Not a very good weekend renovating this week.  Oh, the work is coming along nicely but I have come home injured!!!  On Saturday I did a 'face plant' through the very high set back door onto a concrete floor.  Consequently I have injuries to both legs, right arm and left hand.  Until yesterday when the massive bruise at the base of my thumb went down I couldn't grip anything.  It proved a bit of a bother as I use my left hand a lot.  Left leg superficial, right knee still bruised, grazed and swollen.  Right arm took the hardest hit and is still quite sore, grazed, bruised and very swollen.  I was surprised that I managed to keep my head clear of the floor.  Luckily a very kind neighbor patched me up so that I could carry on.

Anyway enough of my tale of woe.  My card was made quite a while ago but never got shown on here.  I can't remember who made the stamps, I think it might have been Stamping Up but don't quote me on that.  The background has been embossed with an embossing folder and I have added Stickles here and there.  The main snowflake has been stamped with a punched one on top of it.  Another snowflake, stamped sentiment, ribbon and gems finish it off.
