My missing post

So sorry to have missed you guys yesterday. Trust me I would have rather been here in blog land there where I was. I don't know if I mentioned here before but I suffer from migraines. I have been lucky and haven't had any BAD migraines in a while. That is until yesterday. I tried doing everything I normally do. I had so many things to do yesterday that I had to get out no matter what. But as the day wore on it got worse and worse. It was so bad that I actually got sick, several times. Now that is very unusual for me. I very, very seldom get that ill. It just wasn't fun.

The worst part of it was, I have a friend with two adorable little girls and pregnant with her 3rd. I was asked to help her with bedtime because she is on bed rest. No problem, right? Well, it wasn't until after we get done putting the girls in their beds that I get this sudden urge to get sick, not great. I tried to hold it off until I could get home but no such luck. How embarrassing. It is one thing to get sick at home, which I don't even like to do that but to get sick at a friends house, ugh.

Anyway, you guys didn't come here to hear more of my woes. I had started a card yesterday and finally got to finish it today. It is probably a good thing I didn't get it done yesterday because I think I made it just a little better than it would have been yesterday.

I am still not completely happy with it but thanks to Lauren Meader and her copic tutorial I do like my coloring a little bit better on this one.

I started again with Gina K. Whimsical Autumn. The apple bunch is just adorable and I had to use it.

The kraft paper is from SU! and the blue and red are just extras I had in my stash box. I took some other kraft and stamped on it with PTI polka dot basics using SU! brilliant blue ink and PTI pure poppy. This card actually ended up being somewhat of a patriot card. Not what I intended. Just went with the colors in my striped PP.

The bridal flowers were colored with the same ink including PTI vintage cream. The green was colored with copic markers to look like leaves. Gotta love Lauren and her ability to inspire.

That is about it. I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

P.S. For some reason my computer is not letting me link anything. So if you want to find out where Lauren Meader's blog is just follow the think in my "Blogs I read daily" list.

Missy, I sure hope you are feeling better. Migraines are awful! Rest and take care of yourself.

You did a great job on your card, btw! I'm still trying to get those Copics figured out myself!

I am so sorry you were sick! I get migraines too and feel your pain, I get pukey with all of mine! I wish I had known and I would have found someone else to take care of Michelle at bedtime. Glad you are feeling better.
