Versatility & Busyness!

So I finally got to sit down with my card making supplies & whip off a couple cards.
It has been a few days since my last post, as I got hit with the stomach flu in the wee hours of Sunday morning & spent the entire day Monday recovering. I had the shakes, hot flashes, a temp of 38.7 degrees, aches, pains & the runs. Too much info, I know, but hey, we'll all friends here!! haha! Tuesday I started these cards, & this a.m. I finished them.

I used the same image for both cards & fully intended to make them both get well cards, but then thought what better way to make ONE image more versatile then to use it for different types of cards. The image is from the Prairie Fairy & is called Snails Tail. This image & many others can be purchased at the Prairie Fairy Digital Stamp Store.

Both of my cards are based on the Card Patterns Sketch (with extras). The above card is good for Pollycraft Mondays (pink, brown & green or yellow [I chose yellow]) & Your Next Stamp Challenge (stitching).
The card below is a birthday card & the inside says " grow up! Happy Birthday"
I know I am a bit early but this card is my DT card for Fairy Fun Fridays where the theme is eyelets & string. My alternative to string is hemp.
I am entering this card in Creative CArd Crew (happy birthday).
Now as for my busyness.....since I lost a couple day with being sick I have realized how far behind the housework has gotten. I need to go do laundry, mop floors & get rid of all those lil dust bunnies on my shelves and under my bed! A--Choo!! Ifeel better but now the kids are sneezing with runny noses! Do the illnesses ever end~ To top it off I have to get ready for Scrapaganza this weekend- 8 am - 8 pm full day of scrapbooking, card making and crafting!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!
See you soon!
