Thank God for Science!

After three doses of antibiotics, five hours of rolling sweats, three-quarters of a box of tissue, and a decent night's sleep, I am feeling fairly decent today. I'm hoping not to have any antibiotic side effects this holiday weekend to add to my misery, but I'll take them rather than still be feeling crappy two weeks from now... (New followers, I promise I'm not always sick.)

I was able to finish a card this morning. I started it DAYS ago and kept changing paper and stamps and embossing powder and so on... One of my mother's friends asked me to make 9 graduation cards, and as yesterday was the last day of school, I think I need to get on it! This card is for her daughter; I hope it passes for "special"...

It's an easel card with The Greeting Farm's Graduation Anya, some paper from Recollections, ribbon from Colleen, letter dies from Papertrey Ink, Hampton Art's graduation stamps, numbers from Lawn Fawn (little too much space on that 2nd 2), a little Stickles, a few pearls, and a sketch from The Cutie Pie Challenge.

I'm hoping to get some kind of rapid-fire assembly line cranking for the other cards that I need to make. I really just want to go lay back down though.

Challenges: The Cutie Pie Challenge (above), Celebrate the Occasion - Graduation
