Well what a week I have had!!! My middle son has been a very sick boy with severe vomiting, and got very dehydrated, so much so that if we didn't get fluids into him by a certain time he had a admission from the doctor to take him to the hospital!! Thank goodness we finally got it under control.
Let me tell you I am sooooo over cleaning up vomit, and to top it off I feel like I am coming down with it too :(
I had left doing this card till the very last moment and I must admit it has taken me a long time to make it, and am still not sure whether I like it or not!!
Anyhow I am now in love with this gorgeous DSP paper" Raspberry Tart" it coordinates beautifully with Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, and Rose Red!
Stamp set used "Live Like You Mean It" ( hostess level 1) and "Best Yet".
I really Love these new corduroy buttons it just finishes one's work off beautifully.
I am really looking forward to seeing what the other girls have come up with, click below to check out the action!
Have a fantastic night! I am off to a hot shower:)
Take care'

Your card looks fabulous Amy! I love the flowers! We have had a bout of the same thing with our young son too! It lasted a week and we also came close to visiting hospital! Not very nice!

Love the pretty flowers paired with those papers! And of course, those corduroy buttons and brads... (Still my very fave embellishment from the catalogue.)

Have a great weekend! I hope you son is feeling better!

The corduroy buttons are fabulous, aren't they? Love your card, Amy. The colours are beautiful! I hope you and your family gets better quickly. It's nasty dealing with sick kiddoes not to mention yourself :(.
