Comfort & Joy

I took a little bit of time for myself this morning and whipped up this card for the Bah Humbug Challenge and I used the sketch from The Paper Players.
A quick update on my Mom--she's still in rehab and I'm going up every afternoon. She's still having trouble swallowing so they are doing a test on that today. Other than that we're in limbo, don't whether I will be able to bring her home or if she will have to go to a nursing and rehab facility. Just taking one day at a time and keeping on steppin'. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, very much appreciated.

So sorry to hear about your Mum Beverly. You must be really worried about her.
Glad to see you are getting some crafting done too - it does help to take your mind of worries sometimes.
I (Ann) am typing this on Max's computer - staying at her house (the Scottish wing of Bah! Humbug!) this week. You can imagaine what fun we're having.
Your entry is just gorgeous. Hope you'll have chance to join us again in next week's challenge.
Love from Ann and Max.
