Sneak Peek

I think I might go to the dr today. It feels like my cold is moving into bronchitis and I have asthma so that's not good. I'm concerned that I'm going to get worse while I'm out of town and get into trouble. Better to be safe than sorry, I think, and if I start antibiotics now I should be feeling much better by the time I leave. Hmm...yeah. Sounds like a good plan!

Okay, well here's my sneak peek for you!

Stamps: grass, turtle, carload, belated birthday 
Notecard: green kitchen, surf, cabana blue TD

Only one more sleep until you can get these puppies for yourself (unless you are fortunate to live near an LSS that carries A Muse and should already have theirs in stock)! Hooray for new stamps! For this card I stamped the turtle first, masked him off with some Eclipse Masking tape, then stamped the grass. I then used the carload stamp and just inked the packages on top of the car. Using my stamp positioner, I carefully positioned the packages on top of the turtle's shell. If you don't have a stamp positioner, you should get one! There's one in the 'tools' section of the A Muse online store. Just throw one in your cart while you're picking up your new stamps!

This one is so cute! I've got sick kids at home and it stinks! Maybe they will all nap and I can stamp later. Hope you are feeling better soon!

total cuteness Novell! Hope you got to the doctor...I went yesterday, for pretty much the same reason...cough leading to asthma symptoms. I am now on round two of antibiotics for the month, and will also be starting a fabulous allergy treatment...fun times :) Have a blast in Vegas!! Hope you feel 110% better so you can FULLY enjoy it :) Take care!!

Oh my gosh... I'm crossing my fingers you get better soon Novell! I waited too long to get on antibiotics. Once I did, it took so long to have an effect that I had to double the time... went back to the Dr. on Monday and he added on 2 more weeks so it will be 28 days total for me! Fortunately, it was all in my sinuses and my lungs were clear. Yours is much more scary... try to get some rest!
