Happy hump day everyone!! It is hard to believe it is Wednesday already. The week is just flying by. Today looks like a hot one here!! Almost 100 degrees and VERY HUMID. Life is always so eventful at the Olsen household. Monday my hubby came home from the Emergency room after slicing two of his fingers on sheet metal and needing stitches...yesterday my youngest daughter woke up with a rash on her face we thought she had hives...well it wasn't is poison ivy. This a.m she woke up and it is her eyes are almost swollen shut.
Since Meghan is miserable my time is limited today. So today is a short post.

The card I created today uses Angelica's Heart Socks from Inky Impressions. I used the Crazy 4 Sketch for this week.

I made it to coordinate with this box that I created with Bag it Up template by Leigh Ann Baird available at the Wild flower Patch shop.

I will add more to this post later...I just got a doctor appointment for my daughter and I need to take her right now. Have a great day!!


I am back...looks like Meghan does not have poison ivy just a very severe allergic reaction! Yikes!

here is the recipe and deets for my card...

Angelwood said...

Chris, what a beautiful set you've made. Love the sketch and papers you used on your card and I do love the gift box you made. Fabulous ideas.

So sorry to hear about the run of bad luck your family is going through right now. I will say an extra prayer for you guys tonight. ps. My daughter gets poison ivy every year really bad. All she has to do is look at the plant and she breaks out. Make sure you get her to the doctor since it's on her face. Poor thing. hugs, Angela

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Chris, so sorry about your husband and daughter. My daughter's face reacted like that once after eating mango. It looked like poison ivy on her face. The first time she ate mango she was fine, the 2nd time she had a few rash bumps on her face that we didn't think to much about. Well, the 3rd time was the charm and her face looked terrible and puffy. She won't eat anything that lists mango as an ingredient--even those little dum dum suckers.

I hope your daughter recovers soon and I hope your husband's fingers don't hurt too bad!

Oh and your project is top notch as always!

Grace said...

What an adorable set Chris!!!! I just love the sweet image and how beautifully you colored her! So sorry about all the troubles your poor family has been having! I do hope by now that Megan is feeling better and the Scott's fingers heal quickly!!! You could write a book my friend!!!!

Deb Neerman said...

What a fabulous gift set, Chris! Love it!!

Annette Bowes said...

Oh poor Meghan hope she makes a full recovery soon and not forgeting Scott, hope his fingers are not too painful.
