Yesterday was crazy in this house. To make a long story short, my 9 yr old daughter is now hobbling around on crutches. Her brothers of course think the crutches are cool, and it's been fun being mom to all of them!

So given the excitement around the house, this card took a bit longer to finish than normal. It's for one of my mother in-laws birthday that's coming up. (Before any one asks, I only have ONE husband, he just has two moms. Gotta love the family combinations now a days!) This time is a busy time of year as far as family birthdays are concerned. I have much to keep me busy. :)

I used the fabulous sketch over at Get Sketchy this week. (I'm still honored to have made top five last week!) I had to really ponder this sketch, it didn't come naturally to me. But it's always great to grow in your creativity and push through those limits!

The stamp is from High Hopes, papers from sei. The construction of the card doesn't need explanation. I couldn't have done the side fold without my Scor-pal! (Okay, so maybe I could, but it would have taken me even longer then!) The card is quite simple, but with the busy patterned paper if I added many more embellishments it would be over kill.

So there it is. :)
