Mom's aren't allowed to be sick

The flu went around our house the last two weeks. I thought I missed it, took airborne, vitamins, cleaned, disinfected. However, yesterday terrible headache and cough. No fever though. I went to bed early. Today same headache and no voice.

Today armed with some motrin and big cup of Tea, I took the advice of my blogging sister Marge and went to my craft room to make me feel better.

Having SBS8 sketch challenge posted by Anita, I was ready to create and play with some new paper and embellishments.

card recipe:

cs: lovely liliac, regal rose, tempting turquoise, dsp flowers for you.

stamps: loads of love and accessories

ink: black stazon, lovely liliac

accessories: flower slide from new hodgepodge hardware, cosmo glitter, 2 way glue pen, watercolor crayons (bold brights, neutrals), slot punch, celery grosgrain.

shhh... I have been bad, brought to other side..... I could not resist the new Riley the moose stamps from Hanna stamps. I try to be only an SU girl (got to support myself). But they are too darn cute. I got the St. Pat's day one as well, nothing like a moose with a beer in his hands.

Anyways, I needed to make a card for my Sisters birthday coming up in Early March. She is a big coffee fan like myself. So, I used same SBS8 Sketch challenge and did this card as well...

Isn't he cute???? I used all SU paper, ink and embellishments though.
cs: purely pomegrante, close to cocoa, whisper white, berry bliss dsp
ink: stazon black, used ink pads to water color
access: pomegrante stitched ribbon, pip brad, slot punch, cosmo glitter, ticket corner punch.
Crafting made me happier, now off to finish laundry then maybe a nap!!
Sorry I am not up to leaving any comments on all my blog roll buddies today :{
