You leave an impression on me Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Just a quick comment and a card from me. This is for the Verve challenge using vellum! Now, I had to go back and look up the word for 'vellum' because my mind is shot. I woke today with weird waves coming over me and tingling both arms every ten minutes. I went to work 'cause I work at a healthcare facility - ha!

After four bites of yogurt and the realization I was not getting better, I wandered into Karen's office. She took over my job as Risk Manager about seven years ago, but she is a nurse and I don't have a clinical bone in my body. She took me over to get my blood pressure checked and Dr. Thomas determined I was having an allergic reaction to a medication he gave me last Wednesday. I am pretty healthy (in spite of being grossly overweigt) and don't take a lot of medication. Medication allergies run in the family, so I shouldn't be surprised. So she dropped me off at home around 10:00 and I slept until 6:00 p.m.!!!! I can't believe I slept the day away. I hate that! But I no longer have those symptoms. Am sleepy, though, believe it or not!

I don't recall using vellum on a card, although I had purchased it and was ready to go! I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder, then rubbed Cocoa ink over the letters. Used CTMH's Journaling Spots for the card (see, that might be the wrong name - my brain is not functioning!) and a couple of little baby pink conchos - aren't they cute?

Well, it's 8:24 p.m. and Alan is asleep. Believe it or not, I may go back to sleep despite sleeping all day. Good Lord. I hope I am up to posting more tomorrow. Thank goodness I took the time to create last night! Tee hee.

Thanks for enduring my musings, wanderings and probably typos - too 'out of it' to check.

Back tomorrow!

Beautiful card, Deb! Love the colors, the embossed vellum, etc. etc. All together, gorgeous!

Hope you are OK tomorrow and are able to sleep off whatever ails you. Allergic reactions can be scary.

Glad you're doing better.

This card is beautiful. I would never have thought to use journaling spots on a card!
