Sweet Sketch Wednesday #93 Just under the wire!

Goodness it seems like things have been hectic here this week! Spring break started a few days later than scheduled because of the "big ice storm of 2011" here in El Paso... better to make up the days now than at the end of the school year! Then on out first full day of spring break, my seven year old son decided it would be fun to balance on the edge of the wet bathtub .. of course he fell, cutting his head open, and he and I spent 8 hours (at night) at the hospital getting staples in his head. He was a trooper, even sleep deprived and in pain as he was, he had time to give me a hug. He is the inspiration, along with the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, for this card.

Oh Christi, I love your ladybugs! The paper pieceing is so perfect! I love the richness of your papers but I love how it feels like the ladybugs are in the blades of the flower garden! So the proportion is fantastic!
