Winter Wishes

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Hubbys legs are now free of the sutures but oh my goodness, i finally got a look at his legs properly and the bruising is so bad, one leg is almost black.He can only take the stockings off for 30 mins max a day for 2 weeks so he had to have a quick bath and then i applied lots of arnica cream to hopefully ease the bruises.
I had a mojo no go last night so todays card is another from my reserves.
Hopefully today i can have a good craft in my corner.
No challenges again.

Products used are:
Cream  card
Distress tool
Docrafts papers
Stickles - stardust
Lace
Dovecraft sentiment
Hobbyhouse pre coloured topper.
a close up of the gorgeous image.
and a sideways view.
I am nearly out of my reserve cards so i better get cracking on some more.lol
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx
