We've got the yuckies!

I really thought we could avoid the 'bugs' that are going around (and not the Cuttlebug kind unfortunately) but as of yesterday, they have hit us too. Clinton carried a fever for most of the day yesterday and was completely attached to my hip or lap the entire time! Ava wasn't hungry at dinner so I felt her head and she had a temp too. I put her in bed around 9:00 pm and at about 9:15 she was calling for me because she threw up in her bed. {sigh} I had to strip her down and give her a quick bath. About the time we got done with the bath Clinton woke up and started crying for me and it was back and forth like that all night. Today they are both still clingy and now I am starting to hurt all over. I CANNOT get sick! I don't have time and if I'm sick who will take care of the kids? Can't happen. So, I am rebuking it! Can I hear an Amen!?

Alright, moving on. I finally got this card put together. I had made a piece here and a piece there but it kept getting set to the side.

It's alright. Not my favorite. I like the trees (although I think I need to sponge some blue for the sky) and the paper but I don't know about the whole layout. Oh well, someone in my family will appreciate it!

  • Trees Three, All the Best {grass}, Riveting stamp sets (SU)
  • Karen Foster 1/8 inch snap stamps
  • Paper Studio patterned paper
  • Cuttlebug slide die
  • Slit punch (SU)
  • Aloe Vera and Pixie Dust Versamagic chalk ink, Close to Cocoa classic ink
  • ribbon
  • pop dots
If you haven't checked out Gina K's blog yet, you better get over there! She is giving away BIG prizes until April 1st when she (along with Erika Martin) will be announcing something great!

Also, Nicole Heady will be unveiling her new stamp set on April 1st!

These people better not be tring to pull any fast ones on April Fools day!! {wink}

Sorry to hear that the kiddos are sick. Praying that you stay healthy, as I know how hard it is to keep going sometimes, especially with sick lil' ones.

I think the card is adorable. I love how you sponged the trees and the rivet is super cute.
