BBTB challenge life is good !

Hi Everyone, i am still coughing and trying to shake off this pneumonia, i really do feel much much better though so now my energy is starting to return i feel i can do a little more crafting !
This weeks challenge for the bbtb team was to use the cut life is good from the graphically speaking cart, i used brown and black with a hint of pink for my colour combo on my card !! i also used the accent essential cart for the brown shape behind the wording ! The butterflies were cut from graphically speaking, flowers were from my stash and i added gossy accents and stickles and inked with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink ! you can check out all the other wonderful creations from my fellow design team members HERE.

I,m sick !!! and i gave notice at work !!!

Yes i'm sick i have a wicked cough and sinusitus, i keep running a temperature and i'm feeling sorry for myself !! I went to the doctors yesterday as i am feeling so drained and he tells me everyone has this !!! i have a bronchial cough and influenza and i just wish it would go away. Anybody have any good home recipes or tips to help you feel better ?? I tried the vicks on the soles of my feet with socks on, i heard this stops you coughing but it didn't work.

On another note i gave my notice at work a week ago, the shifts were just to much, lots of weekends and nights working till midnight. Well it was distrupting my craft time !!! Hope everyone reading this is keeping well !!!
