Today’s title sick & broken represents me and my stuff. I stayed home from work yesterday with chills, stomach pains, and vomiting. Yum… huh!? Sorry…TMI. I’m blaming it on Jon! Since he works with kids, he brings some illness home every other week. I’m going back to work today, but my energy is zapped. I had finished a few projects over the weekend and I went to photograph them this morning to find the bulb burned out in one of my photo studio lamps. So that’s the broken part. Since I couldn’t get a decent picture of my new creations, I fixed up a photo that I had intended to share long ago. These are holiday party invitations I designed for my aunt and uncle whose law firm is hosting a big holiday celebration. I made 100 of them. The 5×7 card base is Stardream Mars. The details are printed on River Rock cardstock. The belly band slides up and down to reveal the when and where details of the party. I used Cosmo Cricket Ribbons from the Be Good Collection for the belly band. The image is Stampendous Two Martinis. I colored it with Copic markers and added Candy Cane Red Stickles to the drinks and Stampendous Dot Sparklers to the glasses. The snowflakes in the background are from the Stampin’ Up Snowflakes set and stamped in the retired Cranberry Crisp ink. Thanks for stopping by today! Here’s hoping my replacement bulbs arrive soon and whatever sickness I’ve come down with would just leave already!
