Count Your Blessings

Does being a klutz excuse me for being such a bad blogger? excuse
reason for more than a month since I last posted anything on my blog is
that I have been recovering from a serious fall in our garden. I tripped
and crashed into a brick wall. A trip to hospital revealed a broken toe, a
dislocated toe, a twisted knee, a sprained wrist, a whiplash-like injury  
to my neck, a 'jarred' spine, and a severe laceration to my elbow. It is 
4 weeks since my accident, but I am still hobbling around.

Enough of my woes... today is the 2nd Wednesday of the month, so that means
it is time for a new challenge at Words 2 Craft By. This month our quote is

'When I count my blessings, I count you twice'

This is a lovely old Irish saying, and it allows you lots of ways you can employ it.

This sweet image is from a rather old 12x12 sheet of vintage images by
Graphic 45. I always wanted lots of children, but sadly we were only able
to have one baby. This little cherub reminds me so much of our precious
son (now 44), who had big blue eyes, and very blonde curls.

Images - Graphic 45 'Little Darlings Collection'
Paper - Forever Friends 'New Arrival' 12x12 stack
Die - Joy Crafts 6002/0356
Sentiment - Computer generated 'French Script' font

For a chance to win a fabulous prize, pop over to Words 2 Craft By and check out my teamie's wonderful creations for some inspiration, then enter your own creation.

Until next time (hopefully soon),
Jennifer.  xx
