Crisis over...for now.

I've had a stressful few days of late.
Mum had a fall on Saturday morning.
She rang me, (from the floor) telling me she'd fallen and could I come.
I'd just stepped out of the shower. Told her I would be there as soon as possible
and had she pressed her pendant to alert the Warden. ' No' she says!! Arghhhh!!
I told her to do that straight away while I was getting there.
To cut a long story short, I was there in 20mins.
The Warden was there and had rung for an ambulance.
It took the ambulance over an hour to get to her
as they were inundated with calls.
I think it was due to the thick fog and ice causing falls and RTAs.
Anyway, she was admitted to the observation ward overnight
and deemed fit to return home the following day.
Luckily, she'd just bruised herself and not broken anything.
She's made of tough stuff my mother!! She's 90 next week!!!!

I did manage to make a couple of cards when I had the odd half hour.

I'm entering this one in the High Hopes challenge. You have to use metal on your creation.
I've used a brass corner and a metal brad.
(Sentiment at the bottom of the card).

SU DP used on this one with SU's Lovely As A Tree stamped onto white card and given the 'glow' treatment with SU Rose Red. Double satin ribbon from stash and the Happy Christmas brad from Making Memories. Tree glittered with Glamour dust. (Love that stuff).

Coloured this reindeer ages ago and stuck him in a drawer.
I put Diamond Glaze on his nose to make it shiny but you can't tell on here.
The Greeting is made out of board and I think, a Papermania one.
( I took it out of the packet an threw it away).
The CS and DP is from Stampin' Up and organza ribbon from my stash.
Hope you like them ...........
