Make It Monday #38

Hi, thanks for stopping by today.

I sure could use the company!!

It's been a very long week with three sick little boys all coughing their poor little lungs up. Seems to be a particularly nasty little bug getting around school these last couple of weeks. Now I have come down with it too. Acutally I'm surprised that I didn't come down with it sooner.

I work at the reception at the primary school that my boys attend and part of my job is dealing with the poor kids who come in to sick bay. Some days I tell you, it's like I'm air traffic control at LAX with kids in a holding pattern waiting for a bed, LOL!!

I think now it's only the chocolate keeping me going. But that's ok isn't it, chocolate is a form of medicine, surely??

Anyhoo, it's time for this week's Make It Monday linky party. Another awesome selection of entries from you all. I am so sorry that I did not get around to commenting on as many as I would have like to. Between sick kids and my continued blogger problems it just wasn't happening.

Congratulations to this week's featured blogger and winning commentor. I do hope you click on the links to their blogs over at MIM and go say hi.

Now on to my card for this week. I have to be honest I have fallen way behind and it was a struggle to get this done in time.

I have used "flower Ruby" from Ladybug Crafts Iink and the sentiment is the "Fairy Sentiments" set also available from LCI.

Make It Monday #38 is now open and is sponsored this week by the lovely Emma from Crafty Emma's Store.

The Make It Monday linky party is open again.

Its a great way to show case your favourite card or project to new people.

You can even revive an old post. It may be old news to you but there are so many new blogs coming online every day that it is NEW to them. So come along link up and check out the other submissions and remember is all about just sharing the creativity and you may even find yourself making some new blog buddies.
And you just never know, next week's featured blogger may be you!

Don't forget......... if you leave a comment on another entry, mention that you saw their card on "Make It Monday" for a chance at second prize. The more entries you comment on the more chance you have of winning.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Michelle :-)
