LLWWC7 and blog candy alerts

Well, long story short... Ken does not have the swine flu. He has strep throat. My poor boy had another round of high fevers with a headache, vomiting, and a stomach ache. At one point, he was so stiff and could hardly move his neck so the doctor mentioned meningitis. That nearly sent me over the edge. He is now on antibiotics and feeling so much better! Phew!

I am posting LLWWC7 late. That's La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #7.
It's a big challenge... the guest design team came up with a medley of challenges. It seems like a lot at first but it's actually not that hard to put together. Have you seen those cards out there with thirteen or fifteen challenges met? This challenge can't be as crazy as putting together thirteen challenges from different sites! lol!

Here's what the guest design team put together:

Karin - Two different patterned papers
Kimmi - Color Combination: Strawberries (red), Chocolate (brown) and Cream
Marcea - Embossing (dry or heat)
Paul - Scallops
Sue - Paper Piercing

I know you can do it! C'mon! Join in on the fun!!

Here's my card:

Ahoy, Pirate Rosie!

Hi Jane! Thank goodness Ken does not have the swine flu! You must be so relieved! Great, too that it wasn't meningitis either. My son had it when he was a 1 yr old and that was horrible. Glad to hear he's on the mends... Take care.

A truly wonderful card, Jane! It caught my eye the moment I saw it on the LLLC blog.

I'm so glad Ken is feeling better. I'm so paranoid, I run my kids to the doctor at the first sign of a fever... or at least, I did when they were little. We were on a first-name basis with the doctor and nurses! LOL

The crud is going around my house, too, but my kids are older and they seem to be knocking it off after a few days. Still, it's miserable to be sick.

Hugs,
Lisa

P.S. I love your new blog look!
