Forever and always...

Hi guys, sorry about my absence yesterday. I got the flu and it has been kicking my behind all weekend. I've been going to bed early and sleeping in late and the rest of the time I can't get motivated to do much but veg on the couch. :(

Not much has been getting done in the creativity department but, I've had this card made for the Double Take Tuesday challenge over at The Greeting Farm and I didn't want to miss the deadline. It's a color combo challenge to use pink, blue, and white and last week I got this fun Valentine range of paper goodies from Elle's Studio that just happened to be that exact combo. This was my first time using any of their products and I have to say that I really fell in love with it. The chalkboard looking pieces are my favorite which in turn inspired me to ink up Cheeky Geeky and make a sassy, kind of school looking, Valentine with her. Once I got rolling in that direction I also inked up those cute love potion beakers so that Geeky would look like a love struck science teacher. ;)

Alrighty, I'm not sure how much longer this flu is going to keep me down but I'm hoping that I'm on the tail end of it all. Guess I'll see ya when I see ya. :)

Oh Amy, she is so pretty. I absolutely love those papers and the colors that you have colored her with. What a very very sweet card! I just love how your sentiment looks like it is written on a chalk board. Your card really has made my very long day a good one. Hope you are getting all this sunshine. It really helps me be a happy girl too. :O) I didn't watch Downton Abbey yesterday as Jerry wanted to watch the Grammys and now I wish I had as I stopped watching the Grammys about 30 minutes into it. lol... Hugs, Lisa

I forgot to tell you that I hope you are feeling better. That flu or cold or whatever you call it just really knocks the socks off of you. I swear when I got hit I pretty much spent two whole days in bed. :O(
Hugs, Lisa
