Cold & Crisp

That is the weather these days... when you just want to snuggle under the blankets with the fireplace on and read a good book... but me.. I need to get my cards done.. since the December 8 date came and went - that was my deadline date for getting them done. I didn't want to make and send one at a time - I wanted mass production... and not this head cold that has settled in for the last few days.. URGHHHH!!!! When I do get a few done, I cannot seem to say - "OK thats it! Mass produce away! " Instead I think "ok, now its time for more tea and the sofa".

I think stress is a factor for my lacking immune system. We learned about a week ago (maybe two - since my sense of time is off! ) that my Uncle has liver cancer and its actually spreading throughout the body and they haven't removed any of the tumors. He's been going to "healing services" and believes that the healing prayers will make him better. Now, I have conflicting emotions about this. One positive thing is that he's out lived the timeline he was given in April.. APRIL!! He TELLS US IN NOVEMBER AND HES KNOWN ABOUT THIS SINCE APRIL!!!!???? WHAT !!!!???? Since our family is fairly close, I was thinking.. how did we not know?... and then I recall hes been using some excuses of late.. 'Other plans, someone in the family is sick, no transportation, and last, he avoids getting back to us... so putting that all together. I GET IT NOW!.. but it all makes sense.

So I got some serious prayer requests going out for him - and the family - as we head into the holiday season.. God Bless you Uncle Steve!!!!

To honor my Uncle - I used his love of CANDY CANES for this card...

Thanks for listening to me babble on.. if you are still here.. anyone????
Make sure you hug the ones you love today!!!!

You and your family will be in the hearts and minds of many people at this time.
I think this is a very pretty card and I really like the simplicity and elegance of it. Snowflake is lovely.
