365 Cards - #74

It's Wednesday evening here. . .late lol and I just finished my card so I thought I had better get it up here before I nod off hehehe and that is because I am on serious pain medication for my right knee, have to have a knee replacement on both knees but right one is worse after having fallen at work about eight years ago. . . .are you yawning yet lol!!  I really wanted to use my Trendy Trees set as it has been calling my name from the pile of new sets I got out of the 2009-2010 catalogue. . .but I had some trouble lining them up with the stamp-a-ma-jig as you can see.  It is really difficult to see the image on the plastic sheet so next time I will stamp it in black only on the sheet.  That is a tip for you Vicky if you get the set lol.  Also I didn't have Sunshine Yellow so I used More Mustard instead on the middle tree.  I was only going to put Hello as the sentiment but I thought what the heck in for a penny in for a pound!!  So without further ado here is my card for 365 Cards where today the challenge was to hand write your sentiment.

I am off to bed now so. . .
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

wonderful card and your handwriting is beautiful (i might skip this one as mine is so bad!) Sorry your knees are giving you pain, my old boss had both of his knees replaced and is so happy he did.

Michelle, beautiful card, love your colour combo and your sentiment looks great.
I hope your knee starts to feel a bit better soon - without the pain medication.
