The joys of summer....

Happy Friday!! This is going to be a quick post, as I am battling quite a headache right now. I get a lot of headaches....for many different reasons....& it's hard to know what med to take for which headache. I took aspirin this morning, but it's not helping. And I don't want to mix meds, so I'll have to just suck it up for the rest of the day & try something else tomorrow!!



For today's card I used Swinging Shannon from High Hopes' new release. I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, paper pieced her shirt (after very much disliking my coloring of it), cut her out & hung her from the Branch. I added a Pam Bassett ribbon blossom (which could have been better but I didn't have it in me to futz too much with it) & 3 pearls down the side. The papers are SU's Pink Pirouette (my first time using this!), Basic Black & Basic Grey Eva. I didn't do the inside yet....I will do that when I'm feeling better....but here's a close up of Shannon....isn't she sweet??



Well I'm off to lie down before the kiddos get home....sure seems like I'm feeling yucky a lot lately....I think I need a good dose of summer myself!!!

Have a great weekend!!
