First Christmas Card for 2012

Hi everyone, just wanted to say thankyou so much for your concern and well wishes for my husband. I rang the hospital this morning and found out they want to keep him for a couple of days. They also wanted to do a pelvic x-ray and possibly one of his hands. They did the first one and there is no problem there and I don't think they are going to do the hand now, he seems to have full use of both hands. Still in quite a bit of pain. I took our granddaughters in to see him which cheered him up quite a bit. I had a couple of the kids over for tea tonight and they went home about 10 p.m. Our youngest son leaves for Cambodia on Saturday for 2 weeks. He is doing a charity bike trip called Ride for Cambodia, they buy motorbikes/scooters and at the end of the two weeks they give them to the charity to sell as fundraising. I'm praying that everything goes well and he keeps safe over there, especially riding the bike.
I see I have a few new followers, so welcome, Merry, Trish, Bernie, Hanneke and Scrapping girl. I may have already welcomed a couple of you, not sure, LOL, my brain is a bit stressed out at the moment.
I wanted to get a Christmas card done before the end of the month so chose to do that tonight.
I've used SU Lucky Limeade for the base, a green dotty paper from My Mind's Eye and a small strip from 2007 Allison Ellis Design made here in Oz called "Precious Purple Trees" it has strips with stars, trees and this delightful little berry and star vine. The greeting is from an SU set called "Short and Sweet" and inked with a Tombo Marker in a purple shade. I used a blue card from stash to cut a nestie and I also cut around the digi image from Meljen's Desigs printed on white card. I used Copic Markers to colour the snowman.
I am entering this card into the following:
Christmas Card Challenges - 2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #8 - Challenge is to colour.
