Fabulous Fall card made using the Create a Friend cartridge

  Hello, friends!


It is Sunday morning and I am getting all of my posts ready for the week because as soon as I am done I have to go to the hospital. I fear dislocated my knee and need to get that sorted out. My mom is worried I will need surgery, so I am getting all of this stuff done just in case. If you could send me some prayers that would be great. I need my leg to be ok because my craft room is on the second floor of my house. Priorities priorities!  I will take my laptop with my though, so I can answer questions and take care of all of the business stuff. Please don't hold off ordering this week because of this. After all, I have to pay the hospital bill someway *wink*

Today's card is for a fall challenge on Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge. I made it using the Create A Friend cartridge and the Fall Harvest stamp set. The background of the Twilight paper is stamped using Twilight ink. I really love how this turned out!

This card is manipulated using this CCR, so if you want to make it you really will need to use my file.

Melanie, take care of your leg! I dislocated my patella in the spring & had arthroscopic surgery in June . If you have ac water aerobics class near by, get in the water as soon as you can. That helped me more that 4 weeks of physical therapy. Your card, as always, is beautiful. Thanks for another give away. Be well!
