Crazy week

I have been so busy this week that I just got a card finished for the Color Throwdown and CPS.  I had to take my son to the doctor to have his fasting blood sugar taken.  He has had trouble with this lately and when I took him the doctor she just about dismissed my concerns.  I asked for some blood work to be ran.   She called the next day with the results and said "oddly enough...his level is out of the normal range" (high).   Really?  I dont know why she thought I didnt know my son.   I knew he was having trouble with this.  So I am now waiting for the results on the second testing.  My husband is having some issues as well.  He is going to have to see a specialist on Tuesday.  I guess we will find out what is going on next week.  I have a bulging disc in my back around the left shoulder area that has been  hurting for over a year now.  I had an x-ray on Wednesday and they called with the results...Arthritis.  I tell you.  We are falling apart over here.

On a lighter note.  I took the sketch from CPS and the colors from the Color Throwdown and made a card to submit in the nick of time.  

The colors are a little off.  I tried to rush up and take a picture before the sun went down.  The green looks a little more grey.  It is dark by 4:30 or shortly after here.  That is the one thing I dont like about fall and winter months.
