Where does the time go? I rarely get time to craft any more. This weekend was a wedding out of town and cleaning my house. I miss my crafting time. I did get one quick card done for a swap. It was a flower swap.

The daffodils are just starting to peek out there pretty flowers around here so I thought this image by Ann Fenton would be perfect. It was last Thursday's free image and it's still free so you can check it out at the link. I colored it with Copic Markers: Y11, Y13,YG03 and YG13. I distressed the edges with Stampin' Up Certainly Celery. The background embossing is my favorite embossing folder Victoria. The designer paper is K&Company Citronella. The sentiment is from a Gina K set.  I added a ribbon with knot. I really liked how this turned out.
I am entering these challenges:
It rained all day today. Very gloomy! The medication for my hip helps but ti seems to wear off by the end of the day. My leg still goes numb so he thought maybe it was a pinched nerve. I have to go back to the doctor in a few weeks so hopefully they will look at them then. He wanted to see if the medication would take care of it. it helps but it certainly hasn't cured it. I am thankful though they it isn't worse. I can still walk and get around. The last two weeks I have just been maintaining my weight loss and no more downward movement of the scale numbers. Maybe this week. Thanks for stopping by. I am hoping to get some craft time in this week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Donna, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog - and coming here to express my appreciation, I find an absolutely stunning card! Your daffodils are gorgeous (so realisic!), showcased with beautiful framing. Hope your leg sees some improvement soon, and that your 'hectic' days settle down so allow for more crafting. You are incredibly talented!
