Christmas card of the week - it's a sneak peek

I have to keep this REALLY short and sweet today...remember that aching back from the other day, well it ended up in a pinched nerve in my neck. We are talking OMG PAIN here! Let me just say that it ranks as #2 on the list of most painful things I have ever lived through. And natural childbirth with no drugs was NOT #1! After a VERY long weekend of pain and discomfort I saw my doctor and chiropractor today and with drugs for pain and the miracles of my chiropractor I hope to be mobile again in a couple days.

To keep things short, I can't stand or sit comfortably for more than like 60 seconds, but I can lay on the couch with my chin tucked in my neck and my knees up with the laptop on my belly so it is from this position that I write my post today.

This is a sneak peek of the release that Stamping Bella has planned for Scrapfest this weekend. It's a Mo, and if you are a fan of Mo rubber, I think you will be a happy stamper this month...don't know for sure, but just saying {wink}.

I'm not sure of the 'offical' name of this stamp because it is not online yet, but as soon as it is there I'll be linking it up. For now, let's call it rustic door with a wreath! It was stamped on Bella's BESTEST paper with memento ink and coloured with copic markers. I only used pencils for the reddish shading around the door and the rest was done with the following copic markers.

WOO, COO, E41, 41, 42, w1, 3
G40, 82, 94, 99
T0, 1, 2, 3, 5
C0, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9

That's it for now....I'm writing this post Tuesday evening and I'm now going to ditch the laptop and focus my attention back to CNN and the anticipation of rescuing the Chilean minors.

Oh wow Linda...this is gorgeous!

I don't need another Christmas stamp...I don't need another Christmas stamp...I don't need another Christmas stamp...

Ok, with that outta the way, I am so sorry you are in pain! I know how you feel-I have a herniated disc in my back and sometimes I just cry because I can't get in any position that is comfortable. Drugs are good...hope you are feeling better soon!
