Get Well Soon...

Hi there!

Can you BELIEVE it's Christmas Eve EVE????   I cannot!   Today also happens to be the 5th day of The Greeting Farm's 12 Days of Sketches contest!  Hooray!  Here is today's sketch:

My father in law was supposed to be going into surgery today so I made this card for him using one of the very first Anya's created, Nurse Anya.   Turns out that because of some complications he won't be going in today, which I guess is a blessing and a curse because it won't put him coming home on Christmas Day and miserable, you know?  Bad thing is he needs the surgery, though...Coincidentally my cousin is also have surgery today so I'd appreciate you keeping a few members of the family in your prayers!

Today we are going to the Gaylord Opryland Resort to see the Peanuts Ice Sculptures.   I'm SO excited.  This hotel seriously goes ALL OUT with their Christmas decorations so it'll be fun to see!  It's SO beautiful there!

My brother, aunt (whos' also my Godmother!) and uncle are in town from CA and FL too so I'm really excited to be hanging out with them today as well!   Oh, and one last request, if you would...please also keep DH's travel plans in your prayers.  He works in Chicago tomorrow and Friday a/m (unfortunately airline peeps have to work holidays, but hey, he has a job, right?!) and there is supposed to be TERRIBLE weather so I'm a little afraid he won't be able to get home in time for Christmas dinner...but we will stay positive and hope for the best!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with a special Christmas Eve post :)

Wish your father in law a very succesful surgery. Have fun at Resort, sound like a good plan! Hope nothing will happened to the airlines, and your DH will spend holiday with you and family!
Merry Christmas to you, Jesscica!

Gorgeous card Jessica, keeping your DH travels in my prayers.

I am loving these sketches...I have completed all four so far, but will get behind for a few days as we are away...might just have to colour a few images over the next few days to get ready.

What an adorable card!! I used to be a nurse in a previous lifetime....
I am sending many prayers and hugs for you and your family. I have a brother in the hospital and he will not be home for Christmas either. It has been very hard on him.
Have fun at the Ice Show. It is beautiful!
