August Rudolph Days Challenge.

Once again, it is time for the Rudolph Days Challenge. You can submit your newly created Christmas card or any Christmas themed project to our challenge. The challenge runs till midnight on the last day of the month. Don't forget to leave a comment on this post!

Sam at Whispers Cards has created these beautiful snowflake cards for our inspiration. Her first card is this lovely gold snowflake card. The gold metallic snowflake takes pride of place, and the pretty background paper looks so good here. This card looks so festive! I like the tied twine holding the sweet looks great here.

Sam's second card is a silvery delight. This time, Sam has used silver metallic to make that snowflake pop. I must say the addition of that fabulous sentiment makes this card stunning! I think this one is my fave but as they both are beautiful, it was a hard decision. I hope you will follow the hyperlink by clicking on Sam's name and leave her some lovely comments on these stunning card.
I have still been busy with Al. He is still having difficulties bouncing back and the specialist advises that he may never regain the level of stamina he had before the heart attack. They have played around with his medications and that has solved some issues, but they feel his remaining health issues are simply due to the reduced capacity of his heart. He also experiences extreme heat intollerance now, and that is taking a toll on his golf outings. On hot days like we have been having this summer, he has learned to come home early and not worry about finishing 18 holes! The doctor advises that his heart can not pump enough oxygen that it needs to cool his body. He may just have to switch up to spring and fall golfing! As soon as he is strong enough, they will do the heart valve replacement and that should solve some remaining health issues as well.

I tend to stay on the same floor as him now, as if I had not been there, we would not have been able to save him. He was sitting down and could not get enough breath to call out for help. He just slumped forward a bit in the recliner. It sure has made me reluctant to go downstairs to my craft room. I am in the midst of creating card kits and scrapbook page kits so I can carry them up and work on them at the dining room table. Hopefully soon, I will be making cards again.

Our prize this month is this Find It media Christmas Bauble die.
