Old Glory meets Carp
A good Thursday to you, everyone! I’m writing this post Wednesday night….today’s is the only card this week that I didn’t get done ahead, and oh what a challenge it was to make! I’ve been off work with the flu all week; aches and pains, fever, sniffles, wicked sore throat and laryngitis. My hair hurts! Poor Ciara and the kitties have been laying on the sofa on top of me looking wistfully at me, as if to say, “Mom, come on. Get up. Do something.” And the only times I had the strength to obey was when my bladder said to! I traveled by way of the kitchen back to the sofa each time, trying to sandwich together some sustenance, but everything tastes like….well like carp.
Our team at work has been hit hard with this flu. So the emails sent by the sickies started out saying “I’m sick, not able to come in today.” Then “I feel like carp again today, not coming in.” And then…it was off to the races. I work with a pretty crazy team….

Though I did telecommute Wednesday…I think I’m still contagious. Contageous? Agh. Too tired to think. Anyway – they say wait at least 24 hours from the break of the fever, and I had a raging fever attack about 4am today (Weds)….I had chills and shakes like mad! I’ve been pumping ib all day, and am hopefully staving off more fever- but I think I’ll seclude myself one more day before venturing out, and just work from home one more day.
And now on to what you really came here for today…a card! This one uses one of the fundraiser stamps from Stampers Best – be sure you get this one, not the other flag. There are two, and one means a dollar for OWH, the other doesn’t Isn’t it cool that companies let us buy things and do a good deed at the same time?? (This is the same company with the Ciara stamp – so you can get both at the same time!)
This is the sketch I used for it, click on it to go to the original post.
And a closeup of the flag.
Well there ya have it. The longest rambling post with the least depth to offer. I’m sick, I tell ya, and I feel like carp! Let’s hope the fish takes a hike before OWHtv.
***Note as of Thursday morning: It’s a new day!! I still sound like carp but feeling much better. There’s a light at the end of this tunnel!
