Santa's On His Way - MERRY CHRISTMAS


This will probably be my last post until after Christmas so with that said I want to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! 

Things have been so wild around here lately with my health that I haven't been around to visit for a while.  Amazing how tests can really do more harm sometimes than good.....  Most of you know I haven't been well for about 9 months, no energy, not able to breath or be very active, etc., etc.  Finally, we have some info.  During the heart test I went into A-Fib which really knocked me for a loop and took 3 hours to get my heart back to normal, next step Cardiologist.  Yesterday I had the breathing tests and found out I have COPD (which I already knew) but now have Asthma too.  They gave me something in an inhaler and for the first time in months I actually felt great, could breathe, was in a wonderful mood, and had the best afternoon and evening.  Today, back to the same old stuff, so I'm calling the hospital tomorrow to find out what that good stuff was.  I WANT MORE!!!  LOL
Enough about me but wanted to let you know what's been going on..

Guess you can tell my DIL is here and designing some of her wonderful cards that I want to share with you for this challenge,  Sure wish I could get her to start blogging!!  The challenge this month at Christmas Cards All Year Round is that Santa must be the main focus of your card,  After all, Christmas is just 10 days away.  Oh yeah, I'm still not anywhere close to being ready.

Here are 2 more cards I hope will inspire you to play along with us this month.  You still have until December 30th to enter to win a wonderful prize.

My DT sisters have some really great cards to share with you so I hope you will hop on over to the CCAYR challenge blog to leave them some love and share your card with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
For the first time in several years I will have all 3 of my children together for Christmas, that in itself is a true Christmas Blessing.  May you and your family create wonderful memories this year, have lots of fun and laughter, and revel in the reason for the season.
