Hiya Friday

It's Friday, Friday, Friday!  That means it's time for Friends with Flair!  I used last week's Stamp of the Week "Thanks for Visiting" to create this card.  This house makes me smile :)  The sentiment is also from Unity's Hiya Gorgeous sentiment set.

It WAS Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday when I was inspired by a sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday, so I'm submitting it there as well.  Yes, it took me over two days to create a card.....I've had quite a week.

On Sunday night, the skin on the side of my stomach felt like I'd been burned.  After a couple days, a rash appeared - Shingles.   The bad news is:  This stuff HURTS and makes a person really tired.....  The good news is that I have a really swollen, red, angry 4" x 10" flourish of rash across my stomach.  The crafty side of me is impressed that I get Shingles in a flourish shape.  My dear hubby has told me that I shouldn't scrap it....but what does he know?!  Party pooper.

Anyway, here's the card that took me so long!


Craftily yours,

Karen (karey2005)
