Challenge #21 at the JCBC

Goodmorning everyone,
I hope you all had a very nice weekend. Mine has been chaotic and very busy.
Late Thursday night my dad called to tell my that my mum was admitted into the hospital (again!!). That afternoon she went outside to get some groceries (the first time she got outside in over a week) and a few hours later she couldn't breath and had a real high temperature. At the hospital they did all kind of check-ups and they've diagnosed her with an amonia.
For all of you who don't read my blog regularly, my mum has been in and out of the hospital for about 10 times in the last 1 1/2 year. She's hasn't been feeling 100% one single day during that time. And the last 6 months she is not going outside very much, she's to afraid to catch something.
Everything is comming down to my dad right now. He's doing pretty much everything, simply because my mum isn't up for it. I'm so very proud of them. They are both stuggling with their health but they hang in there.
The only thing we can do for them, is beeing there in times when they need us.
With everything is happening to them lately I have a small favour to ask. In order to cheer them up a bit I want to ask you to send them a cheer-up card. I know for sure they would love to receive some wonderfull cards (and it would make me very happy to see happy smiles on their surprised faces). They would really brighten their day.
Please send me a email if you want to send them a card so I can give you the address.
And now on to the new challenge over at the JCBC -Blog. This week we have a great sketch for you to follow created by Rheannon. For my card I used papers from the Cloud 9 -Valentines range -. The image used is a download from a webshop called SQUIGGLEFLY. The 2 daughters of my friend Holly started this downloadshop, and I think they sell beautifull images. So make sure you pay this little shop a visit and check out the great downloads they have.

Thanks for stopping by today.

xoxo Karin
