Friday Sketchers 110 Meets Magnolia Down Under #54

It has been ages that I have been able to sit down and do any kind of crafting. My absense was due to my husbands MS which has finally taken a toll on his body, his legs don't work like they used to so things have been quite hard around here. He is basically in a wheelchair now, so it takes it's toll on everyone in the family. In spite of all this, his spirits are high, and he has a great outlook on everything.

So after all that is said and done, I made this for my sons 20th birthday which is tomorrow. It is for both the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and the Friday Sketchers Challenge. Nothing like waiting til the last minute, but it did get me into crafting again, and I hope it sparks an interest again. Then again, my son never would have forgiven me if I purchased a store bought

Here goes...
