Always


Finally, a card worth sharing! I awoke last Monday with my very first ever sore throat and it was a dozy. I decided to wait it out because seeing all that Kathy has been through with doctors I am reluctant to seek medical help at all cost. I figured it would go away as mysteriously as it arrived but I had no such luck:( it only got worse (if that was possible!). I then developed swollen glands and pains shooting in my back with every breath. Finally, I drug my sorry butt to doctor on Thursday and was given some good drugs and now I'm on the mend but my creativity is not yet:) I guess that pretty well explains the lack of post this past week.

I recently saw many pretty samples with this stamp set on other blogs I just had to buy it. The floral scroll is by Autumn Leaves that I picked up at Joann's in their dollar bin. I used a paper stack by Me & My Big Ideas called "Coastal Culture" that I bought on sale for $2.00 for the background and color inspiration.

Gorgeous card Nettie!! I'm sorry that you got sick, especially this time of year. I always expect it in the winter but not in June. Wishing you well!

Beautiful card, Nettie! I just LOVE red. So sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you are all better soon. It tends to ruin a girls mojo to be down and out. ;) Kelly
