Good morning everyone.  Well things are settling down a little on the home front.  Greg had a hip replacement last week and arrived home on Friday.  It was a very restless weekend for both of us.  The poor man is in so much pain but had a much better day & night yesterday.  He will be having physical therapy 3 days a week for the next 4-6 weeks.  Fortunately they come to the house for this.  The people from short-term disability are already hounding him about a return date for work...Hmm He's walking with a walker and needs help putting on a pair of socks- don't see him going back any time soon. LOL.

I have  a fun little card for you today.  I absolutely loved this sketch and am very pleased with the outcome.  My sketch today comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  Man I would love to win this challenge!!! I can't get enough of these images.  My image today is a Bugaboo Stamp from the Stella Red Hat line.  I just love this gal!
Here is the sketch:
