Retro Funk

Today we all woke up not feeling well, so I decided to call the pedi and get the boys in. Both of them have sinus infections and are now on antibiotics. Roger and I are dealing with the same stuff. I think it's due to this very odd weather. On Friday we got 10 inches of snow, on Sunday another 2. Today it is nearly all gone! Tomorrow we hopefully will miss the big part of the storm, but Northern IL is supposed to get another 10 - 12 inches. Yesterday it was in the lower 50's by dinner time. I don't get it. Roger stayed home and I didn't get much stamping done, but took a few moments while Evan napped and Roger and Colin picked up the medicine at the pharmacy.

Both of these cards were made for the Color Combination Challenge on SCS. The colors are Ballet Blue, Real Red and Apricot Appeal. The first card was inspired by a layout I saw in a Paper Crafts magazine ad. They had used Designer series paper and I made my own since I didn't have any to match the color theme.

I promise to catch up on all of my comments as soon as I'm feeling a little better. I am so far behind with visiting sites and reading posts in Google Reader. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to return the favor soon.

Jenn, I hope your hole family is feeling better soon!
I can't believe you made two gorgeous cards with this color combo. I struggled to make one card that I could post!
