This was a great theme as there are so many different ways to interpret it. I chose to use my Memory Box Village Lamp Post die as I don't think I have ever used it before (NBUS). This year, I am trying to make a conscious effort to use my NBUS supplies rather than hoard them!
My back and hip are very sore at the moment and working at the craft table is quite painful. I kept this card quite simple, to shorten the time leaning over it. Expect to see me visiting all over blogland as I have been spending quite a bit of time sitting with my ice pack or heating pad! I had this same problem earlier this year and just got this under control 2 or 3 weeks ago. Today, I felt a slight pop as I was picking up some leaves...forcing me to limped into the house to find the icepack.
Luckily, I have several cards ahead so will schedule posts for the next short while. Enough wallowing...on with the card and the recipe...
