Magical Monday - Vintage Card or Tag

Carol West brought us a vintage theme over at the Paper Cupcakes Challenge blog and not only is it a vintage theme Paper Cupcakes is giving away the image "Doodle Flower 4" as well. So, why don't you stop by and join in with us.

Now, I am never really sure what falls into a vintage theme, so I am not sure if I am really good at this. Vintage always seems a little challenging for me, so I am not sure if my card fits it or not, but I do like how it turned out overall.

I went with blues and a subdued green color. I colored my image with my Bic Mark-its and then chalked the edges of my image.

The large die cut is from spellbinders and the small corner pieces are from Cuttlebug.

I am still fighting a horrid cough and Avery came home from school on Thursday last week and ran 104+ temp for two days. Saturday it finally went down to 103 and Sunday he woke up with a normal temp, but then it went to low grade again. I will be taking him to the doctor on Monday and hopefully me to med-check. Really, I am over this stuff. It just seems like we keep getting it in cycles. This week I start a job with a faux finish so the week should go quickly. The last 4 days we have had some fairly nice weather, although I wish I could have enjoyed it a bit more. I have taken naps the last two days, which is rare for me, but much needed. Here to a good week and hope that everyone starts feeling better.

Morgan's friend bought her a parakeet for a birthday gift and she decided to buy one herself one as well so she had a set. They are very pretty and they seem to be getting comfortable in their new home. She named them Angel and Artemis

I think Artemis is in love with his reflection. He has sat in front of the mirror since he discovered himself!


I also made a cake for a silent auction for a local youth baseball team. They wanted it to have the logo of the team; which I designed as well. Not like I didn't have enough to do this week. Now remember I have never taken a cake class in my life so this is just me borrowing my neighbors stuff to decorate a cake, but I think all in all it turned out OK. It was fairly large, two cake mixes, one chocolate and one white. It made it a tough day with a sick little boy though that wanted to be snuggled.

Well, that's my week in a nutshell and I am hoping for bed early tonight, so have a great week!
