Lot of Sleep and Vitamin C......PP282





After a week like this one lots of Vitamin C is just what we have all needed!  My daughter has bronchitis, my poor sweet Emma has pneumonia, my son has the flu, the big guy has a an upper respiratory infection with severe bronchial spasms and I have the flu with acute bronchitis! Say what?!?!? Enough already! I have never had bronchitis in my life - and I hope I never get it again!  There is progress but wow it has been a tough week!  You know you are sick when you can't even stamp!




Emma has the right idea..............lots of sleep!


On the plus side winter has finally arrived in upstate NY and temps well below zero should kill off all these pesky germs. And we should see some snow :) It is also very cozy in front of my fireplace...........



I love the delicious colors Laurie chose for our challenge this week at the Paper Players! They were perfect with the fruit from Apple of My Eye! Come play along!




I used this wonderful sketch from The Challenge for my layout.

This is such a cool card! I love the layers of slices of lemons and oranges. Stamping the Pool Party seeds outside of the fruits is a nice touch! I'm sorry to hear your family is sick, and this is a perfect card for cure.

How perfect is this card?! Love the pop of POol Party with the fruit medley--it's like a perfect Lily Pulitzer dress. Here's hoping rest and vitamins have done their work for you and your sweet family! Sounds like you need some FL sunshine!

Linda I just love this layout! I might have to CASE this one too as I think the reference to Vitamin C will make a great "Get Well" card. So cute.
