NOT MY FAVORITE....

but hey, here it is!! I don't know what it was about this one, but I just could not get it right no matter what I did. So, I quit playing with it and decided that they can't all be great. I think it must be because of the 64, yes 64 shots I got yesterday- yikes!!! I was tested for a ton of different allergies and each one requires the prick of a needle so my arms look like pin cushions, not to mention they are all angry and red because of the allergens I was injected with! I also had my sinuses X-rayed AGAIN to see what else needs to be done so that I can live without having a sinus infection every other week....gosh, 41 and already falling apart, LOL! Anyway, on to the card - I used my Zoofari set for this one because I have only used it once and thought it was time to break it out again. I do like this set, but it is hard to find stuff to do with it! So, I decided on an any occasion card because we can all use those, right??!! I also used my slit punch to create the scalloped border. I will leave the recipe below - everything I used is SU! though, no rubbadultery today - LOL!! Enjoy your weekend, I am having a bunch of family over tonight for a barbecue so I best get myself to the kitchen and start getting stuff ready. The weather is beautiful here today - high 70s and not a cloud in the sky, I love it!!

awesome card! are you someone who does not like yellow, sometimes if you use a color that is not your type color you will have problems with a piece! it has a lot of mustardy yellow! ( nOT TO MUCH, but if you don't care for the color it might be why you had a hard time! PERSONALLY I love the color!)
Thanks for coming to my blog birthday party! GOOD LUCK! keep coming back for lots of chances to win!

A human pincushion - yikes! That does not sound pleasant. I hope they get to the bottom of your allergy problem. This card is cute! They can't all be our favorites.

Melissa said...

64 shots? Good Lord - you would have had to pick me up off of the floor as soon as they brought out the first one!!

Thanks for the reminder to use that particular Sale-a-Bration set. I plan to use it for a 5 for $5 class this next week!

Many Blessings,
M.

I've had the huge allergy testing done, too....what a pain (literally!) Hope you have recovered!

I love the navy and yellow combo of your card. It is the color scheme of the inside of my house, so of course I would love it!!LOL Cute card!

Have a great day!

Love the card...as for you getting pricked so many time...sheesh. I hope it was worth it and you get to find out what the heck you're allergic too (I hope it's not me) :-)
Have fun with your visitors!

Such a CUTE card Alex! This bird image is so silly it always makes me smile. :) So sorry to hear about all the shots and sinus problems. Sending you happy thoughts and you can send us some of that 70's weather, ok?! It's still WINTER in Nebraska this week and we're ready for SPRING! Smiles, Pam :)

Kim Marie said...

All those needles would mess with anyone's Mojo!! No worries, I think it's great!! Hope you get the bottom of this allergy thing...it's awful! Keep looking up!

Cute card,Alex! I almost bought this set but wasn't sure how to use it. So, did you feel like a pin cushin? I've gone through that myself and it's no fun. 70's, I don't think Chicago will ever get to that point. We're still in the 40's and no end in sight!!

Jenn said...

wow I can't even imagine being stuck with 2 needles in one day! your cards are great! thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Dottie K. said...

Hi Alex, I just found your blog thru the lovely post you left on my blog. Love the card! I just added you to my google reader so I can visit often. :)

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I'm totally jealous of your weather Alex! It's cold, rainy, and VERY gloomy here today! Yuck! This card is fantastic! I love it!

I can't believe how many shots you needed to get! Yikes!

Latisha said...

I really like the card, actually I love it! I made it to San Diego a few days ago. The cable guy just left, so now I have internet. I have terrible allergies too, I hope they figure out what you are allergic to. I am allergic to a lot of things including our dog. Its very sad, but I refuse to get rid of her.

Lesli said...

I think it is a great card Alex - that stamp is just too darn cute!

Denise~ said...

I think it looks great Alex. Love the color combos and the dsp. Works great with Zoofari images. Sorry to hear about your allergy tests, hope you feel better soon. They are no fun! :)

OMG...that's a lot of pricking...Ouch! Hopefully they can figure it out! I feel for you...I thought my once a year sinus infection was bad. Ugh! The card turned out cute and those little birds are darling! ;)

Joan and Amy said...
