Crazy4Challenge 135-The great outdoors!

I was just thinking about how lovely the weather has been as of late! What a perfect challenge for a warm spring day!!! Our challenge to you is to create a card with an outdoor or garden theme!!!

These stamps of life stamps and dies are perfect for that!!!! I love Steph's Dragonfly die cut that coordinates with the Butterfly2build and Creations2fill stamp set. The wing stamps for the butterfly also coordinate with some of her floral sets! how cool is THAT!!!!!

I also used a Spellbinders Label Die and the pretty Memory Box Circle Floral Die, both available at Scrappin' Great Deals!!!!

I decided not to put a sentiment on the card yet, because I'm not sure what I plan to do with it. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon!!!!

Soooo it's been pretty hectic around here. I want to get around to posting some gorgeous photo's from Victopia weekend, but it's been a crazy week with Jon's appointments, dealing with the resource teacher at the school, the physiotherapist, the tutor and work!! Unfortunately Jon took a hit to the head at Football tryouts a couple of weeks ago, which seemed to reactivate a concussion that he had incurred in the fall. I've now learned more about concussions, their effects and the rehabilitative process. Fortunately, physiotherapy can be helpful in the healing process.

Here are a couple of pictures of Jon at his session

Fortunately the concussion hasn't seemed to affect his fine motor

 He's been doing a lot of relaxing as of video games, very little t.v. and other than walking, no exercise!!! He's missing Rugby this spring, but has been to a game to cheer on his teammates.

He found the heat therapy VERY HOT!!! He's a warm blooded fella, so he thought he would surely not make it very long with the heat pack around his neck. He did say that he felt very good afterward though!

I'll keep you all posted with his progress.

Hope you'll play along with the challenge. Please click on the links on my sidebar to check out the other crazy creations and to link up your creations on the blog!
