Karen's Triangle Christmas Card


Good Morning Ladies,

I hope thar the Winter Sun is shining on you today,  did you all have the torrential rain that we had yesterday,  it was hammering on the window so hard it woke me up,  I did laugh when Paul told me that we had an email from Thames Water saying that they had lifted the hose pipe ban 😅🤣, how many people will be watering their gardens in December?? 

Update from yesterday:  I did get a call from the Duty Doctor, he was lovely,  I said that I couldn't go on suffering this intense pain every few weeks, he said he was going to try and get to the bottom of it, he has booked me a scan in Urology dept, they think from my sample results that my bladder is never fully empty, so bacteria builds,  the scan will detect it if that's the case.  He also thinks that the UTI' s I had on 9th & 18th October was never fully eradicated and that I am so used to the symptoms combined with the fact that my bladder isnt as sensitive as it should be, I don't notice the infection at low level, only when it's advanced enough to cause severe pain.  So these new antibiotics will hopefully work, I have never heard of them before Pivmicillian, they have made me feel terrible so hopefully that means they are working!!

Karen has very thoughtfully made a card for me to share today, I love it, it's such a contemporary style,  I have tried to show the shine from the pretty gem stones and the Gold Posca Pen splats. 

Karen's Description:

Here’s a really really easy Christmas card It looked good even without the triangular trees

Gold Posca pen splattered onto a card blank and then some Creative Expressions trees (I tried to gold emboss gold stars on the top of the trees but didn’t work I hope the red gems disguise it OK)

Thank you so much Karen I really appreciate your help, your card is fantastic, I love it XXX 

I hope that you all have a good day, 

Love and hugs to all of you, 



  1. Morning everyone
    A great x-mas card Karen. Perfect for posting.
    Lilian, everything crossed that the results are good. You take care.
    Sandra, everything crossed for you too that these pills will kill off the uti-problems and that the doctor can get to the root of why this is keep happening to you. Don't worry about any card making or anything. Sure we have sent you things earlier to use if you want. Sending extra hugs to anyone 100% and wishes for a good day.
    Sun is shining and it look like a nice day after all the rain. I just spent a bit of time with the neighbours cat. Feel sorry for her to be home alone so long, if OH wasn't allergic she could have stayed with us but can not do so....
    Many hugs for you all xxx

  2. Hi everyone
    Love your card Karen 😊
    Hope you’re starting to feel better Sandra with the antibiotics xx
    Lilian, hope you’re ok too and not in too much pain xx
    Maria, I’m just watching the Christmas films on in the afternoons on Channel 5 😊 There’s nothing better on a cold afternoon than tucking up under my blanket with a cuppa and watching a good film ☺️
    I’ve given 4 weeks notice at work, my last day being Wednesday 14th December. Barney is ok too thank you 😊 xx
    Hope everyone is ok and had a good day.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hello everyone, another very wet day again, also blowing a gale.
    Poor R came back from town like a drowned rat.
    Karen great idea for a Christmas card, think I’ll take that idea and try something like that if it’s ok with you. No splatters though, I always make great a great mess when I try those. Hope that’s OK with you.

    Sandra do hope you will start to feel better, and get some sleep tonight.
    Haven’t done much today, so I’ll wish you all a goodnight. Lilian

  4. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    Sandra I hope the antibiotics are kicking in and you are starting to feel some benefit however little, any relief will certainly make a difference. xx
    Karen love today’s card, really CAS in my opinion, it definitely appeals to me. Thank you for stepping into help Sandra
    We have had a very peaceful day, did a few hours work on the computer but after that it’s just been chilling out and relaxing.
    Hope your day has been as good. Take care dear friends.
    Love Brenda xxx

  5. Hi Sandra and all looking in today.
    Karen, a lovely card. Simple but effective, definitely great for Christmas cards.
    Sandra, I hope you are starting to improve a little. And also hope you don’t have to wait too long before having the scan my lovely xx job
    Lilian, my splats usually end up going everywhere except where I want them 😁😁 I hope your results are good. How long do you have to wait? Xx
    I actually managed to get two challenge cards hon finished AND sent to you Sandra.
    It’s been wet and quite grey here today, very different to 28 years ago when it was a lovely sunny day with no need to have the heating on. I remember we were looking out of our bedroom window and enjoying the lovely blue sky about 10 minutes before Gem was born. Those years have flown by.
    Sending hugs to you all. Take care xx
