The bug got me :(

I was smug at the bug...my whole family got sick except me. I stayed home from work Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to nurse them. I used the time they were sleeping (which was a lot!) to stamp and create...and boy did I create! I sat on the couch about 11pm Friday night with my laptop editing images to post when my stomach started doing bad things. Yep, the bug caught up with me. Totally incapacitated me all day Saturday and I haven't gotten much done today either. Here it is almost dinner time on Sunday night and I haven't made dinner...nor do I plan to. But I do have to get a postin'!

This card design was inspired by Denise over at The Paper Landscaper. She's a fantastic artists from whom I get inspiration daily! I loved the simple design which is great for mass producing. I could also keep the design flat enough to mail without any extra padding. I tried my hand at some back lighting with the Prismas and OMS. The red came out ok, but the blue on the season's greeting got a bit mucky looking. So on the penguin I used I Kandee chalks instead. The polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny and has velvet ribbon on top. The holly paper is from Heidi Grace. The I embossed swirls on the top panel of each and the images are from Inkadinkado.
I am still really tired but I have so much to do. I am headed down to the basement to work on some laundry. My poor husband asked if it was too much trouble for me to wash some underwear for him. LOL! I guess I could manage it in between postings. Have a great night!
