I’M HERE!  It feels good to be able to sit at my computer again with my feet on the ground.  A couple of weeks ago I had surgery on both of my feet and I’ve had to keep them elevated.  It made crafting pretty much impossible for awhile. smileycrutchesani-2.gif

But I have been able to play for the last few days.  One of the things I made was this wedding card.  Part of the invitation was used to make it.  I love doing this!  It’s like getting free designer paper!


And a confession…   There was a mischievous smudge lurking on my craft table, and it found it’s way onto the rose cutout.  Ugh.  So a pearl came to the rescue.  hehe


The funny thing is is that I would have never put a pearl there.  It’s so random, but I love it!

My son, Jeff, currently active duty with the Army National Guard Medical Team.
