Painted Blooms

I'm writing this on Sunday - before the Super Bowl - so can't comment on the winner.  Just hoping for Seattle to pull out a win!

I have not felt good all weekend.  Hoping it is nothing but maybe a cold.  I started out on Friday just feeling achy with a bit of a cough.  But after taking an Aleve and laying on the couch for a couple of hours, I was ok.  The same thing on Saturday and Sunday.  My cough is in my chest and I can hear some rumblings in my chest but no fever or other symptoms.  I was wondering if I could have pneumonia but Ashley doesn't think so.  I'm going to wait it out.  If I still feel bad on Monday, I'll be calling the doctor to get checked out.  I'm scheduled to get a massage on Monday afternoon - so hopefully, I'll be ok for that!

I  made a bunch of cards this week - in the afternoon when I was feeling better!  I also worked a lot of my New Zealand scrapbook.  I only have one more city to scrap and after that, it will be just going back and adding embellishments here and there.  I think I'm up to about 38 pages though!!

This card was super easy to make!  I just cut a piece of the Painted Blooms Designer Paper and adhered it to the Blackberry Bliss card.  I just love this DSP and it's hard for me to cut into a piece!!  The sentiment is from a stamp set from Sale-a-Bration - Simply Wonderful.

Here are some other ideas using the Painted Blooms DSP:

 This next card uses the stamp set that coordinates with the DSP, Painted Petals (pg 19 Occasions).  The DSP in this card is from Sale-a-Bration - Irrestibly Yours.  I sponged it with Sahara Sand ink.  I used Rose Red for the card and flowers.  Again, the sentiment is from Simply Wonderful (pg 16, SAB).

Shoebox Cards

Brrr - it was cold here today.  Not that it bothered me since I didn't go outside all day!!  I felt a little industrious this morning and found a recipe for pork chops for the crock pot and got that going before making an apple pie.  I usually make a pie at Christmas but didn't do it this year so thought I'd surprise Sonny with one today.  Not to mention, I needed to use up some of the pie crusts I have in my freezer.  I cleaned out my fridge/freezer earlier this week and found 13 frozen pie crusts!  Every time I want to make a pie, I can't remember if I have any crusts at home so I buy more.  Don't think I will need one any time soon!

Thought I'd share a few more shoebox cards with you.

Painted Petals (pg 19 - Occasions)

Painted Petals with Work of Art.  The strip of DSP at the back is from the Sale-a-bration catalog - Irresistibly Yours (pg 15).  It s a white paper with glossy white patterns that you can sponge, spritz, brayer, etc. any color.

Sheltering Tree - again using the Irresistibly Yours DSP

Sheltering Tree - the grass is made with Work of Art

Your Perfect Day (pg 44 - Occasions catalog)
