Need a hug? and birthday wishes

Hey all! It's Sunday and I am taking it easy today. DD and I went to the pool yesterday but a storm made our time there short. :-( We didn't go today because DD woke up with hives from the sunscreen I used. Her cheeks are flushed and hot, her chest is covered with hives, and her arms have huge red patches. I can't believe I did not check it prior for potential reactions. I feel like the worse Mom ever. It's so hard to see her suffering. I have given her Benadryl and she is resting now. I can tell you that we will not be using Banana Boat Sport SPF 85 any longer. I will stick with the Coopertone.
On a positive note, it's my dad's birthday. Happy Birthday Dad! I am going to try and go see him tonight if J feels better. We will celebrate as a family next weekend. I called to speak with him earlier and my Mom said he was out working in the yard. Yucky yard work on your birthday? He's more disciplined than me. Most be the military side.
So my DD definitely needs some hugs and TLC. I made this card last night using JUG's "let's go digital" challenge.

I printed these pattern papers from My Time Made Easy on white cardstock and then printed Water Waverly Wiggles digital images/sentiments on a piece of turquoise cardstock. I made the flower using a chipboard outline, distressing with ink, and then curling the edges. An orange button adores the center. I cut a strip of the pattern paper and folded it to make a decorative border along the bottom then I attached a scrap piece of the We R Memory Keeper's paper. Next I cut the sentiment in a pennant shape, adhered to scrap piece and added a few stitches.

Okay off to check on DD. Have a great day!

Poor thing. I think it always looks worse than it feels. My son is alergic to MSG and he broke out in hives so bad he had welts. But it didn't hurt. They told me had he not been on allergy meds he would have gone into anaphylactic shock.
The card is fab with those digi papers. :)


I love those flowers, lovely card!

Great card. I loved that digital paper too but just could not get it to work with Lauren's free stamp. You used it beautifully and your flower is awesome. Don't beat yourself up over the sunscreen mishap! Every mother knows these things happen. Who would have thought. Hope she is feeling better.

You know, my son has been having more problems with his eczema this summer, and maybe it's b/c I have been using the banana boat sunscreen...every little thing makes it flare up...I guess I'll try a different one!! I can't believe i didn't think of this sooner! Love that card it is so pretty:):) I'm glad I found your blog thru for the luv of art!! Have a great day:) Jess

Also, I'm so glad your daughter is doing better. That happened to one of my girls one year. It looked scary but thankfully went away fast.
