I hate being sick!!! It happens so rarely that when I do get sick it is not a pretty thing LOL! Some sort of flu bug got me but good - ugh! Coughing, soar throat, fever, chills, you name it! Good news is my two kids have pretty well recovered from their bugs so now we just need mommy to get healthy. Hoping a few more long sleeps and low key days will get me around the bend.
But you didn't come her to hear me moan and complain about being sick - though I thank you for listening ;) This week's Verve sketch was perfect for a masculine, 50th birthday card I needed. Kept the papers quite subdued so the 50 would really pop - think I accomplished that LOL! Embossed a weathered brick background and added some distressed stripes to the numbers to emphasize the "aged" concept. Sure it won't be an issue as I just know the "you're already there old timer" comment will undoubtedly come up. Gotta love good friends :)
