Merry Christmas

Hope all of you enjoyed a happy Mother's day last Sunday.
DH spent the day at home with me
and I think he enjoyed it but was quite ready to go back
to the home by late afternoon.
It is good that he is settling down but now I am 
feeling guilty because I am enjoying being on my own.
You can't win can you?
Time for the mid month reminder at 
do hope that you are going to join in. 

A fairly ordinary photo I am afraid I took it during the evening and 
the lights and flash have reflexed on the background 
so the colour has disappeared.
Yes it is another Bokeh background.
I love this technique but promise this is the last I will inflict upon you.

Thanks for dropping in

Bokeh again

It is nice to have a little time in my craft room.
I needed a card for a birthday coming up this week so
as I had fun with the Bokeh last time that I did it, 
thought I would give it another try.
 House of Cards have it for their theme this month so I have entered it
in  their challenge and a few others.

Once dry I sprayed the background with Pearl glimmer mist.
It is a long time since I used it and think it is rather over done.
It is certainly glittery.

Am entering this in:

Crafty boots challenges - Things with wings

Thanks for dropping in.

Cold Outside

Oh boy this has been a busy couple of weeks since I last posted.
I have been back and forth to the aged care facility
where my husband is sometime 3 times a day
and have been so tired at night that all I want to do is chill out.
Fingers crossed he is beginning to settle, gets on well
with all the staff and talks to other residents.
So he really is getting more social contact than he was at home,
but of course it isn't home.  
I am hoping to have him home for a couple of hours this weekend
and if that goes well hope to work up to having him home for the
day on a Sunday when a lot of the other residents in the home
go out and the place is very quiet.
Then of course my computer decided to play up.
everything I wrote was disappearing, it wouldn't copy my photos
just told me there was an error and closed down.
Have no idea why but today it seems to have gotten over it's hissy fit.
Thanks goodness.
My card today is a DT one for
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge extra 2
Come and join in where anything goes as long as it is a Christmas make.

We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I have used
Sorry I took the photo before I added gloss to his nose and the pads on his feet
Have layered the Happy Christmas to add depth
and added glittering snowflakes.
The card blank is a blue grey and the darker blue card 
is not as bright as it looks in the photo.

Thanks for dropping by you are most welcome.
