I'm baaaaaaaaccccckkkkk......

Wow! What a week! I have been so sick it is almost unimaginable. I finally went to a Naturopath (after my brother scolding me!!!) and I am so glad I did! I guess my Lymphatic Drainage System isn't working so I have been collecting the "bad" kind of bacteria in my stomach for a long time (many many years!). So, now it is just so bad that my body can't fight it off. I'm on meds and the doctor promised me I would start to feel better soon! Whew!

So, I'm sorry for the hiatus ladies! But I haven't even wanted to get out of bed!!!!

The first card after being back is a quicky I just did. I went to visit my parents for Easter and my sister-in-law and I LOVE to get together and stamp! We had a few hours one day so I used all her stamps and she used all mine! (which is only about 10 - let's face it!) It was great! She has the best stamps - and tonnes too!!! I dream of being as good as her one day!!! :) I could go on forever about her talent!!!

Anyways...the card. I started with a scrap (yes still doing the scraps thing!) that is some sparkly flower paper. I have no idea where I got it, but I love it, and I have the same one in all pinks too.

The striped paper on the left is a scrap too from a Dollarama pack and I used two pieces of ribbon both the same pattern, one purple and one green. The stamp is my sister-in-law's and it was from a clear set she got at Michael's. I stamped it with jet black ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram powder. What else would I use - really?!? I colored it in using my Crayola's and put a clear jewel on the top of the cupcake! The sentiment "Hi Cupcake!" is from the same clear stamp set and it is stamped and embossed the same way. I mounted everything on purple paper from my DCWV Jewel Texture Stack and used my sissors to cut the frilled edges. After making knots with the ribbon and putting them on with a pop dot each, I used 3 tiny jewes in the bottom left corner to finish it off! Not bad for my first day back after a long week of sickness! YAY!!!

Hope you guys are all well. Tomorrow I'm gonna do some serious blog hoping - it's been forever! Can't wait!

Have a great Saturday!!!
