Hello! Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Columbus Day to my friends in the USA. And I hope that my Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!
I was not feeling well this weekend. Without going into the gory details, lets just say I had a stomach bug. I don't know what the deal was, but I woke up Saturday morning feeling ill and didn't feel better until last evening. The time in between was spent in bed. Being ill like this is a clear reminder of how I felt during all 9 months of 2 pregnancies. And that I don't ever want to be pregnant again!! There are still some smells or foods that made me sick when I was pregnant that I still have a hard time dealing with to this day. When we adopted, I didn't feel sick at all and I got to go on an exciting trip to Vietnam for 3 weeks! Lets do a quick summary: Pregnancy= very sick. Adoption=exciting trip. Well it's all a moot point now, as my husband has not so subtly informed me that 3 kids are enough. :) LOL! Right now, when all three kids are happy and sweet, it seems like a debatable subject in my mind. Tomorrow, heck, in an hour, when they are whining and arguing and there is a dirty diaper to be changed I will wonder why we ever had any! LOL!!!
Friday I received the adorable stamps from the A Little Yummy For Your Tummy collection from Magnolia-licious!! I couldn't wait any longer to get to making a card with some. Diana had a special request that we make one with the colors of black/white/red to display in her new kitchen! She hardly asks anything of her DT, so I was happy to do so. This collection has a real vintage/retro feel to me, so I wanted my card to reflect that. With all the polka dots I didn't want to get to fussy with too many embellies...or we might have ended up cross eyed! So I just added a lollipop flower with a button. I also think these flowers feel retro-ish. The card layout was provided by this week's Friday Sketchers.
I hope that Diana likes this.
Have a Delightful Monday!
