Take me away....

Wow, can't believe this week is 1/2 over!

I want to apologize for not getting to your blogs the past few days.
Sunday and Monday, I had tilers here working on kitchen and laundry room floors.
Yesterday, I finally went to see about my back and hip pain, and the doc said that I need to stand as much as possible, and that sitting is the worst thing I can do.
Well, guess what I have to do in order to post or blurf?
Yep, I have to sit!

So, this will be short today!

This card is made for Create with TLC, using another of Paulette's fun images, and one of her free sentiments.
Coloring is done with colored pencils and min. spirits.
If you have not been to this blog, stop everything and go check it out!
Paulette is a very talented lady!!!
Don't you just want to be taken away to this beach???

I will also be posting this card here: (thanks Sally McD, as I have not been able to search for challenges this week!)

Just Us Girls: Use digi

Stampin' Moments: Simply sponged

The Shabby Tea Room: Summer Fun Theme

A Spoonful of Sugar: Summer Theme

I haven't been blurfing either. (My kids would totally crack up at that word) I love this card. It is so cute. I also love your border. Good luck with that. I've never stamped a border. The one time I tried to stamp on walls I slipped all over. Can't wait to see the results you get!

Chelsea said...

cute card ... you could always try to stand and craft ... LOL! Hope you feel better!

Dana said...

Ouch. I'm sorry about your fun. But you card is great! I like the nestie shape in the corner. Thanks for playing along with TT!

Brenda said...

Patti what a fun card!!! Great image with wonderful coloring!

Curt in Carmel said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your pain Kiddo! You need to order one of those tall bar tables. Then you could put your computer on that and it would be standing height for you! And since it was a "bar" table, you could get you a bar stool to sit on when you were tired of standing. And since it is a "bar" table, you could also stand there with a nice big alcoholic drink!!!!! I think I just talked myself into a bar table! LOL Love your card! Cute image! Feel better my friend! Best, Curt

Lisa said...

Vicki said...

Gorgeous card clean and colorful! I sure hope your pain is better kiddo...would love to see a pic of that new kitchen when you are done!

Lynne in NI said...

Oh yes please Patti, about a week there would be lovely (though I'd need a Man Friday to deliver meals and drinkies!)
Hope you're feeling better soon

Well, as long as you're standing, you might as well start walking... which is what I need to do, too, so we'll do it together... virtually!

Love to you my friend!
