Coming Back to Life...

So I'm finally feeling better after the pulled muscle incident of last week. Today is really the first day that I have no tinge of pain anymore when I look to the left. It was better (so that I was able to function without pain) by Monday, but there were still tinges of pain if I bent down, turned too far to the left, etc. Even yesterday if I looked all the way to the left, I would have a small nudge of pain, but this morning... A O.K.

So I'd love to go to the gym today and get back on track (I had joined Curves and done my first workout the day before the pulled muscle), but I have to admit I'm afraid of a relapse... especially considering I have tomorrow off again because I will have 40 hours in by the end of today. Last week I was so bummed on Friday when I couldn't do anything on my day off... I had so much planned! Isn't that always the way?

Anyway, I may wait until tomorrow afternoon to go so at least I'll be able to get one productive day out of the weekend. I'm sure it will be fine, though.

So last Friday when I was already bummed about not being able to do any housework (OK, I really wasn't bummed about that), craftin' or walkin' I went to answer the door at one point and this is what I saw:


Those naughty bunnies got my tulip! I really didn't think they would get that close to the house (It was literally right at the bottom of by front step)! Remember this:

Oh well, I enjoyed it while it lasted!

Well, I haven't really been able to have much scrappy fun this past week, but I thought I'd share with you a card I made for a contest I was going to enter and then.... well, I didn't. lol. I have great intentions, but no follow-through!!!


So there's a few things happening on this card. I first stamped the background with the cute little flower image from the Stampin' Up Always set in versamark and then clear embossed it. Then I dyed my chipboard brackets using chocolate chip craft ink and set those aside to dry.
I used the curly label punch to create the pumpkin pie "frame" above and below the sentiment and although you can't see it in this photo, I popped up the heart image on the right.
Lastly I added one of those adorable mini library clips and tied a small bow around the top of the clip using linen thread. I really like how this one came out.
Well, that is all for today... thanks for stopping by!
