...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...

wishing you all a fabulous scrappy happy week with lots
of love, laughter and sunshine...
