*Another Sympathy Class Sample*

What started out as a not so great day has gotten much much better.

Last night we were at my mother in law's for dinner to celebrate Bruce's birthday (and my belated birthday). I started getting a headache soon after we got there so I took a few Ibuprofen and attempted to get through the evening. I got a couple of great gifts (including the cake pan by Wilton that makes a cake in the shape of a giant cupcake), ate a good dinner... and then the headache quickly turned into a migraine. By the time I left to come home, I could barely move my head without wanting to throw up. Everything bugged me.

But of course, I had taken Ibuprofen only a few hours earlier so it probably wasn't a good idea to use some of that wonderful Excedrin Migraine I picked up the last time we were in the US.

I came home and went straight to bed where sleeping was difficult due to the pain. I woke up at 7:30 this morning still with a migraine. I tried to call my boss to see if I could stay home, but I couldn't get ahold of her. So I went into the shop for 9:30 and she was there and told me to go home. We had a few things we needed to talk about and by 10am my morning dose of Excedrin had me good to go. So I decided to stay at work.

I had a good day at work including a belated birthday cupcake, a birthday card from my boss and a good 6 month review.

And above all else, I am so happy that my damn headache is gone..... it was the worst one I have *ever* had....

So, the card for today is another of the cards we'll be making in my August class... sympathy cards. Unfortunately I have come to realize that there isn't a lot of "learning" for these cards, but at least it's a great way for the ladies to make a few cards to have on hand for those difficult times.

The sentiment is by Boxer, the flower by Autumm Leaves. We will using Nestabilities to create the embossed frame. Since taking the photo I also added a brad on either side of the embossed frame. I'm hoping that the students will learn that a one layer card is an OK thing to do!

Tonight I plan on hitting the craft room while Bruce is off playing hockey to work on some Christmas and Halloween ideas using the two new Imaginice lines. Gotta get some ideas for my September classes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry to hear about the migraine. Glad that you are feeling better and that your day turned out good for you. Thanks for the tip on the bindings, I think it's be much better to buy in bulk :)
Do you know if there will be many different colors for the binding?

Thank goodness you are feeling better! It seems like many people are experiencing these dreadful head aches! I wonder if it has something to do with our planet?! Deb
