Let's Think Summer.....Shall we?

I now know why I've had a headache for the last two days......I have officially gotten a cold! So Cort and I are icky together! And of course the weather here in Chicago is finally turning into spring! Somehow that makes being sick even worse. A person should only be sick when it is cold and miserable outside, don't ya think? LOL!

So on to my card.....

I used this fun image from Crafty Secret's Creative Scraps. I truly adore these images. It makes creating a card so easy! I wanted to add a little something special to this card and decided on a Quickutz tree and fishing pole I've had forever! I tied very teeny string to the fishing pole and a quilled fish I made. The sentiment was created using my new JustRite Times New Roman stamps. I love that I can personalize a card anyway I want!!!




Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Off to drag myself to bed........and hope that tomorrow my cold is gone. (wishful thinking I think!)

Way too cool!

A cup of hot tea, sitting in the window (sunshine = Vit. D), a smile on your facing thinking of your next card creation, the wonderful comments you get (and really look forward to) and the fact that we'd miss you if you got really sick! Yep. You should be better already!
