Happy Retirement

Yesterday, I was enjoying a wonderful day and later we were watching a movie when my 4 year old son fell asleep.  When I was taking him to his room, he woke slightly and started to try to wiggle out of my arms.  I tried to regain my balance so that I wouldn't drop him when I fell down the stairs and fractured my big toe and bruised my hip.  My son landed on me and thank heavens he didn't get hurt at all.  So, I am going to be down for a while and I hope that means that I will have opportunity to scrap and make cards......since most household chores require me to be standing and I can sit with my foot up and scrap. ;)

I created this card for the Paper Crafts Go To Sketch Challenge on Flickr a week or so ago, but I also wanted to share it with you here. 
        Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and Coredinations
        Stamp and ink: Stampin' Up!
        Die cuts: Cricut by Provocraft with Going Places,
            Mini Monograms, and Paper Doll Dress Up carts
        Other: Raffia, dimensional adhesive

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget about my giveaway HERE.
