First today I would like to welcome Sid at http://harpie38.blogspot.com/ as a new follower. Sid lives in the UK and makes all kinds of mixed medium creations. I hope you have time to pop by and say "hi".

I visited the day care center Thursday that the VA reccommended. The director was a wonderful, caring man and also a lady from the VA met me there. They want hubby to come there three days a week and they will pick him up and bring him home. I think it would be wonderful for him to get to meet other veterans and a chance to talk and visit with others and keep him from in front of the TV all day long. It is just like a nursing home only you come home at night. The man from the daycare is coming to our home Monday to meet hubby.  I told hubby about it yesterday and he said he would talk to the man. I believe hubby will go once and be done. I would be thrilled for him to go three days a week to give him something to do and I would have a little break. I'm trying to be positive and hope he will go.

Today's card is another card made with my new die from Memory Box. It's very simple, just die cut and glued on. I added a simple hello and popped it up. All done. Be kind to one another.

  5. Another pretty CAS. I think the pretty white die against that vivid red made an outstanding card. You're turning out some great cards. Good news to hear about the VA possibilities. I hope once he goes, he will feel like it's a place he'd like to go again, and give you a bit of break. If you felt comfortable with the folks you talked to, that's a good sign. So glad you are pursuing this. Praying it will work out for you. Hugs & TFS

  9. It might be a simple card Brenda, but it sure is a beautiful one! I love that you left it simple because that die should be the star all on it's own. Oh I so hope that DH goes three days a week, I too think it would be good for him and it would definitely give you a break which you so need to have. I will pray that DH likes it!! I think this is wonderful that they will pick him up and bring him back as well. Hugs, Brenda
