Gettin' Back on the Horse. . .

Well, it never fails. Just when I get into a good rhythm of making cards and doing daily posts, something happens. In this case, it was the stomach flu, provided by my mom.

On the flight back from her worldly adventures, she started feeling ill and ended up throwing up the last two hours of the flight. . . and in the airporter bus. . .and in my car on the way home. I couldn't IMAGINE how awful that must've been, away from home and a familiar bed and surrounded by strangers.

But within two days, I was sick too. After that, it was a lot of 7Up and bland foods and not a lot of stamping. I did manage to make one card with the newest A Muse release.

I love this little snorkel guy, and I have a bunch of ideas for him, but this is a simple start. The patterned paper is by Cosmo Cricket and it's all over blogs right now for summer. I love the circles, and I tried to replicate them in his circular shape and in the round tag. Here's a close-up:

I did color the starfish with Spica Clear, but it's always so tough to photograph the sparkle.

All right, off to face the rest of the week. I hope to be posting more regularly now, especially because there are some good challenges up on the A Muse blog.

Hope to see you soon!
