So when it rains, it pours...

I know I have been MIA for a couple of weeks. First Charlotte was sick. She just had a cold, but it knocked her down for a couple of days. Then my middle child, Jake got really sick. At first I thought he was just trying to get out from going to school, but by the second day I really believed him. By the third day we ended up at the doctor's office checking him for strep throat and by the fourth day we ended up in the emergency room because he was still running fever and was now complaining that his neck hurt. His pediatrician told me to take him to the emergency room to be evaluated for meningitis!! Yikes!! Of course the kids are now well. No meningitis either. And now....Neil has a torn up knee. He has torn his ACL so he started physical therapy rehab today to try and forgo surgery, but I really think that is coming soon.

So that is where I have been.

Can I tell you how much it has been killing me not to scrapbook.

I did manage to get a couple of cards done though.

Here is one that I did for the Die Cuttin' Divas card challenge blog:



This particular challenge was to use an "Unused, & unloved" cartridge. So basically use a cartridge that you have never used before. Sounds crazy, right? Why would you have a cartridge that you have never used. I am embarrassed to say, that I did. One of the perks of being on the Imaginisce DT last year was that we would occasionally get some other manufacturers products. And I did receive several Cricut cartridges from them.

The cartridge that I used in this challenge was the Robotz cartridge and the Simply Sweet font cartridge. I never thought I would use the Robotz cartridge, but I think my little robot turned out quite cute.

Come back tomorrow and I am going to have a give away.

That is all for today.

Products used: Cardstocks: Core'dinations, BoBunny; Patterned Papers, twine, & stickers: Jillibean Soup; Jewels: Imaginisce Irock; Cricut Cartridges Robotz, Simply Sweet: Provo Craft; Adhesives: The Sticky Thumb, & Glue Arts.
