So sick and tired of...

...being so sick and tired. I have been out of commission for most of two weeks. Between a sick kid and then me getting it, I haven't been able to craft in what amounts to months in my eyes! :) When you are used to doing at least a little something everyday and you haven't been able to craft in almost two weeks, it feels like a VERY long time. But I'm back and on my way to healthy again. I still have a little ways to go but it's a little better everyday.

While I was out,  I missed two of my GD spot on the #99 "CAS" challenge on the FairyTale Challenge blog and the #204 "Special Card" Challenge Hanna and Friends Challenge blog. Here is a card I created for both.

This is for my in-laws' wedding anniversary this week.

I used Lil Inker Designs' set called 'It's today, right?'. I stamped it in Versafine Black Onyx ink and then forgot about that and used my Copics to color in the dress and flower. The ink bled a little bit so I won't be forgetting that again. :) The inside sentiment is from the same set with the same ink. I do love the crispness that Versafine provides for images like this. Makes them look professional in my opinion.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
