Sorry about the interruption

It's been one week with the new roomies and we are still getting settled. I didn't have much time to create this week. However, today I was determined to sit down and make something! I managed to get a few cards completed and then discovered my DD is ill. :-( Never a good thing to find out, but got her cleaned up and she is resting comfortably now. I always dislike it when kids are sick. They look so pathetic. I know when my DD is under the weather because she insists she is fine yet her body contradicts this with signs. When she tells me she is "fine", I know to grab the thermometer. Bless her heart. She does not fib (Autism characteristic) about anything but this. It scares the dickens out of her to think she will get a shot and although I assure her those days have passed, the memories linger. I have avoided the flu and Swine shots because of her medical history and I really hope this was the best choice.
Okay but you are not here to read this. So let me get to the card sharing!

This is based on CardPatterns #37 sketch and The Pink Elephant's #36 Fall challenge

Supplies: cardstock: Recollections; pattern paper and stickers: Pink Paislee; rub-on: Creative Imaginations; flower: KaiserCraft; rhinestones: Michael's; twine: Darice; ribbon, leaf and button from craft supply

For Get Sketchy's #1o sketch
Supplies: cardstock: Recollections; pattern paper: Cosmo Cricket and Reminisce; stamp: Let's Get Jazzy;ink: Brilliance; ribbon: Michael's; glitter glue: Stickles; tulle and bell from craft supply

I discovered a new stamp company recently that I really love! Shirley's 2 Girls has really cool images and designs. SNR sent me an email announcing a digital day they were having last weekend and I popped over to check them out. They were offering a coffee cup and muffin image which I immediately printed off and began creating with. I made the the first card for the SNR digiday event and the second one is for the Thursday sketch which I won this week! Yeah!! I paper pieced the cup and muffin using Pink Paislee's Amber Road pattern papers to add some depth to the images.

Supplies: cardstock: Recollections; pattern paper: Pink Paislee; tag: Art Warehouse; jewels: Kaiser Craft; glitter glue: Stickles; alphabet sticker: Pink Paislee; other: punches Marvy and Fiskar's

Thanks for stopping by! I gotta run before Simon starts screaming for me to come help with unpacking the kitchen boxes. :-) Happy Sunday!
