Very briefly

Today is a big day - it's the day I finally move my lovely Mum into a great care home only a few minutes away from me. She has been in hospital for nearly six months now and it has been a very trying time for her and for my sisters and me, so I'm looking forward to getting her settled in her own nice room with some of her familiar things around her and the lovely carers to look after her.

So just popping on here very briefly to share a card I made a couple of days ago, I used a Pollycraft stamp and coloured her with Promarkers. My backing papers are from PaperArtsy, the sentiment is Stampin Up and the flowers are from Petaloo.

Challenges I'm entering this for are:
Little Red Wagon - Something Old (my stamp) & something new (my papers)
Sisterhood of Crafters - Bling
Hodge Podge Shop - Distressing
ABC Challenge - F for flowers
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Winter wonderland

Best wishes for your Mom. I went through something similar with my Mom earlier this year. It is tough. Your card is beautiful. Thanks for joining us at the Hodge Podge Shop! Hope to see you again.

I like this card he is a really cute character!
I hope all goes well with your Mum's move to the care home. I know it can take them a wee while to settle in so don't be despondent if it doesn't go to plan straight away just give it a few weeks for Mum to settle in.

Stunning card Jenny. I can empathise with your Mum as we had to arrange the same for my MIL and its not easy at all for them or the family. But it will make things easier for you I am sure. Take care, Sheila:)X
