Get Well, Uncle Bill!

Oh my WORD! Is December REALLY half over?!! What happened? How come I don't have my Christmas cards in the mail yet?! I'm telling you, there really should be about two more weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas... don't you think?!

Although I've obviously been neglecting my blog, I promise you I have not been sitting on my rump. Somehow, homeschooling the boys, making Christmas presents, keeping up with laundry, cooking meals, getting the kids to swimming, music, juggling, and Scouts, and chasing a three-year old around seems to take up all of my time! Who'd of thought?

Okay, so I did have to put my busy life on pause the other night so I could make a card for my Uncle Bill who had open heart surgery last week. He's doing well and should be released from the hospital on Tuesday. Praise God! Here is the card I whipped up for him.

Nothing fancy... but I did wad up the stripe in back to age it a bit. I like that technique. Okay, I'd stay and chat, but there's about 3 baskets of laundry on the couch that won't fold itself, sticky dried up juice spills on the kitchen floor, a 10-year old wandering around instead of doing his schoolwork, the dog is ringing the bell to be let out, and I have about 50 people coming over this afternoon for a Birds of Prey presentation (no joke... heaven knows where they're all going to park)! :)
