Greeting Farm Card

greeting farm 003
Good Morning, what a gorgeous day it was yesterday in N.Ireland and today looks like it might be a scorcher, woo hoo, love it.  Ok, I’ll give you a bit of a laugh before I tell you about my card. Yesterday I was out playing basketball with my dog, like you do and she was getting very excited, as was I, I’m pretty damn good at shooting, so as shot the ball into the net I ran to grab the ball before Ella (my dog) got it, we collided and  she took the legs from under me, I shot into the air and landed on my hands and knees on the concrete, I’ve never got up so quick in case someone saw me and now I’m nursing two scabby knee’s lol, feel like a 7 year old. when I told my son what had happened and showed him my knee’s he looked at me in disgust lol, then said “you were playing basketball with the dog?” I just looked at him and said “Sorry, wee man, I’ll start acting my age eh?” he just said “Yeah, then you won’t get hurt”. I felt like I was the child and he was the parent lol.
Anyway, while nursing my sore knee’s I decided to dust off an old greeting farm stamp I had and had a colour,  I had seen a tutorial somewhere about making ribbon rosette's and of course I couldn’t find it but I think I got the gist of it, so had a bit of fun making this polka dot rosette, not bad eh?
Hope you enjoy your day what ever you are doing, watch out if playing ball games, helmet and knee pads are a must.
