I used misc. papers and an image (SU) that were gifted to me. The flowers are frpm Petaloo, and the crystals from JoAnn's, I added a bit of silvery ribbon and a computer generated sentiment.

This is for a friend with many health problems. The latest issue for her was back surgery - so she spent Christmas in a rehab facility. It is a very pleasant place, but still lonely. We had a chance to visit briefly a few days ago, and now I want to continue to do what I can to cheer her.
I used some Spellbinder dies I have had for a long time. The blue and paisley as well as the ribbon are also from my stash. I added the gold strips to cover an error in cutting - I suspect a few of you can relate! The sentiment is Our Daily Bread (Faith).

But the favorite I wish to highlight is the celebration of Christmas, and the message on this card. This year we are looking forward to celebrating the birth of the Savior, but with heavy hearts, as we try to understand the tragedy in Connecticut. We keep all those families in our prayers.
For this ODB challenge: N= New punch, Nativity; O= old lace (that was a hard one); E= embossing; L= lace, layers.

Directions: I cut the cs 12x5.5. I folded it across, leaving the top layer about 6 inches. That way, the back is a little shorter than the front. I made a fold of about 1/3 inch along the entire side. I trimmed that portion off the back, and adhered this strip along the back. Easy peasy!

The red is embossed with my brand new QuicKutz Woven folder, and I used one of Spellbinder's Doodles around the window. The gold is a piece of a roll of gold mesh, with a gold ribbon added down the center.

CAS - the image is stamped on cs cut slightly smaller than the base. The sentiment is from an older SU angel set. I wove narrow ribbon through the Martha Stewart trellis punched piece.
