Shopping Spree

January is nearly over, time doesn't slow down for anyone! Adrian is still in the hospital and had an arm sling fitted today which he doesn't like but definitely needs, I spent a couple of hours at the hospital with him so was there when the girl come with the sling and I told him that he needs to wear it and not make a fuss. He is not a good patient!!! He was sick again while I was there too and is not eating very much. They changed the type of pain medication so it is probably the meds that he is reacting to. I got mixed up with the parking times and got back to my car about 20 mins after the ticket had expired and luckily there was no parking infringement notice on my windscreen. Laurie is now packed for Cambodia, one pair of jeans, a couple of t-shirts, socks and undies and a pair of shorts. His riding boots and riding "armour" as well. A few small bits and pieces like tyre mending kit and a couple of tools, his helmet and a camera that mounts on his helmet so he can film as he rides and some American dollars as he can use these easier than Australian.
It's another late night for me as people pop in and out either to talk about their dad or say goodbye to Laurie
I left it late to start making my card for tonight so here it is,
Basecard is SU Not Quite Navy, DP is from DCWV Linen Closet matstack The scallop diecut was made with a DP from SU and the image is from Digi Darla, printed onto white cardstock, coloured with Copic Markers and cut out with a Nestie circle die.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the DP and added 2 thin gold border stickers.
I am going to enter this into the following:
