Time to relax

It sounds so simple, but it always seems like we talk about it, but just never do it.  I made a card for a friend for her birthday who I hope gets a chance to do just that even if it is to get some rest/sleep.  This is the image for the Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter and they also have a yellow challenge.  I made this a center step card which is one of my favorite layouts.
I'm hoping for some time to relax and I don't want to clean and unpack since my Dad has helped me move my computer from the living room into area that was my husband's office.  Since he passed away it has taken me quite some time to clean it out.  We painted the room a light gray and a drop ceiling was put in so the plumbing to my upstairs bathrooms could be accessed if need (has happened several times since the plumbing is over 30 years old).  He also put in some LED lights so the room is nice and BRIGHT.  He woodwork has all been stained and varnished so it truly is a new room.  This is just for my computer and printer not where I make my cards.
