THESE!!!!They make me SOOO MISERABLE this time of the year! For as pretty as they are and as much as people say they smell so good I suffer SO BAD! Monday I spent the ENTIRE day in the WORST allergy headache EVER! Yesterday I was smart and we spent the day by my mom's house! And today it is SOOO nice out and I am afraid to open the windows as I feel the pain in my head building! My house is surrounded with them! If I wasn't afraid of being hit with a HUGE bill to replace them by the homeowners association I would dig these bad boys out! So needless to say I will be suffering for a while till the pretties go bye bye! (and yes I have thought of cutting the blooms off right away, but my grandma says that will make more come back the next year!)
On to better things that don't make my allergies go into HIGH GEAR! Fake flowers! : )
This week my digi image from Cheeky Radish is this spring flowers one that can be bought here. I colored my image with Copic markers and the centers of the flowers are Prima crystals that I cut off of a larger piece, the cardstock is Bazzill and Coordinations that I embossed using my CuttleBug, and I finished it off with some Maya Road ribbon.Next up is the Paper Popsicles shaped card for this week. This is a yummy cake slice shape that I got to work with, and you can get yours right here! This week's theme is cardstock so I used white Bazzill that I embossed with the Cuttle Bug, Coordinations that I also embossed with the CuttleBug Swiss Dots, and the blue piece is also Cordinations that I embossed. I'm not sure if you can really call it carsdtock, but its close enough to me I used DoodleBug flocked cardstock for the brown frosting around the edge and then I cut some with my EK Success border punch to make the middle icing. To finish off my card I used some May Arts mini ric rac and DoodleBug letters.
So go and grab your cardstock and show us what you can do! Don't forget to link your entry right here to have a chance to win those SUPER FAB Martha Stewart glitters!
And last on my list today is my sneak peek of the Digi Day on SNR Card Universe tomorrow night!

I used the Its raining Its Poring image which you can buy right here and had fun creating this card using the sketch from Serendipity Scrapbooks. Be sure to head on over to the fun tomorrow night at SNR Card Universe!

Well I have to run and get the little monsters from school!
