Sketch Frenzy Friday

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I am so glad it is Friday Yippee! We are having friends over on Saturday night, I so need some time with friends and a rest!

This weeks Sketch was brought to us by Jennifer Weide. I really like the simple lines in this sketch. I felt you could go dramatic or use a more simplistic approach to it. I think to did a little of both.
Here is Jennifer's Sketch:
This is what I came up with:

And this is the inside:

We would love to see what you have created by using this sketch for inspiration.  
Thanks for stopping by and now it is your turn to go and create something fun.

If you want to know what is going on with my mom I posted a bit of our weeks adventures for ya.

Another week flew by. Does it ever stop???
 My Mom is now in a rehabilitation hospital and is adjusting from Shoulder Replacement Surgery last Thursday. Somehow she contracted a Staff Infection since her surgery in late March. They had to go in take everything out re-do it and put new parts back in. She is on a heavy dose of antibiotics for 6 weeks to try to get ride of the infection. She is at a really good care facility- supposedly but someone has to be there at all times to watch them! I know everyone is overworked these days but Really!!! This is the best rehabilitation Skilled Nursing Facility I have ever seen. It is Private and reminds me of a day spa Really!!! But what a week!
I just know it will take a few weeks of everyone to get her and her special needs figured out for example:
1. She is allergic to bell peppers of any kind it is on her chart and what happened... they gave her soup with bell peppers in it even though the lunch order specifically said NO BELL PEPPERS???
2. She is not supposed to have any showers yet! She told her nurse this morning and the nurse said that was not true and was to take a shower. My Mom said the nurse said it was ok for her to take a shower. That is NOT True and she is not supposed to have any showers?? Again it is on her chart???
3. Some random man was in her bathroom last night when she got up to go to the bathroom. Seems his worker fell asleep??? He is quite harmless and is right across the hall from her room? But boy did she get a fright in the middle of the night.
My Mom is 86 years old and very tiny so she now gets intimidated easily. Some one has to stick up for her. That job is left for my Sister and I to do. The sad thing is, in her prime she was really on top of her game and hell on wheels, nothing intimidated her. I think they (The hospital employees) think that all older people are senile NOT MY MOM She is really quite resourceful when she is not ill! Still drives, runs her own house hold and lives alone.
I am grateful that she is doing as well as she is considering her age.
Get well soon Mom!!!! I will keep you all posted as the weeks continue. Looks like she will be there for a month or more.
Chat soon Patrice
