Playdate Cafe Challenge #160

And the colors this week are Mountain Top, Icy Blue, and Snowflake. Very appropriate for winter, I'd say!

This week has been a bit rough--both Jay and I have been sick. This happens very rarely, thank goodness (us both being sick at the same time), but it is not a pretty sight! We have been miserable and not wanting to do a whole lot but sit around and watch tv.

So when I went to make a creation for the challenge, all I could think of was that I wasn't feeling well!  I actually made a tag first:

I don't hate it, but the image didn't stamp quite right and I tried to fix it and it made it worse. Then the angle of the photograph makes it look funny, too. After messing around with it for awhile, I gave up and decided to make a journal page with my current feelings on it:

I actually really like how this turned out, even if I was "feeling blue" when I made it :)

Supplies of note: typewriter roller wheel stamp from Stampin' Up, washi by Queen and Co, flower by Making Memories, number stencil by Dylusions.

I hope you all are having a better week than me!

So, if you want to join the challenge, check out The Play Date Cafe! All you need to do is make a new project of any type, using the color story above, then link us up! You could win a gift certificate from!
