CAS-ual Friday loopy


Get this. The school calls me at work yesterday and says my oldest has pink eye.
What the heck is pink eye?
(I'm thinking he got marker in his eye or something)
They tell me it's really conjunctivitis and is highly contagious.
WHAT? They want me to bring him HOME?
Are they serious? 
I don't want any contagious diseases in my house, who are they kidding? He can stay there with all the other walking, talking petri dishes. And that's final.

*sigh*
Okay. I'll come get him.
Poor kid. 12 years old and can't run in the school Marathon today because he's contagious. And I have to take the day off from work. Poor me.
NOT!

So things are a little loopy around here, to say the least. 
I am running around after him with a spray bottle of vinegar and a cloth, wiping everything he touches, telling him not to touch his eyes/face/nose every 15 seconds, and making him drink colloidal silver. 

Which brings me to this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge...


Make loops of some sort on your project this week!

We were sponsored by the AWESOME ribboncarousel.com folks who make the coolest ribbon storage system on the planet!

I had a lot of fun with this challenge and made oodles of loops on my card!
I hope you'll play along with us and join in the loopy fun.

Now I have to get back to my son with pink eye and make sure he hasn't infected the rest of us yet. I don't personally care for the color pink. *wink*

Thanks for stopping by today,
*mwah*

First off although your card is absolutely stunning...DO NOT send it to me! Unless of course you wash it.
Having pink eye is no fun at all and poor YOU could get it. Sending you hugs from very far away.

Oh, I feel so bad for your poor son. And you! Pink eye and lice are the dreaded phone calls no mom wants to hear. On the brighter side, I really do love your card. Such a fun layout and fun ribbons, too.

LOL! You're story made me laugh. esp about the petri dish comment!!! hahaahaha anyway, i'm following your blog now and it was your card that stood out to me. I like the way you added all those little loops. And that orangey stuff is cool, too. Is it mesh?
