CARDS & "BOO"

I feel like a yoyo with my health lately. One day good, next day could be crappity crap. I am usually very healthy and rarely get sick. This past year been very frustrating for me to be sick a lot. I usually try not to talk about being sick a lot on my blog. But this past couple week, it's been quite a struggle for me as I just don't feel quite 100% well. Every time I think ooh... I am much better, bam... it happen again. I have doctor appointment today and will get some test done. Hopefully they can tell me something!!

Anyway, last night, the super sweet Trinh, sent me an email that totally made my day better. Thank  you, Trinh! She emailed me to congratulate me for having this card on the first page of CARDS blog. And, I didn't even know. I thought the post usually go on Friday, so totally wasn't expecting it. This is the 2nd time my card get picked by CARDS. Love happy news.

Challenge: CPS - sketch
Crafty Calendar - blue and optional to use flowers
Scrappy Frog - flower power

And, I did managed to complete this card for my DT work for Mami Doodles challenge. This time the theme is to make "Boy card with the color red". When I saw this Li'l Devil, I thought he's so cute! I cut out the image & popped it on yellow circle carstock, so it looks like he walks during the full moon. Cut the bats & sentiment using Silhouette. For the background I used my oldie stars stamp. Check out Mami Doodle blog for challenge, prize detail, & inspirations from the other DT member.

Challenges: Stampin Royalty - stitching
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - faux or real stitching

And, tomorrow, my brother will be here!! We're planning a road trip to New Orleans for a couple days and I am simply looking forward for some down time & enjoying my brother's company. I am so glad he's coming, as you remember I was feeling homesick a couple weeks ago. His visit is much needed for me. Will posted about our trip sometime next week after we come back.

Have a great Friday and join us on this fun Mami Doodles challenge! Also, quick reminder, you have till midnight tonight to enter Wee Memories "Fall Into Autumn" challenge. Thanks for stopping by peeps. Hugs, Vera.
