Water You Up To?


Water you up to?  What am I up to?  Well, it's been an upside-down unexpected week for us.  If you've been following along you heard me say that my husband broke his wrist playing hockey a few weeks ago.  He went back to our doc because he was still having some lingering side pain,  she send him for an ultrasound and a few hours later told him to get to the hospital, his spleen had to come out ASAP.  Long story short....eventually that's what happened.  Your spleen is supposed to be the size of a fist and my husband's was more the size of a football.  So, he's still in the hospital, spleen-less, in lots of pain, still struggling with a fever from a source we can't pinpoint, and I've been bouncing back and forth between the hospital, basketball tournaments, kids and a wee bit of crazy-ness.  And right now...real exhaustion.  

So I may not be around much in the days ahead...or I may just pull out some designs you haven't seen yet that were for submission that didn't get accepted.  Time is a bit precious here.  I know that many of you are faithful prayer warriors and we appreciate your prayers.  

This watermelon card is stamped on Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black with the set called  Wild for Watermelon, paired with Pistachio Color Made Easy Cardstock and Poppy Cardstock, colored up with Copics.  The background is scored with the Scor Bug tool and the little "watermelon seeds" are Candi colored black with copics.
