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
