There's more...

Hello and Happy December to you all!
 
It's been very cold here lately with lots of hailstones but no snow as yet... I'm starting to panic a little as Christmas is just around the corner and the only thing I have done here is make a few cards. With sorting out affairs for my late Aunt, Hubby's hospital appointments as well as mine I can't say we've been idle... It's just the way it goes
 
Here's a couple more cards that I did with blended backgrounds...
 


... Using Distress Oxides and both clear and silver embossing powders





 Hubby is still awaiting a date for his hernia operation and since I last posted I've been for more X-Rays and another MRI, plus a nurse appointment and one with a consultant. Seems arthritis is the cause of the discs being pushed out and they are right in the lumbar region so the consultant wants me to undergo spine surgery and have rods and screws inserted. I'll have to wear a brace for a few months too... Going through airport security will never be the same Lol!
 It all seems quite daunting at the moment but hubby and I are looking forward to brighter days.

Thanks so much to all of you who sent messages and offered up prayers, and for all the wonderful cards I've received over the past few weeks following the passing of my aunt... You lovely people are the best!

Have a beautiful weekend

Oh, Ros! I'm not making progress on anything but the cards and I don't even have a good reason for it. You've definitely got your hands full and a lot on your mind, yet you've still produced some beautiful cards. Chilly and wintry and, oh, so lovely!

Gorgeous blended background, Ros! Very pretty with the silver embossing, too! I hope things slow down a bit for you soon! Take care and Happy Holidays!

What a fancy set! Especially the transparent embossing adds interest to them. You do have a lot on your plate, though - my goodness. That operation and all that comes with it does indeed sound daunting but then you have been in pain for so long... Whatever will be decided, I keep my fingers crossed for the best possbile outome!

Please keep us up to date with your progress and DH's. Surgery is never fun to look forward to, but if it relieves your pain, Ros and gives you back your quality life that would be great.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers my friend.

Your 4 Christmas cards are so beautiful and your CAS designs exquisite. TFS and wishing the best Holiday season possible. With Love, Nancy
