I haven't entered a challenge lately at the Penny Black blog, so this week I set aside time to make a card using red, gold and cream.
I used the Christmas Mimi set for the angel and the background is called Delicate Pattern. The card is a 4.5 inch square, thanks to the influence of that amazing artist Donna MiKasa!
I haven't been in the mood to make Christmas cards this month, but the color challenge at the Penny Black blog triggered a Christmas card idea.
In June I shared with you the story of my great-nephew's injuries suffered in Afghanistan. He lost both legs as the result of an IED explosion. I am pleased to report that Michael has been discharged from the Bethesda Naval Hospital this week and will continue with outpatient therapy. He has been practicing with prosthetic legs for almost two weeks and is making progress. Because his amputations are above the knee, walking with prosthetics demands increased energy use and a whole new set of skills!
Michael is now settled into a small apartment on the grounds of the Hospital. His parents have returned to their jobs and life in Georgia. His sister, Britany, is now sharing the apartment with Michael and will assist him as needed during this year of rehabilitation. They are an amazing family! Their positive outlook and deep-seated faith have inspired all who came in contact with them.
I have had a relaxing Sunday and hope you have had time to do things you enjoy today. Thanks for stopping by!!
