Isabella's Challenge #10


Happy Sunday evening! Hopefully everyone is doing well and has had a great week-end.
I have missed everyone. We are doing well and Rick is recuperating well from his shoulder surgery. It will just be slow getting back to normal as anyone who has had this or knows someone who has, already knows. Not to just brag on him, but he has always been a big help around the house and with his Mom and now that I am doing almost everything, I realize how much of a team we really are. I am even mowing, which I have never done. You wouldn't have wanted to see my first attempt. I was nervous on the John Deere, but was having a ball by the time I was done. Rick came to the door and asked me why I was grinning!!
Sorry to ramble... This is my card for the black and white with a twist challenge at Isabella's Sketchbook . I used her image which is a requirement, but there is a freebie if you do not already own one. I layered with SU black and white cardstock and dp from Making Memories. One layer I embossed with the script embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The button is by Gina K designs and I colored parts of the image with markers by SU.
It felt good to create something today...I also posted a couple of cards for challenges at StampTV if you have time to look. Hopefully one of these days I can get back to visiting everyone regularly again...I appreciate all of you that have checked in with us.
Talk to you soon!

Well, girl...I wondered how DH was getting along with his shoulder! It's so hard. Tell him that no matter what - he MUST keep up with the PT. That's the key! Love your card, Patti! It's beautiful!

Patti,
I'm sooo glad you had time to play. I can completly relate to having to do it all. Up until a few months ago about six to be exact. My husband was home every day and we also worked as a team to get things done, and now he drives a truck over the road and is rarely home leaving me to yes learn to do the John Deer too! Now I can run that thing faster and more effective than him. LOL be very careful though not to do it too well, If you know what I mean.

Patti, this is wonderful. One of my favourite images and so beautifully coloured. The embossed script is a gorgeous touch - and the final result is really elegant. Thanks for playing along at Isabella's this week - I look forward to seeing your next creation.
Hugs
