Still sick - and it shows!

Well, I have to hand it to this cold. It came on quick and totally knocked Bill and me out! Some time this afternoon he decided that he felt better today than he did yesterday, so there's some hope for tomorrow, but today even after sleeping for 12 hours last night and taking along nap this afternoon I still can't say I feel well. I did feel a little better this evening, so I trimmed and mounted my From the Garden hostess set and quickly made this card, but even this simple card took just about all of the energy I had. As you can see, my water coloring is pretty poor, but I think I will be able to add a little more color when I feel better and will be able to salvage the card. And in any case, if you can overlook the water coloring flaws, isn't it a nice card? And so simple! Just one image and one sentiment. I can't wait to see what else I'll be able to come up with using this stamp some time later this week when my energy and creativity come back.
