...before i get chattin about the creative side of me...
i'd like to thank 'everyone' for all  their thoughts and prayers for my dh. he had his surgery, which went well. we did run into complications 2 days after the fact and i ended up having to call the paramedics. he had another emergency stay for observation...and we are now 'home'. it's been quite an emotional and eventful week to say the least! we appreciate everyone's love and support through this time and i can not thank you enough. dh has been resting and moving quite slow. the healing time will take quite a while, but i'm just so grateful 'he's home' and for each and everyone of you.
yesterday...it was so beautiful outside i went and bought some pansies just to cheer me up and take the opportunity to enjoy some sun. ah...that felt good. i love playing in the dirt and planting flowers...yep, that's right ~ pansies! gotta love those hardy little flowers ~ and oh there's 
so many colors to choose from! 
and speaking of feeling good...i got a little scrappy happy today and created a card using the sketch from
sweet sketch wednesday.
'home sweet home' ~ which is exactly how both
dh and i are feeling at this time...
don't look too closely at my coloring...omg
i ran out of ink in my copic when coloring her dress! ack!
and here's arlana's sketch
thanks for poppin by!
wishing you all a fabulous scrappy happy week with lots
of love, laughter and sunshine...

Hi Melody thank goodness all went well with your DH's op and he's back at home. If he had complications he's better having them earlier on and closer to the hospital. Your Pansies look lovely I bought some black ones one year and also orange Marigolds they looked awesome planted together in the garden. Love your card with Tilda, I wouldn't haven't known that you had run out of ink I just thought you had done amazing colouring and shading which you have. Love your card and your wonderful embellishments. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck, I missed you last week.

Sounds like it sure was an emotional week but so glad your DH is home now and you can give him lots of TLC.

Take care and have a wonderful day.
