Christmas Birthday

Greeting for Monday! Hope your weekend was great! I wasn't happy with my weekend, but we were where we needed to be. No crafting and sitting in a hospital is rather stressful. My MIL is still hospitalized and her surgery is still scheduled for December 22nd. Please say a prayer for her. She isn't a very good patient and it's sometimes very frustrating for everyone. Thanks! Friday I found out I had an infection so I am now on antibiotics. They are working and I am feeling better. Got home Sunday night to get ready to return to work, opened my laptop and my screen cracked down the middle. When it rains it pours. But I have to say I am so blessed! I really shouldn't be complaining. So if you see tons of spelling errors in this post, I am trying to work around a cracked screen. LOL!

I have a dear friend whose birthday is right before Christmas so I made her a Christmas-y birthday card this year.

The jar image is from Imagine That! It's the pre-colored image since my time to so short right now. I embossed the sentiment from Gina K is heat embossed with a powder called Winter Wonderland. It has some awesome sparkles in it and looks really nice IRL. The background is all scraps from my scrap box.  Easy peasy is about all I can manage right now.
I am entering these challenges:
Hope your week is off to a roaring start. I have tons to do this week before we head back home to the hospital for our turn to stay with Mom. I have nothing yet for Christmas. I took my Christmas cards to Boston and then to the hospital last weekend and I still don't have them out.  It's going to be a very different Christmas this year.
Oh, by the way. I have my verification turned off for comments but for some reason it is coming up. But I did find out that it will leave the comment without the verification so just skip it. I do so love to hear what you think. Thanks so much!
