any really fancy ones yet!

This is a new Stampotique stamp - Jo Capper-Sandon's "Chilly" snowman, who came to live with me just this week!
 The background paper is by Paperartsy and the little Happy Christmas stamp is from Impression Obsession.
I've done a few of these, very slightly different - think I'm up to about 40 now, so hopefully only half as many to go - must write the list out so I know how many I need to get to!!

Hope you are all ok.  I had the appointment through for the neuro clinic referral about my eye - next March! In the meantime I have been phoned by my GP surgery who have heard from the hospital, and have to go on Tuesday for some more blood tests etc to make sure there are no other underlying health issues. I got my glasses - trying to adapt to the distance ones, but the reading pair weren't right so have had to be sent for adjustment!  The saga continues.....

Hi Helen

On the positive side if your appointment is not till next Marchm they can'e be overly worried. I think they do blood test as a matter of normaility nowadays, I was amazed having them done when I went for a recent eye appointment.

Loving your "simple" blue Chrismtas card. Blue seems to be the 'in' colour this year.

And yippe, 3 - 0 and without Stevie. I to was worrited, but equally worried that we always seen so reliant on him. Puts a huge burden on his shoulders, but he has such a wonderful ability to lift the team and the fans. Just like Istanbul, when was it 2005.
