It Was One of Those Weekends

Where pretty much nothing went the way I wanted to it.  On Saturday I had hoped to make a card for one of my favorite color challenges, ColourQ, but instead I was literally flat on my back for most of the day with one of the worst migraines I have EVER had!   It sucked!!  So, I got nothing done.... a big fat NOTHING!!  Thank goodness I had waiting in the wings a card already made for another one of my favorite color challenges from the lovely and talent Dawn of WPlus9Design Studio, which is oddly enough is also called Color Cue!!  I just realized that!  Anyway, both color challenges are fantastic whichever one you decide to go with.  In fact, try both!!!   If you have not had a chance to purchase any of Dawn's wonderful stamp sets, please head to her store pronto (click either link above) and check thenm out.   For my card I used a set that Dawn debut last month called the Birds & the Bees.  What an adorable set!!!   And she just reveal two new sets for July... again, both super cute!



I hope that everyone in the US had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!  Heres to a better week, no migraines and lots of cardmaking.   Thanks for taking a peek!

Ugh...migraines are the worst! Do you get the ones that cause nausea too? Hope you are feeling 100% again, cause your card it 100% fantastic! I love the scallops and the little strip of green you added to the right side.
