Men are like fine wine...

My best friend is having a rough time with her family and her Mother who is suffering from Alzheimer's.  To make it worse is how her brothers are treating her so I thought this would be an appropriate card for her.  They are jealous that she is a nurse and has the knowledge of what is happening and they are anxious and guilty for not spending time with Mom when she was of sound mind.  Dealing with family can be so complicated.
For my card, I added Glossy Accents to the wine bottle, glass and  Stella's glasses.  I also added some pearls for her earrings.

I LOVE the sentiment on this card but suspect that if I were to give this card to the hubs, he would have an issue with it! Oh well, I can just snicker at your card. So funny!

Fabulous fun card and sentiment-sure to bring a smile to her face-I was in this situation too and my brother and sister who both had cars left it to me (who had to walk) because it upset them too much???My hubby has just been diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimers and Vascular Dementia so the wheel goes round!
