sketch #55

Hello there everyone!

This sure has been one busy week.....My husband and I have been married for 4 years today!!! We drove to Berlin on Tuesday for a little anniversary vacation and did a little site-seeing to Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, what's left of the Berlin Wall, lots of fun history stuff to see! Then, on our way home on Wednesday afternoon, we wrecked our car on the Autobahn and had to spend the night in the hospital :/ My husband and I had to stay overnight because I hit my head on the dashboard of our car pretty hard, so they wanted to make sure I didnt have a concussion. Luckily, our son came out of the accident without a scratch!!! Not too many people can say that when it comes to crashes on the autobahn! We got to come home super early this morning and with my sore head, I managed to make this card:

The sketch challenge #55 for Operation Write Home can be found here. I loved the sketch for this week, but was not very impressed by the way mine turned out lol. I think we are all our worst critics sometimes tho, so Im just hoping the person who gets this card likes it enough to send it home to someone they love :)

Happy Friday to you all! Now I'm off to try out this week's Mid-Week Throwdown!!
Happy Crafting to you all!
