This is the Anniversary card that I have been making for an order. I just love the striking contrast of the Purely Pomegranate and the Basic Black along with the subtle color of Soft Sky. I combined two Hostess sets, one old and one new. I just love Garden Silhouettes and I don’t think that one will ever leave my stack of sets. I then threw in the little bird from Spring Solitude. I never realized I don’t own a Happy Anniversary sentiment so I combined the two stamps from Fundamental Phrases and you have to use your Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement of these just right. Do you believe that I actually stamped in Basic Black ink? I don’t think I’ve pulled that color out in at least 6 months, or since Basic Gray was released. I have issues with that color. I can smear it hours after it is stamped and I always have to heat set it on Whisper White cardstock. I thought it was a fluke with the very first stamp pad of Basic Black that I bought so I bought a second ink pad. The same thing happens with the second one too.
It was a long night with Evan and I think I got in five hours of sleep at the most. He spiked a high fever again and the vomitting started again. I think I figured out what is happening to him. He absolutely loves tomatoes so on our weekly trips to the store for fresh produce I always pick up a ton of them. This week they didn’t have any vine ripe ones that looked too hot so I went with the regular red tomatoes. On Saturday he ate an entire tomato himself. Within 12 hours he was running a high fever and vomitting. I sure hope we didn’t get a bad batch of tomatoes so I’m going to call the pediatrician again this morning. Colin has his eye Dr. appointment today so hopefully Evan will take a nice long nap while he is gone and Roger or I can rest then too.
