Time Flies!

Wow. Where have the last five days gone? It seemed I'd just posted yesterday. When I looked at my last post, it was from Thursday! Time flies when you're having fun!


We gained a bit more headway in the kitchen this weekend, but only we can see it. Someone walking in off the street would shudder, turn around, and leave. However! We did get the stove and refrigerator out of the dining room - success!!!


DD had a bit of a scare on the 4th. She'd come here to visit, and was driving home. Suddenly, her car was hit by someones fireworks! She couldn't find any damage to the car, but it sure startled her! This picture was taken on the 3rd, when she went berry picking. Check out her blog for more berry picking pictures!

Today's card features the sketch this week at Mojo Monday, and uses a darling Elizabeth Bell image, and TAC sentiment. I was in need of a get well card for a friend who had a hip replacement, and I thought she'd bring a smile! Coloring is with colored pencils and loms.

So glad that you stopped by today. I hope that if my card didn't make you smile, that DD did! Have a great week! I should be back tomorrow with some more finished projects!
Hugs,
Patti J.

Lovely card and great color choices.
Oh my your DD Melissa had to been scared at a firework landing on her car. One thing I hate about the holiday is the amateurs throwing stuff around, we had a school catch on fire in our city this year...sad!

Lovely, lovely card! That should do the trick and get your friend feeling better ASAP! DD is very lucky that she's ok and so is her car. That would be extremely scary! It's a wonder she didn't drive right off the road. I wish that people would be more careful!
Congrats on the kitchen progress. Just keep reminding yourself have really gorgeous it's going to be when you get it done!

What a sweet image and I love what you did with the layout. So glad DD is ok. I gotta tell you, I probably would have peed on myself. What are the odds.

Such a pretty card! I love the image and the papers you used. Glad your making progress on your kitchen. I'm anxious to see the completed pics. Glad your daughter is o.k. too. I hate fireworks. They always make me nervous.
