Oh Yay!

Yippee Ki Yi Yay. It's been a long week with migraines. I try really hard not to let them get in my way of everyday things, or important things like crafting, but sometimes the basta**s really slam hard. *Sigh* ... It's been one of those weeks. I snuck into my craft room in between headaches, and made the ping that was ponging all around my brain; yes, even with a migraine, my brain still crafts. Glad it went together so fast. Cuz round fifty-'leven is coming on fast and strong. So I am getting right to it...


Playing here.


Michaels white cardstock. Silhouette cut file for the chili pepper, and I use ME red ink and PTI green and sponged it on. Added a smidgen of black for some shading. Market Street chicken wire stamp with more PTI green ink. a few scattered enamel dots just for fun. Oh, and the die is from LF. And I'm off to take MORE meds...I'll be fine...eventually. Happy dances everyone.

You poor thing - I have had 1 migraine in my life and that was enough! I can not imagine having to deal with that pain on a constant basis! Your card is quite fun with the cute hot pepper~ very appropriate :)

Bev, I'm so sorry that you suffered from several migraines this week! Can't believe you found time and energy to craft and make such a fantastic card!
I wish that they leave you alone soon and for good!

Awww, Bev, I feel so bad that you had a worse than normal week with your migranes! Here's hoping there's relief in sight : ) Love your card ... that chicken wire in the background is so fun paired with the chili pepper!

Oh I wish those darn migraines would stay away for good. Love that you were able to get a little creative relief. Love the fun background Bev.

Luscious and hot, Bev ... gorgeous sponged chili pepper ... I thought you'd GA'd it, it appears to shine so beautifully! Hope the basta**d YKW has been kicked in to touch ... thinking of you, my lovely friend! Bisous, Bisous, Anita :)

Perfect image for this challenge, Bev! Hope you feel better soon :(

WOW! The pepper looks so 'real & touchable'! Amazing job shading with the green & black! So nice to see that the "bastages" (my sister's version of that OTHER word) didn't crimp your craft!

Yep - winner, winner; spicy chicken dinner!

Sorry about your migraines, Bev. I have them too from time to time, and that sucks! But I'm glad you took some time to play along with us at CASology. Your card is super fun, and I was impressed by how you inked your chili pepper. Great job!!!! May

This is too fun! Sorry to hear about your migraines. Hope you're feeling back to your old self soon.

Jen W. said...

Oh, Bev, so sorry to hear you've been having such a nightmare with your migraines. :( I hope they're subsiding and cutting you some slack - it sounds like you've been suffering more than long enough!
I'm glad you managed to get this brilliant card made. That chili pepper is gorgeous - perfect shading! - and I love the hint of chicken wire in the background. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Hey Bev! I hope you feel better soon. Your card is so cute. I love your tag and the background is so subtle. Nicely done. Thanks for playing along with us this week at CASology.

That chili pepper is glistening hot, Bevie! This is so a winner in my book! You amaze me, period, but the way you can pull off something this creative with your brain squeezing itself through a pin hole and back out the other side, is BEYOND me awe-mazing!! I hope you are over this cluster by now! Gentle hugs, Darnell

Bobby said...

Well, you do have a winner here, Bev. I didn't get a chance to comment before but saw this in the HM gallery at CASology. If a chili pepper doesn't say hot, I don't know what does. Sorry you were under the influence but it didn't stop the creativity.

Brenda said...

Oh Bev, I'm so sorry you have had to deal with migraine headaches. They certainly are not fun, I've suffered with them for years too. I don't get them anymore thank God, it seems mine were related to my reproductive organs and now that they are gone so are my migraines. But glad to see that your mind was still able to craft! I love, love your card, it put a huge smile on my face just because! Hugs, Brenda

JD/ Jill said...

This card is right on for this challenge! Great job! Hope you are feeling much better. Believe me, I know how bad migraines can be...

Geri said...

Yep...I called it! Congrats on the HM at CASology! So well deserved!

And nice to hear that you kicked those nasty YKW's to the curb and are now feeling better!

maria f. said...

This is so fabulous, Bev! Congrats on your shout out. Hope you're feeling better.

Deepti said...

This is fabulous! I love the chicken wire in the BG :) so cool

Kim Heggins said...

LOVE this card!!! And I love chili peppers too and this looks mighty "hot" my sweet friend. Your background is just so perfect, just perfect. Congrats on your HM at CASology too!

cm said...

So sorry to hear the bast***s made a reappearance, but you sure didn't let them get the best of you! The first time I saw your card, I did think your chili pepper was real (I know...who'd put a real pepper on a card? I'm a ninny), but that's how realistic it looks! *Hot* *Hot* *Hot*! Love it, my friend!
