*Go Away!*

Not you!

The cough.

It's still here.... and it's still making me miserable.

I tried the Vicks on the soles of my feet (with socks over top) last night and all it gave me was uncomfortable feet (I hate socks).

I didn't sleep well.  I got up at 7 and was back asleep by 8 this morning until 10 when the phone rang.  Since 10 I have showered and dressed (and made myself beautiful LOL), made icing and iced a birthday cake for tonight, peeled and cut potatoes and carrots, got cauliflower and broccoli ready to cook, and started the Yorkshire puddings.

My father in law had a birthday on the weekend and this is the first time we've all been available to do his birthday dinner... we're doing a nice roast beef with all of the trimmings.

I'm already exhausted.... what will I be like by the time dinner is over??

There might be a nap in my future.

But first I want to craft... I promised a friend I'd make her daughter's 13th birthday invitations and I haven't started yet.... I need to at least get an idea!!  That's on the agenda for today (I hope!)

Until I get those done, here's a card I made a month or so ago.... when I was taking a little break from Christmas designs...
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi
*Images: Whippersnapper; Hero Arts
*Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
*Tools: Big Shot; Spellbinders Nestabilities; unknown embossing folder
*Embellishments: unknown grosgrain ribbon
*Challenges:  Mojo146

I really like how you can sponge colour around a layer to make it look like there is another layer under there.... sometimes it's just what a layer needs to make it pop!

Great card, love how you sponged around, it definately gives look of another layer and love the colors. so hope you feel better, you need to just stay in bed and sleep all day.
