Valentines Card

Hi Everybody! I made this card last night. Just another Valentines card but I think it can be for any occasion.

Can you believe it but I just got over my bronchitis and a few days ago I started to have really bad stomach symptoms. I started to experience stomach ache, nausea/vomiting, etc. and I believe they're due to eating BAD chicken from Wings & Things. The morning after I ate the chicken, I started to feel really sick. My kids also had symptoms but their symptoms weren't as bad as mine. I haven't been able to eat for 2 days without feeling sick. Today, I finally was able to keep my breakfast down.

It's a little depressing. I was just starting to feel good after 2 weeks of being sick. Sorry for whining but I haven't been able to sit down and craft like I normally do. I have a few obligations and I feel like I'm behind again.



Anyway. . .this card was basically created with straight stamping. I did cut the heart image out and mounted them using foam tape. I used a lace ribbon because I thought it goes well with the heart design. It gives it a very feminine appearance, don't you think?

I used SU Always Stamp Set and inked it with Baroque Burgundy. I stamped the background on the Baroque Burgundy panel, with Vanilla Craft Ink. Other accessories used: lace ribbon (unknown), SU Key Tag punch.

Blogger is not allowing me to "spell check" so if you see typos and misspellings are due to my not being able to spell check my posts. . .:)
