A House of Cards

Thursday, September 11, 2008

We have had a fun couple of weeks...

NOT! The Sunday before Labor Day we were winding up the day, getting ready to rent a movie off of the iControl, and settle in for a nice quiet evening. My husband asked Harper to go put her scooter away, before it got too dark. Well, before you know it, I hear a child screaming outside (you know... the kind of scream where you can tell something is really wrong). Harper decided to ride her scooter down to the garage, started going too fast and wiped out. I guess she put hands out to break the fall, and in doing so, broke her wrist. So, now she is the owner of a very orange (almost fluorescent) cast on her right arm.

Kids... you just gotta love 'em! We have already been back for a check-up and everything seems to be healing OK. We go back next Friday, and we will see if the cast can come off in exchange for a brace. It is nice that kids heal so quickly.

Other than that, I have been trying to get over a cold that just doesn't want to go away. I have my husband to thank for that. Thanks, hon! ;) I guess it is just that time of year though, because I keep hearing about others being sick too. So if you have been, take it easy and get lots of rest!

In crafty news, I have been working on Lime Tart projects recently. I can't show you them just yet, but I can give you some sneak peeks. I don't think I will get in too much trouble for that. I hope not, anyway. I got to work with the September Half Tart. Here is a picture of the kit.

Lots of yummy goodness in this kit! It is so pretty and girly. I think my projects definitely have that sort of feel to them. Here are the sneaks:

The Full Tart and A La Tarte are full of wonderful goodies too. I can't wait to see what the other girls came up with this month! You can check out what the design team has been working on this month in the Lime Tart gallery on the 14th, or you can get a few sneaks over at the Lime Tart blog. If you like the kits, you can purchase them here in the US at Odd Bird Planet. Outside the US, you can purchase them from Lime Tart.

OK, it's time to go get the kids to bed (and maybe myself too ;) ). I think I've got you all linked up, so happy surfing! :)

Sorry about Harper's accident,....she wears her orange cast well. I broke my right arm twice but we didn't have those designer casts back in the early years.
I love your sneak peak and I can't wait to see what you do, you awesome girl you.

Oh my dear...poor little thing, but looks like she's lovin' that orange cast. Hopefully she'll make a great recovery. I know that scream all to well when my daughter dislocated her shoulder after I swung her around by her arms, (you know that game?)...it happened when she was 3 and I felt like the worst mother in the world.

your projects in the LT gallery are breathtaking. Just gorgeous again, as always Roree...you are so inspiring. :)

have a great week. :)
