Time again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next makes. Christine chose the theme of A Christmas Carol.
My card is a bit of a remake. I originally made a card from an old used christmas card a few years ago, but you know when you make a card and it just doesn't gel for some unknown reason? Well that is what happened with the card I made so I undid it and put the parts into my remake stash box where they have stayed ever since. I decided to have another go with the image and make it into an easel card as I haven't done one in a while.
Our friend is still in hospital because of two things. He has an infection in his bowel which the doctors are trying to clear up and also the care package which should have been in place for him at home has not materialised. When Brian thought he was being released last week he gave the company a ring to make sure it was all in order only to be told they had pulled out as he needed more care than they were able to provide. They hadn't even bothered to inform the hospital so it is back to square one with organizing another package for him. It is his Birthday today so not exactly how he would have planned spending it.
Storm Dennis has been raging all day. We lost a tree in the front garden last weekend from Storm Ciara and now we have had a small tree in the back garden sheered off at the base leaving just a foot of trunk sticking out of the ground. I am running out of trees!! Hope you are all staying safe and not getting too much damage from the wind and rain.
Photos taken this morning of the flood pond that runs beside our house. They closed the sluice gates off last night to prevent the rest of the village from flooding.
