Hey There

Hey there! I started my weekend a bit early today, as I spent the morning in the emergency room with what the doctor has diagnosed as kidney stones. Wow - not fun! Not sure if I'm in the clear yet, but I sure hope so.

I put this card together for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

I love the stitched ruffle-y ribbon. I use a paper piercer to fold it under while stitching.. works great!

The rest of the details are below.. not too much to say about this one!

I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Oh man. I had one almost 2 years ago and thought my appendix was blowing. Had to call 911, etc. Passed it while in the ED and the pain was worse than labor! Hope yours gets resolved Anya.
