Beautiful Wendy

I made this card the other day, but got started with the challenges and forgot to upload her. I'm so happy with how this card turned out! I think the colors are so soothing on the eyes, and the coloring came together so perfectly on Wendy! I got the layout off A Whiff of Joy blog. Great layout, isn't it? First time I've pulled out my felt flowers from SU since I purchased them several months ago! They match my TAC paper perfectly! The TAC paper is their Amberly Grace SWIC. I love the colors in this pack of papers!

Supplies: TAC SWIC, SU Felt flowers, Lyra Watercolor crayons, Bella stamp, TAC sentiment, Baja Blue SU cardstock, stickles, ribbon, nesties, versamagic ink pad, SU close to cocoa ink pad.

Than I've been thinking about this all morning. I saw this blog post at Tip Junkie, about your word for 2009. My year is starting out so nicely, so finding a word that matches how I want the year to continue is difficult! Have you all ever done this before? I've done where you find one word that describes you in one word. My word for that is "cautious". I over think just about every decision I ever make. I never take big leaps in life! I'm gonna keep thinking on a word for the year, and would love to hear what anyone else come up with for their word of the year.

Last wordy part of this post. Poor Trey is home from school today. I shouldn't say poor Trey, he's loving it! Been on the wii not fighting his sister for games! I took him to the DR on NYE, and was told it was viral, wait it out a week. Something told me that wasn't right, but can't argue with the dudes in white, ya know? So, days passed, he didn't get any better, and he kept running a high fever. His sister and cousin, who was visiting, didn't get sick, so seemed like it couldn't just be viral. On Friday night his fever got to 103.3, and I knew I couldn't wait a week to take him back. We headed back on Sat AM, and it was bronchitics. Got a strong antibotic and he's doing so much better! But the dr said he had to stay low for 3 days, and that meant today was chilling with momma! Anyhow, all that to tell you, I snapped this super sweet photo of him passed out in the chair. He'd been feeling bad for so long, and just knocked out at 7:30.

What a beautiful card! Love the colors and the sketch. That sentiment matches perfectly. Sorry to hear about Trey. Glad he is starting to feel better now.
