What a difference a day makes! My 18 month old son was hit HARD with a flu bug early, and I mean EARLY yesterday morning. After a middle of the night bath, changing his bedding and changing his PJ's one more time, I brought him back to bed with me, only to have him get sick two more times :( Thankfully I was prepared didn't have another big mess to clean up. It's so sad when your baby is so sick...he was so miserable. He finally feel back into a sound sleep and I was able to get him back to his own bed...an hour and a half before I had to get up. And of course this all had to happen one a night that my hubby was out of town for work. Needless to say, yesterday was a long day and I ran out of fuel before I had the chance to finish the cute card I started on during nap time. The good news is, my little man is feeling much better and is back at it, getting into all sorts of toddler trouble today!
This card was inspired by the super cute inspiration challenge this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This photo makes me want to have a fun Valentine Party!
One of the teachers at my twins school has a birthday on Valentine's Day, so my first thought was to use this inspiration to create her a Valentine Birthday card. I love the single red envelope and chose to bring that into element into my card, along with the cake. And I added one little heart for good measure :)
Paper ~ Whisper White, Real Red

The sketch for this card comes from the great ladies over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday..they always have great sketches to help me get started! I recently came across a new challenge site (new to me), Stampin' Royalty...what a fun site! And this week's challenge just so happens to be Birthdays! So, I'm going to submit this as my first entry with them as well.
Hoping the rest of the family stays healthy and no one else gets the yucky flu bug. I'm so very thankful that it was just a 12 hour bug and not any longer...I don't think I could do two nights in a row with next to no sleep! Looking forward to spring coming!
