He loves me...

Well it's been a long week!! I've been sick for most of it.....sometime Monday I developed the worst headache, & knowing we were planning on going to the State Fair on Tuesday I took lots of aspirin & went to bed as early as possible. I still had it Tuesday, along with some nausea that was forming. We still went, & had a good time for the most part. The boys had a blast & that's really all that matters. They rode all the rides, ate tons of food (including the new-this-year chocolate covered bacon on a stick) & saw all the animals. We definitely saved money this year as I barely ate anything...so unlike me, lol. We were there a total of 10 hours.....a very long day for me indeed!! I spent the day yesterday recuperating, & today I am finally starting to feel better. Which is a good thing, because Michael's birthday party is tomorrow night & I've been running around like a crazy person today trying to get everything ready.

But I did take time out to work on a card. I'm determined to use all the summer Magnolias that Susan sent me before the snow falls, lol!!




I don't know, I feel like all my cards look alike lately, lol. This Tilda is colored with Prismas & gamsol, cut out & popped onto the Nestie. The burgundy paper is Bazzill Swiss Dots (from the 8x8 pack I bought at Michael's), the green paper is Bazzill Guacamole, & the dp is K&Co Madeline. The flowers are punched from the same papers, as are the butterflies (punched twice with the MS punch....once using the Bazzill Dots & once using the K&Co....glued them together & added 3 rhinestones).




I was trying to show the layers of the butterfly, but this picture looks really washed out to me. Sorry! It's a weird time of day...the worst for trying to get good pics.

That's it from me for a few days.....tomorrow will be finishing up preparations for the party....Saturday will be recuperating, lol.....& Sunday I hope to see my grandma. She just got home from yet another hospital stay & we all really want to visit with her.

Have a great weekend!!!!

Hi Michelle! Gorgeous card - so rich and vibrant. Reminds me of velvet. Fantastic stitching - it's so neat! Love how you wove the ribbon thru too - what an awesome idea :-)
Your cards don't all look the same to me. Each and every one has it's own unique style and I NEVER get tired of looking at them.
Hope you will soon feel 100% in time for Michael's party = hope it all goes well.
