Friday Sketchers~For You

Ok, well I had really good intentions...(feel free to skip to the card below if you would rather not read the chit chat)...I had planned to clean my pantry out, but instead Lance got our cold that the kids and I had this past week and wasn't feeling well, so he just hung out with the kids and I on Friday! He went roping this morning and then moved cattle, it is supposed to rain tomorrow, so he thought it would go much better if he did it today when the weather was decent. Tomorrow he is roping again but should be home late afternoon sometime! He decided to stay overnight close to where his next roping is instead of driving all over!

My Mom called this morning to let me know that my Grandma fell last night and broke her hip and is in hospital awaiting surgery, maybe a partial replacement or maybe it will just need to be pinned. She is almost 80 and so active, walks everywhere, so while this will definitely be a setback for sure, I am hoping because of her otherwise good health that she'll be able to recover well. I am hoping to leave the kiddos with Lance on Monday and I'll go into Calgary to see her. I have already sent flowers, so at least she knows we are thinking of her!!

Onto my card for today! I used sketch #17 by Claudia for this weeks Friday Sketchers (oh and it is her birthday tomorrow/today depending when you are reading this, so please pop on over and give her your wishes:-) I used another SU set that hadn't seen ink yet!! I really do love this one too and the Berry Bliss paper, too bad it's retired (but I do have another package in hiding;-)

I added lots of little tiny pearls to the flowers so I thought I would take a picture of the details was so time consuming getting those tiny things on there!! They come on a strip, so I cut off each one, but they are pretty teeny tiny for my chubby fingers...

Happy Birthday Claudia, I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day full of laughter and cheer!!

I hope all is well with each of you this wonderful long weekend! Thank you for taking the time to visit me on my blog and check out what's happening in my world!
