Color Throwdown #90

I took last weekend off to celebrate my birthday and to nurse a bad cold.  I woke up Saturday morning with congestion and sneezing and have been in a daze since then.  My birthday was Sunday and we celebrated both days.  That is what is awesome about having a birthday on the weekend.  The celebration carries over to both days.  The boys and DH took me out for Chinese on Saturday afternoon.  Then I got a nap in while DH took the boys to his parents, so we could go out that night.  I really felt like just laying in bed all day, but thought we better do something.  We went to a movie and went to bed before 10 p.m.  I took some cold meds, so I was out in no time.  We continued to celebrate on my actual birthday and took it easy most of the day on Sunday.

I still have time to play along this week at the color throwdown, so after cleaning all morning I sat down and created a card for my friend, Kay.  This week the colors are barely banana, rich razzleberry, old olive and pale plum.  These colors worked perfectly for Kay's card.  Kay is having surgery on May 10th to have her kidney removed.  Please put her on your prayer list.  They found cancer in her kidney and instead of doing a biopsy, they opted to remove the kidney.  I made this card to send to her next week.

I got to play with some new goodies from the summer mini on this one.  The small stamps on the side of the card are from the stamp set, Itty Bitty Bits.  I punch them out with the new punch pack that matches the stamps.
