Kathie, your card is adorable. Love all your details. With you having snow, I'm sure it is easier to make Christmas cards, hehe. Just be careful so you don't slip and fall in your snow. I know that it is a process, but keep working on the walking. Hopefully they gave you support stockings or ace bandages to help with the swelling when you are up so it doesn't get worse or so you don't get a blood clot. Sorry always being a nurse, hehe.
