I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children. My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)

Catching up...

and a quick card to share.

Yes, I have been gone for a little over two weeks.  I just needed some time to regroup and heal.

First a little update... I have started the physical therapy for my ankles, and while not "hard", it is challenging at times.  I know I have to do it, so I do, but....there are times.  My desire to regain my independence is too strong though to let me not do what I need to do.  I am still using crutches with no weight allowed on the left ankle, but I go back to surgeon in a week and am certain I will be allowed to start walking on it.  Then I will be able to start driving again.  While a little nervous about driving, I am anxious to move on.

Now a quick card...

I made this card for the Birthday Swap I am in on Paper Crafting Divas.  I created this soon after my accident and my crafting mojo was almost non existent, but I do like the way it came out.

Here's the details:
Papers:  scrap basket, embossed the white with the paisley Cuttlebug fodler.  The base is a pre-made green glitter card.
Embellishments:  the flower and leaves are from a K& Company flower punch out stack (that I have had FOREVER!).  I punched and layered three different sized flowers with foam adhesive squares to give dimension.  I then added a small, clear rhinestone swirl and green iridescent rhinestones.

Simple, but pretty :)
