Update and an Elzybells Challenge

I had my gall bladder out yesterday. It was actually better than I expected. I usually prepare for the worst, then am pleasantly surprised when it's not as bad as I had thought.

This is me a little while after I woke up. Isn't it great how my skin actually matches my gown? hahaha... I took the picture with my Blackberry. I was SO thirsty and SO hungry because by the time I was allowed to eat food it had been 24 hours since my last meal.

So now I'm nursing 4 holes in my stomach, and am trying to drink as much water as humanly possible.

This week's challenge was to make a card with more than one fold. I have always loved pocket cards, so I chose to make one for this challenge. If you don't know how to make one, here is a tutorial at SCS

I used one of my favourite stamps from the last release called "Butterfly Ted" . He has so many useful applications: birthday, thankyou, get well etc. AND there are so many ways to colour him that he seems to be my go-to stamp lately.

I continue to use the papers from Making Memories called "Just Chillin'" and I also got some Crate Paper die cuts in the mail yesterday, and to my surprise they matched the paper perfectly. 
What I love about the pocket card is it's interactive, and self-contained. I've given these without an envelope as part of a gift basket or something, or I stick it in an envelope when I'm mailing it etc.

Check out the Elzybells Blog as well because Elizabeth has a little contest going on if you participate in this challenge.
