The Shabby Tea Room - Challenge #220

Ya know, sometimes it's just HARD being me!! ;)  I rushed to make a card, then rushed to take the picture and rushed to upload the picture to The Shabby Tea Room and even rushed to upload it in a blogger post and set it as a draft knowing that I would have plenty of time between Friday and Monday to write a little something up for y'all and post it on Monday morning...how well did that work out for me??? Jeeze!

Honestly I've been super busy (there's that treading water thing I talked about last week) and my ongoing pinched nerves issues (2 years now) that are just kicking my tushie these days. I had big plans for this weekend...hubby was at the Indy 500 so I had a nice quiet house. I planed on crafting, crafting, then maybe doing some crafting ohh and I was gonna get some crafting done ;) but it just didn't happen. I did get a little crafting in but the majority of my time was spent stretching out my muscles just like the physical therapist taught me to do so they'd release the bundles of nerves and just sitting on the couch in a comfortable position. While sitting on the couch I could have written this post but I totally FORGOT all about it!!! Sigh...I'm such an idiot! I apologize to everyone...I'm a slacker!!!

Well, better late than never??? Here's our beautiful inspiration picture...

I just want to get on that darling scooter and ride off somewhere...sigh!! ;)


As soon as I saw our little inspiration picture I knew I had the perfect image to use and how it would look great with some of the background papers from our sponsor!
