Hello, I'm still here feeling a bit better today, thankfully.
Just a quick post today that I call Friends are like flowers.
I've entered this card in Splitcoast Stampers CAS 14 which they are calling Rock & Roll.
Basically, you probably all know that this means you stamp a solid image in the lighter of your chosen inks before rolling the edge through the darker ink.
My inks are Barely Banana and Apricot Appeal. I tried a few combinations before I decided on this one as I wanted to use the Sahara Sand card for the background. 
The stamps used are SU Upsy Daisy and Gina K sentiment from Elegant Flowers.
 Because it is quite a pale image (which is what I really wanted) I mounted it with foam tape onto Barely Banana. The only addition being the ribbon just below the sentiment. 
 The sentiment would probably have shown up more had I used just one colour instead of both!!  I might just make another to prove to myself.
Suns out here, so the house is open to get rid of the germs! 
Have a great day......

Love the rock and roll technique especially in the colours you have chosen.

Glad you are feeling better, just in time for your holiday.

Anyway I was just stopping by to see what you have been up to, I love the softness of this card and I think I will try a card using that color combo tomorrow, but for now goodnight (my time)! ~Donna
