Loosing my authority...

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to command authority from your children and your DH when you can't talk louder than a stage whisper? *chuckle* Argh, this being sick thing is not fun. I can't discipline the children, I can't call them in to dinner, I can't let the little one know that I hear him when he calls for me. All because I'm losing my voice and have the worst sore throat ever.

I made this card in triplicate a few weeks ago because I wanted some classy, yet simple TY cards. Actually, the other two have a different ribbon, but when I received this pretty kraft ribbon in the mail I couldn't resist replacing the original on at least one card! Stamps by Verve Visual, PP by 7 Gypsies, CS by SU and Bazzill, ink is Ranger Distress walnut stain, brad is unknown.

DID you see??? Check it out! The Verve Visual card contest deadline has been extended until Friday night, so get your entries in! The prizes are amazing, and you can't win if you don't enter!
