Hark The Christmas Rose

 Morning and I have a Christmas card to share-I stamped Hark the Christmas Rose from Chocolate Baroque onto a distress ink smooshed background,then stamped onto white card and fussy cut the flowers coloured with promarkers,the script borders was also a Chocolate Baroque stamp-distressed and inked all edges


Daughter Helen went to a neighbours family firework display on Saturday night and when they were clearing up she slipped on the wet grass and  and fell face down into a fire pit,1st degree burns to her face and nose,2nd degree burns to lips and mouth,but it could have been a lot worse.She has been in a lot of pain today and not feeling well now the shock has worn off.
