Cold Virus 2 Me 0

Not to complain...but I wasn't planning on spending my holiday weekend in bed for 2 days like a freekin' mucous factory! Actually I am blessed because there are so many worse things in this world than a cold. But I will admit to having my moments of 'whiny'. But now from 'whiny' I can go to winey in my Bubble! We all know that wine has medicinal qualities - right? Actually today was my first day with coffee! Three days without caffeine. Hmmmmm...maybe it wasn't a cold at all...maybe it was caffeine withdrawals.

So to ease my way back into finding my Bubble mojo... I worked on finishing the insides of about 10 cards and envelopes for about a dozen....I always leave those minor details so I can moooove on the next card. It's like quilting...make the 'top' and move on to the next quilt...but like quilting "its not a quilt until its a quilted" and a card isn't a card until it has an inside and an envelope....

And then to further 'ease' I opted to let the design paper do most of the work...yummy paper!!!

  1. Ohhhh Nancy, if the bubble was nearer the crafty cabin we could have a few plays with the Cricut till you were ready to go it alone! Must admit that mines not been used for a while but it's not too tricky, honest! I knew straight awatbthat the label wS stamping up, guess who's been drooling over the catalogue today lol! Loving today's card, the papers are just too gorgeous to cover up anyway, love how you've accessorised them! Keep taking the vitamin C, Julie x

  2. Gorgeous paper! Love the way you used it on here and that little fence is so cute. Fabulous card!
    Yikes on feeling bad like that! Hope you start feeling better soon.
