My little family (including myself) has been super sick this week. The kind of sickness that you don't think can get worse and then it does. So we've had multiple trips to the doctor for the boys and us and pretty much time has stood still while the world spins madly on. No one i showing signs of getting over it yet, so I think there's a long weekend in front of us. At this point we're just hoping none of us ends up hospitalized.
Unable to lay down because of the terrible coughing attacks, last night I sat down at my stamping desk to try my hand at this week's sketch. I wanted some bright and cheery colors, so embossed the small flowers from Surely Goodness onto watercolor paper, then wiped with distress inks and spritzed with water for an easy watercolor effect. They're cut with the coordinating Goodness Flowers Die Set. I cut the Classy Label from so saffron paper, then wiped with a bit of the excess water from one the flowers I didn't use. Next I stamped the it is well sentiment on the label. My black and saffron layers are embossed with a music embossing folder and I added a bit of wide striped ribbon, rhinestones and a white doily to finish things off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful, healthy weekend!
