Sweet Sunday Sketch #153 and Color Throwdown #182

Oh blog, how I missed you! About two weeks ago, Andy came home from work with a cold. So naturally, I go into sanitizing mode: washing hands practically every couple of minutes; wiping down all surfaces with Clorox wipes; opening windows to get fresh air when the weather permitted. Andy was fine after a few days, and I thought I was in the clear. WRONG! The flu slammed me on. my. ass! That was last week Tuesday. I'm still somewhat congested, but thankfully feeling close to my normal self again. (or as close to normal as I can be. If you know my family, you'll understand! ☺) I haven't made ANY cards/layouts in all that time. I was going into withdrawal! So today, I was ecstatic to go play with paper, ink, and glue up in my craft room. Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Here is a card that I made for SSSC153 and for CTD182:



Sorry for the bad light. I just took these shots a bit ago and it's dark outside. And the sketch and color challenge:



All the patterned paper is from the On The Boardwalk collection by Graphic 45. The pre made card base is from Bazzill and the rest of the card stock is from DCWV. The ribbon is from my stash. Those stamps on the inside? They are from Unity Stamps March KOTM which I just received in the mail today! Kismet!

I hope the remainder of this flu goes away soon. I'm missing my wine! 10 days and counting without my vino! Oh the humanity!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great evening!

So, so sorry to hear you've had the flu! Last time I had the flu, I thought I was NEVER going to recover....so horrible. But you really made me smile about the vino comment. Hope you get back to your regular old self soon.
Your card is adorable! Love the colors and all the layers and the fabulous focal image. :)
