Well, the illnesses seem to be clearing out, for the time being (knock on wood). I thought Little Man was feeling better after his Christmas illness, but something else slammed him on Tuesday, so it’s been a bit of a rough week. I am just praying and hoping that we are all on the mend now and can get on with life!! We are behind in lessons and just about everything else, and I never thought I would be happy to be ‘back to normal’ with just the fibromyalgia! Just having fibromyalgia feels like a dream come true compared to all the crappy illness of the last few months. I have been COMPLETELY WIPED OUT.
I am here today with my creation for the Dynamic Duos #36 challenge, which is for Real Red and Basic Black with a Valentine Theme Dessert Option. This is pretty much the only card I’ve made in the last few weeks. I’ve had a smidgen of energy to do some Copic coloring, but the cards are darn near non-existent right now. So I am totally patting myself on the back for this one!
I accepted the dessert option and used a few more of my new supplies to create this Valentine card:
I used PTI’s Pure Poppy instead of Real Red. And I used my new MFT Homespun Hearts stamp set for the sentiment, along with a little ‘xoxo’ from PTI’s Tiny Tags.
I’m still stuck on minimalist mode, because let’s face it – life is a chaotic mess right now, and I have invested every last part of me into the hope that “this too shall pass” and that better times and better health will come our way soon. 😉
Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Dynamos have created for this challenge and to check out the details for the challenge. I hope you will participate with us!Allyson Andersen (me) | Christina Barnes | Vicki Burdick | Karen Day | Deanna Dean
