My method of recovery

I'm pleased to report that I've pretty much made a full recovery from Bronchitis Fest 2008. I give some credit to Zithromax but the rest of credit goes to crafting. I've spent most of my weekend laying around the house, cooking and - my new favorite thing to do - making cards. Here are some pictures.

The Aloha stamp was a Michael's $1 find and the paper came from the $1 scrapbooking section of Joann's. I love this set because it's a little more masculine than any of the others.
This paper came from the $1 store. I was pretty excited when I found scrapbooking supplies there and was all set to make an awesome set but I feel like I lost my groove somewhere after the first card. (Which explains why there isn't a 4th.)
This is a very funky set and my first use of loose glitter on cards.
This paper came from the $1 scrapbooking section at Joann's. I love the color combinations.
This might be my favorite set so far. It's hard to see in the photos but there is a lot of glitter throughout the paper. The card in the far right hand side is for my grandfather who turned 76 years old today.
I promise to have a decent blog post this week and Sincerely 'Fro Thursdays will return, too!
