Robyn's Fetish challenge #96

HELLO everyone! I am a day late with this post. Most of my followers know why. 
But just quickly:
My mom had a heart attack and is in the hospital, now in the rehab section to strengthen her  before going home.
My Husband lost sight in his right eye (I originally miss posted that it was his left eye) On Tuesday afternoon. 2 trips to the retinologist, laser treatment...going back to work tomorrow
Son; 2 trips to the ER in 3 days for a kidney stone...we think he finally passed it, but he is dealing with the inflammatory pain of the trauma the stone caused on it's travels.
In the middle of all this I had a trip to the "supposed" last WC doctor.
Due to hubs eyesight...I've been doing all the driving...Mom- 2 hours away. WC Doc almost 2 hours away.
to and from getting son on the night of his first trip to the ER...1 hour round trip.
TOO much in TOO short of a time period- my worst knee (gas and brake leg)  and the hand/wrist on the left and elbow on the right (not including neck and the impingement syndrome in both shoulders)
I was in severe pain for 2-3 days...I didn't even come on the puter much.

so apologies!

onto the challenge this week!

Very cute! I like that green felt ribbon. It matches the image perfectly. Nice color combinations, too!

Cool - I love that sticky felt thingy. I bet that's really tricky to use though ? I'd probably end up with it stuck on my fingers or anywhere else EXCEPT where I wanted it to be. :-D xx
