Queen for a Day

Hi there, Happy Saturday!! I am feeling a bit better today, I've been dealing with a sore throat for almost a week, and my nerves have been way over-active (from neck and low back) so taking my meds  and sleeping a bit LOL!

Today, the throat isn't so bad. We shut the air conditioners off for now, and opened the windows. and the neck shoulders and arms are much better (knock wood) and just my rt knee is being inconsiderate today (again knock wood).  so I guess that makes me QUEEN today!  (YEA,RIGHT)

anyway, here's a little diddy I made last night, I am entering it in Delicious Doodles for a DT call. Everyone please keep a positive thought for me :)

 I have two angles so you can see the embossing on the black card stock.
Card stock by STAMPIN' UP, Patterned paper rec'd as a RAK Flower by PRIMA MARKETING. Coloring by PRISMACOLOR pencils (I only have the 24 set, and my black is just about gone)
Digi sentiment is by TLC CREATIONS, Sexy Goth Girl digi by DELICIOUS DOODLES.
Embossing folder is Bubbles by CUTTLEBUG. Misc. ribbon slightly inked over to make it darker.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Whoopsie Daisy ...anything but Square
Ribbon Carousel ... get edgy
Top Tip Tuesday curved edges
Freshly Brewed Challenges ...CAS with less than 3 embellishments
Do You Stack Up ... embossing
Cute Card Thursday ...CAS
Inspire Me Fridays ...anything goes
Digis with Attitude ...anything goes
Crafty Catz ...embossing

Your art made me smile, I used to love the show "Queen for a Day" when I was little and YES you deserve to treat yourself like a Queen, Susan : ) I can't turn on the A/C because I get horrible migraines and my neck starts really aching too. Wishing you lots of blessings for health...

Heather said...

my idea of being treated like a queen for a day would include no screaming kids ... but well behaved ones :), watching a movie, playing games with the family.... and maybe a little alone crafty time with a cup of coffee :)

Thanks for playing along this week at Freshly Brewed Challenges CAS challenge
