Last Christmas cards for 2013.....

I have already made my first Christmas card for 2014 and have half a dozen left from this year :o)

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.

Stephen's hospital appointment went very well. They were very impressed with his progress. He wouldn't get into a wheelchair, he walked to the department which was a good 300 yards! Methinks we won't be asking for transport again though. Waiting for the ambulance to bring us home was interminable, so I will take him myself next time!

Anyhow, on to my cards for today.

All dies used are Memory Box. 
Paper used on first card is MME, and on the others it's from J&P Pictures.
Heat embossed banner/sentiment on first card is from a Papermania stamp set. Sentiments on the other two are computer generated.

As I am now approaching 73 I had to apply to renew my driving licence so I went on line Monday of last week and the licence arrive on the Friday, how's that for a quick turnaround?

All beautiful cards Jackie - I love them very much. That leaping reindeer is on my Wish List!

GREAT news about Stephen and how amazing that he walked so far. Waiting for ambulance transport is a a pain as there are never enough of them to go around. He must feel very encouraged to have come along so far since his stroke.

After my Mum's stroke, her speech was the one thing that took the longest time to improve - but it did improve HEAPS and now, apart from the occasional difficulty in finding the right word, she speaks really well.
