Taking Time to Smell the Flowers ...
FIRST ... the good news: I'm typing this from DH's hospital room where we are waiting for the IV drip of Potassium to finish up and then I can TAKE HIM HOME!!
The c-diff infection is not cleared yet but he can complete his medical treatment from home. We do have an appointment to see his Oncologist next week to follow up on his progress.
While I wait I'd like to share with you this creation I made to cover two challenges from yesterday.
Speaking of yesterday, I had to take care of a couple of appointments I had scheduled over in Pennsylvania and ended up driving back home through the WORST thunderstorm I have ever experienced. It was raining SO hard, people were driving 40 mph on the interstate because the visibility was terrible, and that was probably still too fast! When I got back to the hospital DH informed me that there were tornado warnings in the area I had just come from. My daughter texted me 10 minutes later and said they had 6" of water in their basement and their power was out. I'm happy to report everything is back to normal today!!!
Back to my card! The color combination here is for the Color Throwdown Challenge hosted this week by Danielle Kennedy (Wild Dragonfly Designs) . I have used Kiwi Kiss & Cameo Coral cardstock and also SU Pink Flamingo designer paper to satisfy the color requirements.
My layout is for the SCS Sketch Challenge #233. A simple layout that I'm sure I will use over and over again. The main image is one of the Magnolia images from the Flourishes Lilac stamp set which I have stamped & embossed using Old Olive then colored with Cameo Coral ink/blender pen. The backgound for this panel is Whisper White cs which I have stippled Tempting Turquoise & Black the outlined using a Creative Memories Round Tip Black Marker.
