Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling....

Diddle, diddle, dumpling,
my bad back,
Stamped away until the big attack,
One leg up and one leg back,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling,

BAH!! I am typing on one leg because I put my back out - again - don't know what I did, but I did it......chiropractor on Monday - 2 whole days away.....ugh........

Anyway, enough whining, this card is for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT).

Are you getting sick of this paper yet? - Can't help it......It's from K & Company and I am in love with it and I might even marry it.....oh yah...

The base is Kraft, layered with Very Vanilla which was stamped with Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounders, Pretty Pattern and Spanish Script in Ranger distress ink Antique Linen.

The leaf pattern is from Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms and the flowers were cut out from the Cuttlebug flower die and popped up on the leaf pattern. Then I added a few Autumn Leaves buttons, that are not threaded although I did have them threaded but then they were too bulky so I just took it out!!

The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms Script Essential Expressions.
Sorry this is such a lame description, but in case you didn't know my back is freakin' killing me!

AND we have to go to this dang guy's retirement party this afternoon which is cocktails, dinner and dancing..... *ouch*.....

....and he isn't really *dang* - but he was when I put my back out - we have to make an appearance......but the dancing.....ugh - not happening.
