A little challenge goodness to soothe my pounding head
Ok...so I have a monster cold. You know the one? The one where it feels like someone has pumped a concrete slurry into your head? You can't hear. You can't breathe. Your eyes are dry. Your head pounds. Your throat is raw. Your nose is dripping like a tap. Fun times all round. NOT!
Not to be out-done by this minor health setback...I got up this morning and decided to make a card. But do you reckon I could think my way past my box of tissues and Panadol? NO I COULD NOT. So I went and found a challenge to help me on my pox-ridden way.
Thank goodness for Just Add Ink! This week's challenge is an elegant little sketch challenge...one to set my ailing mind aflutter (well it would flutter if it weren't mired in slurry)...
NOW...while I'm not 100% impressed with my end product, in my current state I can hardly afford to be picky. I am lucky I managed to remain conscious the entire time (am I a drama queen or what?) any one would think I had a MAN-cold (on this subject...check out this You Tube vid...hysterical!).
Anyhoo...here 'tis (you'll see I've followed the sketch pretty much to the letter...my head really is in pretty bad shape...no independent thinking going on here at all):
List of Ingredients:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Brushed Gold and Lovely Lilac
Stamps: Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SU - retired)
Accessories: Chiyogami paper, Cherished Memories Rub-Ons (SU - retired), Wireworks Gold Wire (SU - retired), Carl Craft small butterfly punch, Black Satin ribbon (PTI), Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip, SNAIL adhesive and Dimensionals.
Now I think I might need to go rest a while. Hope no one else has a welcome-to-spring cold. It's pretty sucky methinks!
