Card Recognition

time to relax


Today's card pretty much sums up my day...  I came down with the flu yesterday while at work and spent the second half of the day walking around like a zombie.  I even took a cat nap on the couch in the office, only to be woken up by someone asking for directions.  I came home at 4:30pm, went to bed, got up to eat something, realized I had a fever of 103 and went back to bed.  So today, while I'm feeling significantly better, I'm still walking around in a bit of a daze (thankfully my co-workers rallied and covered some of my day at work, although I'm planning on going in this afternoon).  PTI is having some anniversary fun and today's challenge was to be inspired by one of the DT's favorite cards.  Ashley Cannon Newell made this card and I immediately drawn to the May Arts ribbon (I know...).  I used my favorite PTI On the Couch set and added a fun fabric brad to honor the strawberry on her card.  Hope everyone else if feeling better than I am!!!
