Thinking of You


Hello!  When I was at my parent's house last weekend, my mom let me stamp a couple of her Belles 'n Whistles images, and I was itching to color one up:)  I decided to make a card for this week's Belles 'n Whistles Challenge which is an open theme.  I used this adorable image called Tea Time, and paired her with some fun Cosmo Cricket Togetherness dp.  The ribbon is some Yellow Stripe Grosgrain from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the layout is from this week's Sketch Saturday sketch. 

Well, it's only the first week of school, and illness has already struck!  My oldest was sent home today with vomiting and diarrhea, and my daughter is completely congested and can't breathe!  That's definitely the downside of school starting again.  We stay so healthy all summer!  Oh well.  Hope you have a wonderful, HEALTHY weekend:)
