Back to own photographs for a little while

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or on way to it...hugs

I have had lots of enquiries about son Stephen from you so here is a brief report :o)
He continues to do well with his walking and goes out everyday for little walks an his own. He started of doing little 15 minute walks and has now progressed to half hour at a time, sometimes twice a day :o)
Sadly his speech is still not good, and his arm is still paralysed, but it is only 4 1/2 months so there's time yet. There was never going to be a quick fix!

As for my shoulders, well they're not going to change until the Spring so it's a case of put up and shut up!

And now on to my card for the day. I couldn't leave my photographs out in the cold for very long and here is the first one. This is one of my favourite snowdrop pics.


I folded and cut PMS hammered white card to 7x5.
Green pearlised card was bought from Payperbox nearly 5 years ago and forms the layer behind the white pearlised embossed panel and the  the diecuts.
Dies used are Nesties and Memory Box.
A4 embossing folder from Embossalicious.
Photograph is printed onto my favourite Papermania textured card. Basically it's a very simple card :o)

Glad he's continuing to improve Jackie. Little steps eh. I'm really taken with this pretty card love. The green looks grey on my monitor, which in no way detracts from how pretty it is. (Must get me monitor adjusted)! LOL xxx

Another gorgeous card and this one having your snowdrops...and another awesome embossing folder. I'm not familiar with that company and must check it out. Wow! Thanks for the update on Stephen...small steps lead to larger steps and he's come a long way from these past months...

Hi Jackie, LOVE your snowdrop card - your photograph is gorgeous and love the diecut foliage which complements the photograph so beautifully.

Great to hear about Stephen's progress - he has come so far in those 4-1/2 months. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be with his speech but my Mum's Speech Aphraxia from her stroke has definitely become better over time. I do hope his arm improves. It is just baby steps - slow and steady.
