Our Craft Lounge - Running Sick

Hey Everyone!! Thank you for sharing the blog links with me! I can't wait to go through them and read the blogs that you shared. Do you know. . .there's three types of blogs I like to visit. . .I mean, I like to visit all of your blogs but I have ones that really draw me into their world:

  • "blog friends" - because it's a great way to keep in touch and find out what they've been up to
  • "art/craft blogs (stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking)" - blogs that primarily focus on their beautiful cardmaking, scrapbooking or art work but rarely discuss much about anything else. . .I just love being inspired by their work.
  • "art/craft/personal blogs" - blogs that not only focus on their art but chit-chat about whatever is on their mind, their family, their life, trials and tribulation, frustrations, humor, sarcasm, joy and happiness, inspirations, sharing, etc.

I like the art/craft/personal blogs, especially the ones that don't necessarily take their art too seriously but they have a sense of humor about their work, their life or whatever else. There's a few that I can't help but just laugh out loud when I read their blogs or I read them and I can relate to what they're writing about. These blogs make me feel like I'm sitting down drinking coffee with them and chit-chatting about our craft, our kids, our life, our frustrations, whatever. You know. . .like gal pals! LOL!

Anyway. . .here's a card I made this morning. I have a few more cards that I made but I'll post them later.

Okay. . .this is a card that I would give to myself! LOL! I have major allergies but surprisingly, it's been really good for the past few weeks. There's days when all I seem to be doing is sneezing. . .it drives me MAAAAD!! It makes me feel sleepy and quite miserable and it's hard to craft when my nose is constantly running. Besides, would you want to receive a card with snot on it? LOL! Just kidding!

This image is from Our Craft Lounge - Running Sick The images from this set are so funny and cute . . .I love them. Click on the banner below to visit the store:


I colored the image with my Copics! Getting sick of Copics? Well, I like using them so you need to bear with me. I cut out the image and remounted it with foam tape. I added the dots using my Sakura gel pen. I think have every type of Sakura gel pens available. . .I just love them.

Nothing much else to the card that you can't figure out by just looking at it.

Anyway, don't forget to participate in my Blog's 2nd Anniversary Blog Candy! Click Here for the details!! The blog candy ends on Wednesday, December 10th!

That's too cute. I hear you. I have the worst allergies too. There was one time I was sneezing non stop and I was scrapbooking this layout and sure enough I was standing up while working on it and my nose drips onto the paper and ruins it. There goes that LO. lol.

Hello Maria! I agree with you what you wrote about the blogs. For me blogging is not only about the cards. It is my second life. When I write posts I put all myself in it. And sometimes I am feeling out of the energy... Remember you also described that you had the same feeling... But anyway just wanted to tell you that I love reading your blog. I have a feeling sometime that I know you for years but we didn't even met each other!
Now to the card - Love it!!! When I first moved to USA we lived in VA, and allergies are very common there too. So people will talk about running nose, since I didn't know English very well, that is how I was imagining it!!! One day I asked my husband how nose can run? We had a good laugh about this! Great card Maria!!!
