Before It Gets Worse...

...And it will. As I finished editing the photographs of the cards I'm about to show you, I realized I'm getting a (frickin') migraine. So I won't chatter, I'll get to the cards and get ready to take some meds. I'll be fine....

My first card will make it into the Time Out Challenge with less than 24 hours to go. My second card heads over to the Little Tangles challenge.

Grab Our Badge!


Here are my cards:


Scraps, enamel triangle dots, Artplorations stencil, Studio G ink, ME birthday stamp.


Michael's white base, yellow CS, unknown designer papers, Anita's white CS, SC flag die, TT sentiment, Kelly Purkey red sequins, Versafine ink, N&T box die (so in love with that!). Gotta go. Hitting the meds now, but you all go and have some happy dances on my behalf!

Total sweetness with these two cards! Love the fun, bright colors that conjure up images of spring flowers! Nice bits of triangle bling on the first card! Sweet polkie dots and cutie-patootie DP.

I'm sorry you are falling prey to another migraine, Bevie, and I pray it's not a cluster. On the other hand, I'm happy that you've had a few days of being crafty again and inspiring all of us with your awesome cards! These are two more delightful designs which I love! And I love you, too! Take care, my sweet friend!! Hugs, Darnell

I'm late in commenting so I'm hoping that YKW is nowhere in sight, Bev. You have made a couple of cute cards here but that box is totally terrific. I may have to check into that die.

Anita in France said...

Oh sweetie, hope the meds worked a treat and that you were able to fight off that horrid YKW! What a fabulous duo ... those cute dancing triangles behind the stencilled 'happy' are so celebratory ... love them! That box is brilliant ... so clever to have the banner popping up out of it ... those 'unknown' designer papers are perfect together! So delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, Bev ... especially when you're so in need of meds! Miss you heaps, my friend! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Both of your cards are fabulous Bev. I'm sorry that the migraines are hitting you again. I truly know the suffering that comes with them. So glad that I don't suffer from them anymore, or rarely do. Take care and my prayers are with you. Hugs, Brenda
