Running A Wee Bit Behind

Well my friends, it has certainly been a wild and woolly week
in my household! A few weeks ago, my DH went for a checkup to the Dermatologist and was informed he had skin cancer. This week he had his surgery to have the area taken care of. The procedure he had done was called MOHS. They do everything in one day, including the reconstruction. I am happy to say he is doing well but was very sore the first few days. Praying now that the stitches heal properly and he has minimal scaring.
I was finally able to sit down and do a bit of stamping. I made this kick stand card for Lori's potluck challenge over at StampTV. I had never made a card like this before and I love the look of it! The stamped image is from the Eclectic Summer stamp set from Gina K. Designs. I double stamped the flower basket and added lots of pearls for dimension. The multicolored dp is from Basic Grey's, Sultry collection. I love the feel of satin ribbon, so I could not help but use it in two places. I left the card free of inside sentiment for now as I think it could be used for a multitude of different occasions.
I truly hope you are keeping war and having a wonderful Sunday! I plan on sticking a roast in the over to keep the chill out of the house and keep out tummies full!

Love your card as I said over at STV but had to come by for another look and more details.
Sorry to hear about your DH....Mine just went thru a battery of tests on his face a few weeks ago but fortunately he is ok. Wishing a speedy recovery to your DH.
