Note to self........FMS 23



I couldn't wait to work with Tui's sketch this week but I kept putting it off because I wasn't feeling well.   As the Freshly Made Sketches deadline approached my cold was in full swing - sneezing, coughing, runny nose - you know the feeling!  I finally sat down at my desk with a glass of orange juice and a box of tissues and hoped for the best. My cards are often in the mail by the time they are posted here because I usually make them with someone in mind.  This one however has not been mailed - I am afraid if I sent it to anyone it could be considered germ warfare..............

Love the yellow/black combo Linda and the detail at the bottom is the perfect touch to ground your card. Hope you are feeling better - maybe you should send the card to yourself!

It would be like a Trojan HOrse, then, if you mailed this, because it's so beautiful, someone would WANT to open it! HOpe you feel better, LInda.
