A Terrible Day!

Hi,
Can I tell you how terrible my day was yesterday afternoon--I left work and started my car and I thought it sounded a bit funny.  As I was driving on Interstated 75 North heading home my check engine light kept flashing and the car wasn't driving well.  I called the dealer and they said to pull over right away because this was bad.  So I barely made it to the rest area and then there I sat for close to 2 hours waiting on the tow truck--YUCK!!! My whole day done with.  My mom picked up the kids for me and then I had to get a loaner card--so by the time I got home it was close to 6:00 pm--and all I kept thinking about was --NO SCRAPPING TIME for me-LOL!!!!

I used up some of my October Afternoon scraps to make this cute card.  I love their playing cards.  I am not usually a ribbon person but i loved this one.

Have a wonderful and crafty day! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh I'm so very sorry Mary Pat! I know how you feel. Been there done that. What's worse is knowing we only have so many scrapping moments and as we face our disaster we see them ebb away!! LOL. Love this card and I love the ribbon. Cute.
Hope today is much better day:)
