Hit by a Semi

Ok....not literally. In reality, on Tuesday I got hit by the cold/flu bug that MADE me feel as if I had been hit by a semi truck. I started trying to overdose on Vitamin C and see just how much water a person can consume before floating away. Even took a two hour nap in the afternoon (which is usually a death sentence for sleeping that evening....NO PROBLEMS!). By Wed I just felt like I had been beaten up by bat welding thugs (a HUGE improvement!). Thursday, almost human. Today, I have a nice painful cough, but overall, I think I can pass for a human being again.

That all aside, I have a CAS (clean and simple and even better yet~~QUICK) little card to share. I made this for a customer/friend who I kept neglecting to send a package too. So, I included this stamp set in the package. I had only used it once (maybe) and it was in my pile to "get rid of".
I still had/have my stuff laying out from my workshop so I just used scraps to put this little card together. This is a little 4x4 card (I be honest, it is in the mail and in my medicated addled state, I forgot a lot of details on this little guy! YIKES!! scary that I'm in charge of getting kids to school in this state of mind!! For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of this stamp set either. It had four stamps this same style.....if anyone remembers the name, let me know and I will edit it in). *ETA: the stamp set is Wishing You the Best (thanks Amber!) The card base is SU's Kiwi Kiss with a light sponging of Old olive on the white and along the edge of the scallop. There is some paper piercing in the top corner that is hard to see. The scallop was made using SU's scallop circle punch and the center image was punched out using the 1 3/8" circle punch. The scallop and the center image are both on dimensionals. A little ribbon and it's done!! Wah~lah!!
I'm soooo glad it is the weekend (almost). I hope to finish cleaning up my workshop mess so that I can just mess up my space again with creating something new.....wink!
Have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by!

Oh you poor thing. Both DH & I have been sick - he worse than I (but that goes without saying - ha, ha). Warm tea & honey helps. (I sound like a Grandma, ya think?)

This is beautiful and she is a very lucky friend! I love the colors your chose for this and the clean & simple of it, too!

Great job! Hope you're up & around real soon!
