Thinking of You Trees…and a knee injury


TGIF…for real! I didn’t create anything tonight because I needed to take it easy. At lunch, I had quite the fall down some concrete steps…UGH! Somehow, I missed a small step, at the top of the flight, causing my leg to give out. My knee absorbed all of the fall, so it’s…busted, swollen, scraped, and bruised! How do you scrape your knee with jeans on and not tear a hole in the denim? Well I did just that today! I could have cried after I got up realizing I really hurt myself, but didn’t and continued to get my lunch from the restaurant (picture me: limping inside)! Not too much stops me from eating, which means I’m fine!

Anyway, enough about my clumsy fall. Today, I’m sharing with you one of my Stampin’ Up! only cards that I made earlier this week. When I first saw these little baby, baby trees (SIDENOTE: saying that reminds me of Will Farrow in Talledega Nights reference to sweet little baby, baby Jesus), I had to have them. It’s pretty plain and simple, but most of my cards are!

Hope you have a great weekend. I’ll be doctoring my knee and making a baby scrapbook. I’m off to elevant this puppy! Later!:)
