9 days ago I tried to walk on air! I was just doing an ordinary chore, wiping off the top of the fridge, standing on a small step ladder, stepping back to step down to the bottom step and there I went! Landing on our tile floor on my bum, sliding into the dishwasher, denting the poor dishwasher door and setting off my Apple Watch ” we detect a hard fall…” Not my finest hour. I have a compound fracture at T11 on my spine and have badly bruised my back. This is preventing me from doing much of anything, I can’t stand or sit for very long, so I’m unable to be very creative and I’m so sad 😞.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and usually I have cards for my Grandkids completed and mailed, its not happening this year and it makes me sad😞 really 😢! So, for the next little future, I will be just dropping my thoughts.

I must say a big Thank You to my husband. He gets a lot of “atta boys” for taking such good care of me, doing stuff that really isn’t on his list but keeps all of our ducks in a row!
Enjoy your week this week and I’ll be back to chat soon.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Todays creation is a difficult card to make.

The paper and stamps were included in a kit from Annie’s. It’s not my usual purchase but the paper was intriguing. Ink is by Nuvo and the die cuts are from my stash. Pearl accents are by Picket Fences.

I hope the recipient is comforted by the thoughts that are in this card.

Thanks for visiting today.

Tabby Cat is sorry…

Designing this A2 card with 80 lb paper, Orange and grey from my collection. I stamped Cat on another designer type paper, also from my collection,using Momento’s Ink- Tuxedo Black. My inspiration was an Orange Tabby Cat a friend had posted on Facebook. Iused Neenah white for the sentiment and grey cardstock, also from my collection for the stamped background and the fish on the grey. I stamped the fish with clear embossing ink and used white embossing powder. I distressed the whole card with Momento’s Tuxedo Black Ink and completed the card with Black Twine, Copic marker for the Cat’s collar and finished with a heart ♥️ gem from Nuvo’s Cherry Heart gems and Nuvo’s Crystal Glaze.
