I haven't been lost...I have been spending time with my husband since he has been in the hospital has taken quite a bit of time to care for at home.  He complains that I yell at him too much which is true, but he doesn't  eat and drink which I know he will end up back in the hospital for dehydration.  The other day we went to the mall to do some Christmas shopping for his kids which took us four hours since we had to use a wheelchair and take his oxygen and we didn't get a lot accomplished.  He managed to have half a burrito and one bottle of Vitamin water for the day.  The next day he had a piece of cinnamon toast and almost two bottles of vitamin water.  Today he has had one pot Tart and half a milkshake along with a few bites of dirt cake that I made for my Mother-in-law.  Then he wonders why I'm on his case?!?!???
Tomorrow my Mother-In-Law will be 88 years old.  We went to go visit her today along with my sister-in-law and her husband.  She is very independent for a woman her age.  The sentiment is a freebie from TLC, Create.  My second card is for my step-daughter who really has a thing for angels.  The image is from a club from TLC, Create and the sentiment is also from TLC.

Gosh, Lisa Lynn, I hope your hubby will feel better soon, and want to eat & drink! It makes it difficult for both of you right now.
You created two more wonderful cards. :^) They are both great takes on the sketches you chose. Love the die cuts & papers! :^)
