Yesterday's Challenge and a TAG!

Howdy my friends!!! Oh the dang flu had me down a bit..........although I did try to keep up with the blog rounds and my moderating on the Splitcoast Flybaby section. Other than that........I was a bum! A sick bum though..............YUK!!! I'll spare you the details and just say I'm glad it was a 48 hour stomach bug and not anything more severe!! simply MUST check out these blogs with some amazing creations with Melanie's Just So Hoppy stamp set!!!! And the contest for submissions with these is still on through Saturday sometime!!! I love Donna's Playdough Gift Set!!!! And check out Carolina's Envelope Chickie Pouch!!!! Now look at Jessie's Springtime Froggy!!!! Now look at Markie's Mom's Hoppy Birthday!!!! They've all done so many amazing projects and cards..........but those were some of my very faves!!!! :) I know lots of others are using these stamps.......but I'm having a hard time keeping up on all the new blogs I'm being introduced to!! I don't mean to slight anyone...........I LOVE blog-hopping and enjoy all the sharing and creating I've seen!!!

I did manage yesterday's SCS Sketch Challenge..........I LOVE this sketch!! But I was very slow and then went back to bed!!! LOL Is that how you know you have an addiction??? There is just no energy to muster up for ANYthing.......except a card challenge??!!!! ;) Well, I decided to use all my paper (except the card base and the white for the image) out of one package of my Basic Grey - Oh Baby Girl dsp. I LOVE Basic Grey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have I mentioned that once or twice or 100 times???? LOL Anyway...........really a simple card since I didn't have the stomach for anything difficult (pun intended!!). Just used my Priceless stamp set........totally love it!! And stamped an extra butterfly so I could have 3D wings and OF COURSE I glittered them!!!! I used Pretty In Pink and Bashful Blue ink. My hubby requested a card for their business associate who was just diagnosed with cancer, and I thought of something soft and shimmery. I also bought a little package of truffles to tuck inside.'ve been TAGGED!!! Actually Chrissy tagged me several days ago but life got crazy...........but it was fun, so here it is:
