Mosquitoes suck - literally and figuratively!

Oh my goodness! I have been getting some of the worst mosquito bites ever this summer! I have two that I got two days ago. When I was bit, my foot was itching and on fire. I put some bentonite clay on the bites, and they were calm until yesterday afternoon. I put alcohol, Allegra ointment, benzocaine, and cortisone cream on them at different times with little to no relief. All night  they itched and kept me awake. Well, I woke up this morning and my two tiny bites are huge and swollen. I put some more bentonite clay on them, and that helped white it was on and about 30 minutes after. Right am going crazy making myself not touch them. I am not a mosquito fan, but they sure love me!

Anyway, I'm a little better this week and am blogging on Wednesday like I'm.supposed to. Here's my card for the Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz. (I'm blogging on the blogger app on my phone. I have no clue where it's going to put my photo...)


  1. The mosquitoes are awful this year with all the rain! Hope you've gotten relief from your bites by now! Fab card, Trina! Love the backing papers and the star-framed image! Great coloring!

  2. Beautiful card, Trina!! My daughter has been having some funky reactions to mosquito bites this year, too!! Your reaction sounds just like hers! SHe never used to react like that. I think the bugs are changing!

  3. Super cute card Trina! I love your coloring skills. Wonderful...

    Hate mosquitoes ... nasty critters. A friends told me that crushed aspirin mixed with a bit of water to make a paste will take the sting out of insect bites. I don't know for sure, but might be worth checking into!


  4. Wow Trina, your coloring is awesome!! Like always :-D
    Glad your feeling better, although mosquito bites are very itchy!!!

  5. Trina, Sorry to hear the mosquitoes are being so mean to you....that's the price you pay for being just too darned sweet, I suppose.
    I followed you here from Outlawz (love that place!) and I just became one of your newest followers. If you get a chance, I'd really appreciate a visit to my very first blog:


    PS: Almost forgot to tell you how much I love your card! The coloring is fantastic. And all of those stars are just look adorable.

  6. Very cute card Trina! The mosquitoes are just disgusting this year. There is so much dampness that they are everywhere. Hope you're feeling less itchy.

  7. Great card x

    I have heard through the grapevine, that if you put Orajel or any other dental gel it will stop itching full stop. Do let me know if it works.

    hugs sally x

  8. Love this card. He looks like he'll just step right off of the paper! TFS, Renee

  9. Oooh, so glad we don't have tons of mosquitoes here in AZ! I can't stand the little monsters. (We called them the state bird when we lived in Minnesota, though I remember them being pretty fierce in Georgia, too!) Hope you get some relief soon!
    What a darling card--I so love that image & your coloring! Great design, love the DP, and all the little stars are perfect for embellies! :^)
    Have a great un-itchy weekend!
    Hugs, Penny

  10. So sorry about the mosquito bites. That really BITES! No pun intended LOL! Really cute card and image and it looks like the blogger app put the picture in the right place.

  11. Trina, sorry you're fighting mosquitos and losing the battle! Love your is too darn cute.

  12. What an adorable card!! It's so cuteeeeeee!!! You are so very talented and awesome. So sorry about all those nasty mosquitos bites. Lots of mint green alcohol to soothe them. Your story about your boyfriend really touched my heart! So glad that you got to see the books. How awesome. Thanks for sharing and encouraging me.

Thanks for your time & the love! ;D
