*Turning a Corner?*

I hate to jinx things, but I think I might be on the mend...  still coughing a bit but I feel better today than I have in more than a week.  And I'm coughing less.  I sure hope I've turned the corner on this cold.

A big thank you to everyone who's given advice on the cough.... last night I did a combination of Tylenol Cold PM (has a cough suppressant) and Otrivin nasal spray (did you know that a lot of night time coughing is caused by post nasal drip??!!) and I had a good nights' sleep with only a little coughing.  Nothing like in nights before.  I had really hoped that the Vicks on my feet covered with socks would work.... I love the smell of Vicks!

I'm almost done sharing the last cards from 2010....  after this one I think that there are four more.  I guess that means I need to make more than one design in a few hours of crafting eh?  I was finding it tough to think straight while sick so it was taking a while to get a card created.  Maybe I'll try to play for a bit today...

I really like how this card turned out... I love this image, really like my Copic talent in this instance.... and what's up with me and buttons??!!  I always thought I didn't like them and now I have a bunch on order!  Yikes!

Love the card and the coloring with the red is wonderful. I am now in sympathy with your cold, I have a cold and coughing like crazy, so if you have any ideas send them over. I am not liking winter :( So glad you are feeling better though, you have had a rough year and deserve some time off. Take care of yourself, my friend.

Very cute, Nancy! I need to use more buttons.

Glad to hear that you are on the mend...now hopefully the weather will be too and you can get out and get some fresh air...I am sure that would help too!
