I have kept it fairly simple. The background paper is from a 6x6 paper pad I purchased in England last August. The Celebrate sentiment is a found treasure from a recent clean up in my craft room. All the other card elements were chosen from my snippets drawer because they either went with this DP or this sentiment box colour. A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do, to narrow down choices and get on to finishing up a card faster!
I am happy to say that my hip and back are feeling better...all that alternating of ice and heat really took the edge off and I feel on the road to recovery. I will be leaving DH to do any raking, lifting etc. in the gardens, and have been ordered to only do tasks in the garden that require sitting. DH is preparing a list for me! lol
It has been lovely here for the past couple of days and DH has been washing down the siding of the house and the garden shed. He is about 2/3 finished, and is already planning on washing the outside windows next. Then we will be well ready to enjoy spring and summer. We even put out some of the patio chairs and cushions...can't wait to have lunch out there.
