Guilty as Sin

I managed to get a card made, thank you for all the well wishes. It all started last Wednesday when I felt like I’d been swallowing razor blades then the bad head aches started, I took the Thursday off work feeling quite poorly, Friday was much the same but I had so much to do that I had t just try and forget about it. Saturday morning the day of the wedding started with a couple of headache tablets and feeling pretty rough, got to the hairdressers they plied me with coffee. came home and more headache tablets, I put on a face of makeup for the wedding and got through it with smiles.

Saturday evening when we got home I made a hot toddy and Chris went off to bed, around 2 am I started the shakes I just couldn’t control them, I got into bed and snuggled up to Chris who thankfully put his arm around me and helped them to go away, Sunday I felt ill, aches pains horrendous head and watering eyes. I went to work on Monday but had to leave and come home and I’ve had 2 days since mostly in bed, thankfully I think the worst is over now.

So now onto my card, it is clean and simple I used 2 images Guilty Rocco and Guilty Bert and i just love their expessions Mo has captured them perfectly both digital stamps can be purchased from Mo’s Digital Pencil

Which one of this pair do you think ate them?

guilty Rocco and bert 

Coloured with Copic Markers corners scored and punched and a pretty ribbon to and pearls to finish.

Before you go the Dream Team are holding a Blog Hop I opted out of this one not knowing if I would get a card made but I know they’ll have some wonderful creations to show you.

It starts at 7am GMT and it kicks off at Heidy’s blog here

Jak, that sounds horrible, so glad you're feeling better! I've just come down with something too, razor blades, and did anyone get the licence number of that bus that ran me over?

Your card is adorable! What a perfect pair.

Wow whatever you had was nasty and I hope Chris doesn't come down with it! Glad you're better though. Great card, love their expressions, and the way you did the corners, I'll have to remember that!

Elizabeth said...

So sorry you have been feeling so rough.
They shared the chocolate and loved every bite. The dog won't be sick he's used to eating just a small amount.
You probably excelled at coloring as a child. Love the card.

Good morning Jak,
It is good to see you back and I'm so pleased you feel so much better now but you will feel tired for a while after such a nasty bug, so take time for you girl and recover totally.

Your card is fabulous as always and I too love your corners, I had never thought of scoring the corner's, I shall be doing a bit of that *Smiles*
Love ~ Lady Anne xx

Oh Jak it's sounds like you've had a terrible week do hope you're feeling alot better now though and we've missed you. Well done to you for getting through your daughter's 'oh so special day' and with alot of smiles and looking wonderful.
I love this card and the characters look so innocent but I'm guessing it was the little boy who is guilty! Lol!

Love and feeling better wishes

Hi Jak,
Lovely card - I think they both guilty and had the chocs!
I don't know how you can summon up the energy or the enthusiasm when you've felt so bad. Such a shame you weren't 100% for the wedding.
Hope you're feeling a lot better soon.
