It'sWednesday, and Everything I Got Hurts!

So I woke up this morning and "Arthur" has come to visit...my fingers hurt, my back hurts, my feet hurt....you get the picture!  I did manage to make it to the coffee pot and get a cup of coffee and some pills and I'm sure, I'll be back on track shortly.

This morning I want to share another card I made for Heartfelt Creations.  This is my third posting with the new DT and I'm really enjoying working with their stamps.  I can tell already that this 6 months is going to go by way too quickly!  I'm having so much fun and I'm learning so much already...there is so much talent on this team!  You can see  a sampling of my work, as well as the rest of the DT here at the Heartfelt Creations blog.  If you would like to visit the other members of the DT and check out their blogs you can do so by clicking on their name in the listing on the right hand side of my blog.  While you are there, be sure and leave them a comment.  I'm sure they would love to have you visit and have a look around!

Goodness, this is pretty! All that femininity. Love the red cardinal with the delicate Capella paper and the pink flowers and pearls. I hope you're feeling better. Sometimes I don't know why everything seems to hurt on me, but getting up and walking across the room can be a real chore.
