Snowman Love

First of all I'll like to thank everyone for all the well wishes, thoughts, and prayers for my husband.  The surgery went well on Friday and we were finally able to come home yesterday (Sunday) evening.  Now the fun begins I'm afraid - taking care of the incision that runs from his groin all the way past his knee and trying to keep him from doing too much!  Of course, right now he can't do much of anything except get from the kitchen area to the bedroom.  But, all is well, and we're good to go (as long as my patience holds up! LOL).
Thank you, again.

It's time for the Stamps R Us Challenge - themed Nature's Gift.  Come on over and play along for this challenge.  You have two weeks to enter and our sponsor for a fabulous prize is Heart Song Designs - who also provided us with all the cute images you'll see from the DT at Stamps R Us Challenges.

 
The image I used is called Snowmen Love.  I colored (shaded) it with some Prisma pencils and Copics and framed it with a nestie.  The blue background was done with the Snowflake embossing folder and in the center of the bow I used a snowflake rhinestone sticker.

Thanks for stopping by............I'll be getting by everyone's blog in the next day or two so bear with me on this.  Just very tired right now.  It's been a very LONG three days!

Of course I read this after my email :) Glad hubby is home and doing fairly well, under the circumstances. Remember to get as much rest as you can and don't worry about blogging, I am sure all your friends understand. Continued prayers for a speedy recovery. Your card is adorable, what a sweet little snowman and love the colors and the little embellie on the ribbon.
