An Atypical Monday

It’s not the usual Monday around here, but I’m sure you may have guessed that from the complete silence on my part!

After a wonderful three days away from home for the Thanksgiving holiday, all three boys are home from school today feeling under the weather.  Thankfully, after one small episode of needing a wastebasket for DS3, we’ve had no more of that kind of thing!  So far, it’s just some respiratory ick.  After having all three take a nap this afternoon, they seem to be feeling much better!  Crossing my fingers…

I did take a little sanity time while they were snoozing to make a quick clean and simple card for the challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  This week, it’s an inspirational photo filled with cheerful yellow, so seemed to be just the thing for me today!

Given the events of the day, a get well card came to mind pretty quickly!  I used one of the little steam images from the Hot Concoctions set to create the pattern on the tissue box before stamping the box image in black.  The tissue box and sentiment are both from the Healthy Vibes set.  So simple!

I hope you are staying well and are fully recovered from your Thanksgiving feast if you celebrated last week!  I seem to have an extra pound keeping me company since then, according to the scale, so I need to tend to that this week!  Nothing a date with the treadmill won’t cure…

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

    Hope the boys are better today! And you really should consider selling your cards…or maybe doing a swap? 😉

    I just love the clean simplicity of your card – the detail in the tissue box is the perfect touch!

    LOVE the way you decorated the tissue box and the little line under the “soon”. Hope the boys are doing better today!
