Groovy Kind of Love

Happy Sunday!

Today is the first day that I have been out of bed and sitting up.  I was officially diagnosed with the flu last Thursday and it's been rough to say the least.  I've been in bed almost two weeks.  I've done nothing.  Nothing.  My poor neglected house and poor neglected family.  :(

I'm not well by a long shot but with Valentine's Day only a few days away I was motivated to get up and stamp today!  Just stamping took it out of me so I am going to post this and then its right back to bed.

When I saw this week's Color Throwdown Challenge I knew I had to play along since this is one of my all-time favorite color combos.  I decided to make my oldest son's Valentine card first.

The sketch is this week's Mojo Monday Challenge which really was a challenge for me.  I blame the cold/flu medicine I'm on. ;) I feel so spacey!

This sentiment is from one of my favorite Verve Stamps sets Feeling Groovy.  Each sentiment is a song lyric and since my son and me share our love of music I thought it would be fitting.  I plan on playing this song when I give it to him.

I kept the inside simple and used a sentiment from one of my other all-time Verve favorite sets, Hearts on Fire.

Thanks for checking out my creation today and I promise to be back this week with more Valentine's Day eye candy.

  1. What a great Valentine in non-traditional colors! Your son will love it! Hope you feel better soon. Many thanks for joining us at Color Throwdown!

  2. So sorry you're sick, Christi. I've had bronchitis for 6 weeks and am totally with you on the doing nothing. Your card is beautiful, though. Love the dramatic colors and patterns. Thanks for joining us for Mojo Monday!

  3. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well! Fun use of the sketch and that sentiment too! So happy you joined us at CTD!
