Ughh.



I've been sick. Sicker than I've ever been I think. I managed to keep down a banana last night, but I've not eaten anything since Friday evening. Water and ginger tea have become my meals. I can't even sit up for long periods because I feel ill and dizzy.  I can't wait to shake this bug and get back to life! 

Today's card is for Tuesday Throwdown. The challenge this week is black and white with a splash of color! Fun, huh?
I couldn't resist playing with my WPlus9 stamps for this one. I used several images from the Woodgrain Silhouettes set. Sentiment is from Communique Sentiments by PTI. And that amazingly gorgeous ribbon is May Arts from the Practicing Creativity Designs store.

I hope you'll play along with us this week at the Tuesday Throwdown blog. B&W is such fun, especially when you get to throw in a touch of color!

Thanks for stopping by today. I've missed you guys.

I'm sorry you've been sick, Dana. Summertime sickness is the worset is it not? Get better soon!

I love the card. The shape of it is cool and I like how the little cirle looks like a magnification on the rest of the woodgrain. Cool.
