One of those days....

Murphy's Law.  Yes - yesterday it was in full swing!  Did you ever just have one of those days where you just almost want to stand in one spot and not move a muscle or talk to a single soul for fear that something else could happen?  Yesterday was that day for me.  The day itself wasn't bad - it was rather uneventful to be honest.  But when I got home - oh boy.  Pulled open the kitchen drawer and the whole face of the drawer come off.  Then opened the freezer to get some ice only to find the ice melted...and everything in the freezer ruined....and our fridge is going out.  Ok, it is out but it's still plugged in....hopefully today we can get a new one.  I'll have to call mom to the rescue this morning to come and rescue the food in the fridge before it goes bad.  What would we do without our moms.

But enough of that - today is a new day.  And it's also time for a new challenge at Digistamps4Joy!  Our theme is "Anything Goes".  How easy is that!  Believe me - after yesterday I need something easy.  LOL!!!

I used the image called Spring Time.  I embossed the base with Swiss Dots and just used a piece of paper from my stash for the layer and turquoise strip and kept with the whole dot theme with the paper and ribbon.  The ribbon was a leftover piece form the stash as well.



I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you don't get a visit from Murphy!  God bless you!!!!
