Now first of all, I'd like to let you all know that I mistakenly read the challenge wrong. I thought the color combo was black, white, and one other color, so if my card looks black to you, instead of a dark navy blue, your probably right. LOL! I have no idea how I made this mistake, probably because of all the stress I am under, but I did a big boo-boo! But I don't think it really matters, cause you still get the idea....right?
For my card, I used a new Digital Stamp Oasis image called 'Happy Hedgie with Flowers'. Isn't he a cutie? I colored him with Copic Markers and I used last week's Mojo 132 sketch. Because there was so much white and black space, I embossed all the different layers with my Cuttlebug to make the card more interesting. Here is a close up so you can see the coloring of the image better.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Mine didn't go accordingly as planned. Unfortunately I woke up at 5:00 a.m. on Good Friday with a bad case of the Stomach Flu and diarrhea. So I spent the entire day either with my head hanging over the toilet, or my bottom hanging over the toilet, also accompanied by the chills even though it was a beautiful 70 degrees outside and I was wearing a chenille robe and wrapped in a fleece blanket. I had quite the pity party for myself that day. I was so upset because I had looked forward to the holiday weekend for so long; I had so much work to be done and I had so much I had wanted to do. It was my first full day off in a week, and I was completely incapable of doing anything. Then, of course the very next day I had to go back to work for 9 hours. Although the worst was over, I still wasn't feeling well enough to be standing on my feet that long, but being the trooper that I am, I did. Yesterday however, was wonderful. We decided to skip the Easter Breakfast because I still didn't have my appetite back, but we did go to church in the morning and I got to wear a brand new Easter dress to church. I know that probably sounds stupid to some of you to hear me be excited about that, but I usually work EVERY Sunday afternoon and I have to leave for work directly after the church service is over, so I have to wear my work clothes to church. It just felt so good yesterday to wear a nice dress and high heels for a change! Anyway, after church we went to our friends new home and just had such a lovely meal and visit. So, in the end, even though I didn't get the weekend I had planned for, we still had a nice Easter Sunday. And, the best part is, my appetite returned just in time for lunch! LOL!
Have a great day! Amy
