Playing with my new dies

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
Great news about Stephen. Yesterday afternoon, he went out for a little walk by himself. He has previously only been out with supervision (physiotherapist). He was only out for nearly 15 minutes but that must have boosted his confidence tremendously :o) It is still very painful for him to walk and he still gets a bit breathless, but things are looking up for him.
Must say that I was on edge until he got back safely!

And now,  my card for today!

PMS white hammered card folded and cut to 6x6.
Paper is from J&P Pictures.
Glittercard from The Range, cut with Memory Box dies. 
Sentiment is from ancient Woodware word set.
That's all there is to it :o)
Jackie xx

Oh wow hun, no wonder you were on edge! Well done Stephen, that is one heck of an achievement! Gorgeous card sweetie. Hugs xx

Ooo, this is beautiful Jackie. Love how you used the dies.

Fantastic about Stephen walking by himself - that's awesome - but I can totally relate to being on the edge of your seat until he returned! Being a Carer myself, I find it more stressful when my loved one isn't with me, although that side of things has improved a little now and I feel a bit more relaxed about when they aren't with me.

Merry Christmas Jackie to you and your family. Thank you for your amazing support and encouragement of my card making - I really appreciate it :-)
