Merry Kiss-Mas

I started making Christmas cards again after a brief break.  My creativity recently left me when I found out that I have what appears to be early stage breast cancer.  Although it appears we caught it early, when you hear your doctor say "You have cancer.", it stops you in your tracks. I have my first appointment tomorrow with a top notch breast surgeon that I researched thoroughly for and I am confident that I will make a full recovery. Last month, August 17th I saw the Cas-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs blog hop and I was reminded to make my mammogram appointment.  I had my mammogram on August 23rd and it was abnormal.  What if I had ignored that reminder from Michele and the gals at Cas-ual Fridays? So if your mammogram is due or past due....don't delay.  Make the appointment TODAY.

The stamps I used to make this card are a stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays called Mistletoe and Holly.  I just loved this set as soon as I saw it.  I am entering it in their Dimension and Bling Challenge.

For dimension I use the corrugated red cardboard. The bling is hard to photograph but several of the holly berries are small red rhinestones and the white ribbon on the bottom is glittered.

I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday Use a Stamp Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I would appreciate all the prayers and good wishes as I begin my journey to wellness.
