365 Cards - #161 - Cool Collage

I'm sorry everyone for not keeping up with the challenges over at 365 Cards but I have been sick in bed since lunch time Friday with the Flu. I tried to make my card yesterday but was too sick to, so I am out of bed today long enough to do my card for today and will catch up with the other one tomorrow if I feel any better. I have only had the flu twice in my life the first time I was pregnant with Ashleigh and she is now nearly 21. I was in bed for a week then. You should have seen me people I was crying like a little girl cause I was sick and shaky and miserable to the point that Ray (My husband) wanted to take me to the hospital (in case it was swine flu) so he rang them and they told him if she gets any worse bring her straight up. Well I tell you I was not going to say a word even if I got sicker hehehe I hate hospitals!!! I only got out of bed today because my bones were hurting from being in bed for so long but I didn't last long. Ok enough is enough I need to get back to my bed. My card tonight is a joint effort with my hubby as I was sooking saying I was too sick lalalala and all the rest. Ray said to leave it and do it tomorrow to which my reply was (whiney like) I can't then I will have three to catch up on hehehehe I am laughing because I get really sooky when I get really sick. I need smacking sometimes when I hear myself. But last night I could not stand alone so Ray bless him, showered me, dried me and re-dressed me and put me back to bed. How tragic does that sound? I need smacking!!! So I digress. . .Ray helped me with this card or it was not going to get done. I went for so simple it's laughable.

This card is not the normal me and I apologise for that, but Ray mainly did all the placing etc and thankyou love, for that (he will probably read this *grins) So without further waffling from me because you all know I do that a lot. I am going back to bed.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Oh Michelle! I can't believe you made this, as sick as you were!! Stubborn woman! LOL

Knowing that it was a joint effort - and a labour of love for Ray - I think it's an amazing card! The BG paper's adorable, and the metal tag is cool!

I hope that you're feeling a bit better by the time you read this. Take care of yourself... next week is glitter week, and you wanna feel better for glitter. LOL

Blessings from BC

You poor baby! You have really been dreadfully ill, it sounds like. I wondered where you'd been keeping yourself! Your card is wonderful! Had DH helped with my cards, they would probably be glued upside down! tee hee! Give Ray a great big hug from all of us gals out here when you feel better and tell him we appreciate his taking such good care of our friend Michelle! Big hugs!!!

OMG, your husband must be the bomb!!! really? he helped you with the card, man. My husband is great but I think he would have givin me the strangest "I ain't helpin' you" look, if he thought I wanted him to help me. So is Ray going to get a blog now? your combined effort is great.........NOW please go back to bed, rest, relax, whine some now in then, but get better soon.

Michelle, your card is fantastic especially since you were sick whilst making it. What the heck is Sooking? Sounds like you ate something bad or something. :O
Hope you will be on the mend soon and tell your husband he is an angel for taking care of you so well.
