Glitter Ribbon Card

Hi All!

I hope you've all had a lovely week.  Here in SA the weekends almost over!  At least there's some long weekends coming up next week, that's definitely something to look forward too!!  

I have to tell you all.  You know in the cartoons when they fall forward, the cartoons bounce twice and then come to a landing.  Well,... I fell like that on Friday.  I had on hard shoes (the soles do not flex), walked really fast, kinda stepped into a hole, and went flying!  When I finally did come to landing, I thought I was broken...  Crawled 1m to the fence, hoisted myself up, quickly looked around to see if someone saw me (no one did Thank God!).  And then assessed the damage.  I had "cement burn" on my stomach, and I had lightly sprained my ankle!  As the day progressed, all the muscles in my arms started aching.  I couldn't turn my cars steering wheel it was to painful!  Yesterday, It had felt as if I was hit by a train, so I slept most of the day, and today I feel all better!  My DH just laughed and said falling is my thing!... I do tend to fall a lot....  When something like this happen, what do you do?  Are you angry, do you cry?  I just laugh, 'cause really, what's the point.  You have to be able to laugh at yourself!

Any How!  Here's a card I made this morning :
