Live in the Sunshine ...

Hi guys.
     Wow,  I am so sorry for my lack of being around lately.  Just when I think I am back into making cards and blogging something new comes up.
     On Monday morning I woke up with a temp and a very bad migraine.  I really didn't think too much of it at first, then I thought that I was just getting whatever the M&Ms had been sick with a week or two ago.  Finally late Tuesday and after two days of sleep and feeling really really bad  I found out that this is all due to a tooth that has turned into a really bad infection.  It has caused my whole body to go all haywire.  I know that I should have taken care of it a VERY long time ago, but I hate, hate dentist.  : (
     Anyway getting on with it.  After taking a prescription for a couple of days now,  I am starting to feel better and heading off to work this morning for the first time this week.  I hate this very much, but now I have to go back to the dentist and have it worked on just as soon as all of the infection has cleared up.  Did I mention how much  I really really do HATE going to the  dentist and that nasty smell that comes from their offices.  No kidding...
     On the brighter side I am finally feeling good enough to share a card that I made.  This card I made specifically for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge.  It is the first time that I have done this and the very first time that I was able to re-size my picture and load it onto the SCS gallery.  Needless to say, I am very proud of myself for that in and of it's self.  lol.... It really doesn't take much to make me happy.  lol..
     So, as you can win a $20 gift certificate to MFT if you use one of their stamps I pulled out the first stamp that I ever purchased from them.  Mind you I only have a total of two, but I am hoping to rectify that issue in the future.  bahhaaahaa....  I am sure you all know about this sketch challenge over on the SPS sight, but even if you don't use one of their stamps you can still win a $15 gift certificate if you get picked.

 I think this sketch is a very fun one, and so I decided to go with an end of the summer/one final summery card for this.  I had a great time with 'ep' paper and I pulled some buttons from my stash to make them look like the sun, the cloud and the flower from the paper. 
     Hope you all enjoy and have a great Thursday.  Wish me luck.
Hugs, Lisa G

Love it!! Awesome bright and happy colors!! It's perfect!

Glad you're feeling better! I love my dentist! I wish I could go for a cleaning every 3 months instead of 6! (I know, I'm a dork!)

Not only did you use one of the cutest images I've seen in a long time, but the inside quote makes me saw "awwwww!"

Oh, I feel your pain, I hate the dentist too, would rather do almost anything else to get out of going. Hope you are feeling better! Your card is sooo cute! Love those bright colors and the little buttons across the top, you still do wonderful work even when you are sick!
