Christmas Card Making has been on my agenda the last few weeks when I have had a spare moment or two. They have been somewhat limited however so my desk still resembles my picture I shared on Sunday.
We've had a crazy start to this week here. The pleasant highlights of last week were that on Thursday I caught up for coffee with one of my crafting friends who I hadn't seen in a while and I spent a relaxing Saturday with the boys at the movies, doing a bit of shopping and having lunch out.
So the crazy started on Sunday when we had a hail storm that made our hot spring day look more like winter. It was welcome however as it was the first rain we have had in months and our new water tank was needing to be filled.

Monday I took my dad in for a routine day surgery procedure but that night he was in terrible pain so we drove him back to the Emergency Department (as instructed by his surgeon) and early Tuesday morning x-rays revealed he had a large amount of air trapped in his abdomen (a much better prognosis than the thought of him having a hole in his bowel as first suggested). So they had to take him back into theater to suck out all the air, he's home again now and doing much better.
Anyhow in between all the visits to the hospital, I realized that I hadn't made an anniversary card to give hubby, so with the Donna Downey Poppy Stamps which were on my desk as I had just purchased them from Unity Stamp Co, I quickly put together the card below. It was sort of fitting to as it was Remembrance Day.
Our 19th Wedding Anniversary was yesterday (Tuesday) and given that we both only had about 2 hrs sleep because of our early morning run to the emergency department with Dad and having to be up for work etc we had a very early night and our dinner plans were postponed......I did however on Saturday get to choose my present which is two prints of peacocks (one male and one female) which I will post a pic of once they are hanging on our lounge room wall.
Today I am in recovery mode so my taking it easy has allowed me the time to post here and I am looking forward to catching up with all the desks and goings on of my fellow deskers who I have missed visiting over the past few weeks. So before this turns into a long post, I will end by wishing you all a happy WOYWW and wonderful week ahead.
