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.
