Halls Cough Drops are the devil

I wonder if cough drops contain caffeine? Because after a bag of them, I'm pretty awake - regardless of the fact that I feel like I'm on my deathbed. Also - the cough drops? Not helping so much. I digress...

Tabitha @ Roots & Wings has generously been tutoring me both via her blog and email on card making. She makes the most gorgeous cards - I wish I had the amount of talent in her pinkie finger in my whole being.


Here's my card-making debut:


Generally, there would be 4 cards in a matching set but I got really tired and lost all interest and creativity by the 4th card so I decided to do without.

Up close:







On the inside, each of them look like this:


I feel pretty good about how they came out. My supplies collection is new and very small so I'm slightly limited but I'm excited about expanding and creating more cards.

***The hurricane status remains the same - it's either going to hit the East Coast (where I live) or the West Coast of Florida sometime between Monday and Tuesday. We'll know more tomorrow, hopefully but in the meantime, I'm pretty prepared for the worst case scenario. Now if only I could get Danny to get with the program and put the shutters up on the windows and doors. (sigh)

I came over here to whine "Where are you? It's Thursday and you are one of my FAVORITES!!"

Then I read cough drops.

Sorry.

I hope that you are feeling Smurfy soon! I need to just visit during the week and not wait for Thursdays.

LOVE your cards. Look out Hallmark, there's a new kid in town!

Those cards are great! I used to do all of that - and then I sold all my stuff on Ebay this spring. I'd been doing it for over 10 years and think I was just tired. Hope you're feeling better soon.
