Doodle Pantry Sponsorship

When I logged on this morning I couldn't believe how long it's been since I posted. My apologies. Life has been happening around here. My husband had another kidney stone attack and they've scheduled surgery but not until next Friday. In the meantime he is in a lot of pain and definitely not himself. So we are dealing with this as best we can. Friday can not come soon enough for him. My kids are all home for the holidays which is great but it does mean I have to cook. Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful to have them all around the table and we've gotten to spend some fun time together. Dan won't be returning to Boston until Wednesday so I took Monday and Tuesday off of work this week to spend some extra time with him. Steve will have to go back to work on Monday. Tricia will be around.

I promise I haven't been craft-less for the last two weeks. I've been working on some bigger projects that I will be sharing with you soon. Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the very last Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge. They will be closing the site at least for a time. So I hope you will pop over and join in the challenge. It's a Christmas challenge.

For my card I used Doodle Pantry's Mini Bethlehem stamp set as my focal point. I added one of the sentiments from the set under the image but it's very small. It says "Silent night, Holy night." The paper immediately behind the image is recycled wall paper and then designer paper behind that (I don't know the manufacturer; it was a scrap.) I added a ribbon and some green Stickles. I used Spellbinders Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle dies.
Challenges I am entering:
Thanks for stopping by today and not giving up on me. Tis the busy season of the year with lots to do. I hope you are getting lots done. If you have a prayer list, I'd appreciate a few prayers for my husband. Have a wonderful week!

A lovely lovely card from Doodle Pantry. So sorry about hubby. Kids home from college here and all of us were sick over the holiday. The good news is that we were all sick together under one roof. Son left to go back to college yesterday coughing and sneezing but feeling a tad better and hopefully well enough to attend classes. I hope everyone is back on track at your house. I've been neglecting my blog as well and not posted anything in over a week.

This card is awesome Donna. Sorry to hear your husband is suffering again. Saying a prayer that the surgery will end his problems.
