Update on hubby:
 We went to Wythenshaw just before Christmas, hubby had another scan and the results came  back saying  the tumor hasn't grown any since October.. Told us to go away and have a lovely Christmas and they will see him again in March! When he will have another scan.
 So that's what we did, quite, but, lovely. 
Let me take this opportunity to thank you all for your lovely comments and good wishes this year.
I know I've not been leaving comments as much as I would wish, but,
it really as been a hard 6 months to come to terms with all that's happening. 
So whilst I'm publishing this card.
 I'd like to wish you all 

Keep Crafting! xx

Iv'e used a Kraftin 'Kimmie Stamp 'Dear Santa!'. Love this little guy with the puppy..Also, a digi
