Sweet Sunday #248 and Verve Inspirations

Good morning crafty friends and happy Friday! I can't believe
we are only 2 week away from Christmas! Wow time really does fly!
I need to finish up my shopping asap! I usually try not to wait
so late but everyone has been so busy this year that wish lists were
a little late getting made and getting sent out. A great Christmas present
that is coming today is my FIL is getting his permanent spine simulator
put in! We are all so excited! He has had a lot of back problems
and a lot of surgeries but still in a lot of pain with meds not really helping.
Last month he had a trial simulator put in for a few days and he
said the relief was unbelievable, he felt like a normal person! So him
getting this permanent one is a real answer to all our prayers 
and really is the best gift we will get this year!

On another note, I want to share a Christmas card I made the other 
day following the current sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
I am entering it into the current Verve Inspirations Challenge 
and the current Verve Diva Dare Favorite Things challenge.
I am also entering this card into the December challenge (Celebrate the Holiday)
 at Mema's Crafts, the current challenge (So Flakey) from Little Red Wagon,
 and the current challenge (Christmas) from Crafty Card Makers.
