My most recent disappearing act was not planned but rather the result of a rather unpleasant “slice of life.” I’ll explain later. As for my card, I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The bird (attached with foam tape) was embossed with Chocolate embossing powder.

A Slice of Life: Sunday was family day – time with Mom and Karen in the morning, son and grandsons in the afternoon, and home-from-the-hunt husband in the evening. Yesterday, I got up and while I had the ickiest of headaches, I got dressed and was on my way out the door when my stomach started to lurch, and I made a beeline for the bathroom. Once my stomach was empty, I made another beeline for my bed where I slept for about 20 of the next 24 hours. I was hot. I was cold. When I was awake, my head pounded and my stomach continued to expel whatever was in it, which wasn’t much. Although I felt worn out from the ordeal, I was better this morning and went to work this afternoon. A bug – nasty as could be but short in duration. A waste of time nevertheless.
I certainly hope your week got off to a better start. That said, I am off to see what you’ve been up to. After that, I’m heading back to my corner to try to make up for lost time. Have a great Wednesday, friends, and thanks for stopping by.
