hate being sick!


For the record, being sick is never fun for anyone. I have always hated it - especially when I have the flu and am throwing up - like I am now.

However, here is a card that I did over the weekend before I got horribly sick. I have a few more in the closet in case I don't recover quickly :)

Very quick and simple card. I created a mask, and sponged the inside with bashful blue ink. I then stamped the snowflakes in bashful blue and almost amethyst inks with the mask still on.

Once I removed the mask, I stamped the large snowflake and the word Joy in night of navy ink. The Joy ended up crooked as I coughed while I was stamping. If I had only known what that one cough would lead to...... oh well!

Tied some bashful blue taffeta ribbon around the top into a knot - I cant tie nice bows - and done!

Very nice no-layer card that will be nice and easy to post to family overseas back home in Canada. This past weeks challenge at In Love With Stamping was to create a no-layers card - you can view the challenge thread HERE

All supplies from Stampin'Up. The snowflake spot stamp set was used.
