Merry Monday #73 & Festive Friday #16

Two card challenges in one
Merry Monday #73 Here
Festive Friday #16 Here
 PTI's Holiday Sparkle and old stamp set but new to me in Kraft, Pure Poppy and New Leaf
Paper is from My Mind's Eye - Merry Little Christmas
So I have not been able to craft for over a week.  Had my granddaughters on Tuesday and have been working on my Sorority Scrapbook that I have had all summer to do but had only done a couple of pages.  Wednesday was our first meeting so wanted to get it done for that night, but alas that would not happen.  I got an email that one of the guys where I used to work was having a little retirement party at 11:00 that day which I had forgotten all about.  So I was planning on going to that and that would not happen either.  My brother called who lives with my dad and said he was acting strange.  He had had a seizure so I needed to go over and look after him.  My brother was leaving to go do a job and would be gone for 2-3 days.  Later that same day he had two more so I ended up having to call 911 and spent the rest of the afternoon in the ER.  My sister got there about 5:00 and I was able to go to my meeting to get away for awhile.  But then spent Thursday and Friday at the hospital.  He was pretty out of it most of the days.  My sister is just now bringing him home.  All because he is a stubborn 93 year old and didn't want to take his seizure meds.   Hopefully, he will now because he doesn't like being in the hospital.
