Woodware stamp and sentiment set

And also 3 images of winners choice from Ruth Hamilton Design

Ruth Hamilton Design: I have enjoyed crafting all my life and have been involved in the craft industry for several years. I started drawing images to use on cards for my own use and then went on to design some stamps for a well known craft company.I am an avid lover of nature so most of my drawings are of flowers, birds and animals. Even when I can’t travel I love spending time in the garden, growing plants and looking after them. I hope you enjoy colouring my digi images, I have several YouTube vidoes here.

For my DT card I have used one of my old stamps from Bildmalarna called Tossa-Sledge
I have coloured him with a mix of markers, I have used some of my new square stitched dies, the papers are from Paper Boutique so is the sentiment, I have also punched out some snowflakes.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Many thanks for your previous comments on my posts, I have tried to catch up after a rather traumatic week.
On Wednesday my mum would not respond to the carer or myself when we tried to wake her up, the carers thought that she might have a water infection, my brother and I thought we had lost her.
I called the doctors which, in my state of mind, was probably the wrong thing to do, I am still struggling with their response which was we cannot help as we are 'overwhelmed' I asked if they could supply me with a test bottle that I could collect and they could test her water, their reply was 'no we cannot as we are overwhelmed'
I know for a fact that they are NOT overwhelmed with seeing patients at the surgery as I had to make a visit there last week and it was empty.
I am assuming that they are 'overwhelmed' with the amount of E Consult forms that people are filling out on line, I received a text message over a week ago to say that the E Consult programme had been shut down for at least a week due to the 'overwhelming' response from patients.
The receptionist told me to contact 111 which I did, after some questions they told me they were sending an ambulance and it would arrive within 18 mins, 2 hours later they arrived, I must admit they were very good.
My brother and I were both in a state as you can imagine, the Paramedics then advised us that they had rang the doctors and would get a call back within 20 mins.  
After pussy footing about the doctor said they were going to prescribe some antibiotics, they were delivered the next day, the Paramedics also told us we needed a form signed by the doctor verifying that we did not want mum resuscitated, the doctor arrived that evening did not even look at mum just handed the form over to my brother.
Mum is a lot better thank goodness, but my battle with the service that we are being provided by the goes on.
My mum and brother are both housebound, I have been ringing the surgery for the last 4 weeks to arrange for them to have both their flu and booster Covid jabs, I was told at the onset that they would be put on a list for home visits, each week I rang and I had nothing, then last week I rang they said that home visits were 'under discussion' and I was to ring back on Friday (yesterday) to get an update.
I rang back and was informed that they were NOT on the list but would be added immediately.
I am afraid I am far from happy in fact I am so mad I really feel like I am losing it.
It is my mum's 102 birthday on 16th of this month I want to be able to celebrate that milestone with her and the family, can anybody tell me WHY there is such a lack of caring from the people that we are to supposed to receive caring from?
I cannot sit back and let this happen not just to my mum but to others that are having to suffer.
If anyone can advise me of what track I can follow to get things sorted then please let me know.
Hugs to you all

Now onto the best pumpkin in the patch and that is my baby 
Grandson Reuben, who I call Binky although his brother called him Binky before he was born he now corrects me every time and tells me no Nanny Cake it is Reuben, lol.

Oh gosh I just love him to bits.
I was at my mums yesterday, as I normally am, I have been worried about her and my brother for some time which is why I have reduced a couple of my DT roles. 
I will be visiting shortly but I have to go and do my brothers shopping before I can buckle down and do what I need to.
