Welcome stampers to the first weekly challenge of 2017! It's been a whirlwind holiday season for me. It started with my dad's surgery that did not go as planned, which caused a second emergency surgery which also proved to have some complications. That then lead Jack and I to hop on a plane 48 hours later and travel half way across the country to be with him and my family. He is recovering now at home finally and in good hands with home nurses coming 3 times a week. He is still hooked up to one portable tube, but the doctor said that will be coming out in another week. Christmas was not spent as originally planned, but it still worked out for my little one. Santa brought a few gifts to him there and left some at home too. So he got 2 Christmas mornings out of the deal!
Another event that happened over the holidays was a sweet friend of mine gave birth to a cute little baby boy, Jayce Winter Buresh. I thought this week's sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary lent itself to a great winter themed baby card. After all, that's his middle name! Part of his gift I am sending includes a little reindeer so I new the Foxy Friends set was the way to go! The reindeer and tree are from that set, and I used Pool Party snowflakes from the Snow Place set, Early Espresso ones from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set, and the words come from Places You'll Go and Weather Together sets.
I am anxious to get back into my stamping groove and look forward to sharing new projects every week with Create with Connie and Mary. Happy Stamping!
