Happy day to you all!!! Thank you for the well wishes. My youngest is doing much better and just about over his sickies. My oldest is still in the mist of it but I think he is headed for recovery as well. He still has a bad cough but he is getting medicine and with the sleep I am making him get he should be done by the end of the week *crossing my fingers*.
My headache finally died away last night so that was nice as well. The only weird thing is that after my headache was easing up I got a bad case of the quesies. My headaches make me feel sick to my stomach but it seemed to get worse after my headache started to go away. That is very strange. I woke up still feeling a little sick to my stomach. I guess I will take some more pepto and hope it goes away.
I was able to get in some crafting last night though. It felt good to get back to my work but it was hard to get started. My sister directed me to a challenge blog "Caardvarks" that was offering some goodies from Taylored Expressions. A new stamp set called "Whimsical Wishes".
The challenge the posed was to make a project using a tree. I was excited because I have not yet got to experience any of Taylor's stamps. Plus, I have a tree stamp from PTI that I have inked up but has been neglected lately.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do but I did know I wanted to use my new cardstock from PTI and the new ink pad that I got in my last order as well.
I am happy with how it turned out but in my opinion it is obvious that my mojo needs a little help.
My goodness!!! I was doing some blog surfing and found this cool blog challenge called "365 cards" It looks awesome and I look forward to doing more with them. Their challenge is to use a leaf on a project. Well, since I made this tree card for "Caardvarks" that has leaves on it I had to enter it into that challenge as well. Go check them out here. It is great.
