Monday morning 'brews' .......

Hee hee!
I've got the Monday morning brews - I mean, blues!
It's Spring Break here and ours started out with the flu!
Our son came home Friday with a fever & flu like symptoms,
just to go downhill from there and struggling with this whopper of a flu -
going on day 3 :(
Poor little boy is positively miserable and
we're praying we don't start dropping like dominos,
especially our daughter who is immune compromised :(
Needless to say,
I've been barely sleeping and being nurse to this poor little one,
lots of TLC for him,
lots of coffee for me!
Our oldest daughter has driven to Starbucks twice this weekend
just for me - she absolutely can't stand the smell/taste of coffee
so the fact that she did that, for lil 'ol me, well it just means the world to me ♥
How 'bout this fun image !
wish I had a S'bux the size of this cup!
Ohhhh I'd be so happy ♥
It's actually my card submission for the Mystery Image swap by Imke
on SCS ~ Jo was our hostess this month! I found these super fun
papers in my stash pile and just built a card around them.
I also decorated the inside of the card panel with this
sentiment ~ such true words!
I hope your weekend was wonderful
and Spring/sunshine has started to show it's lovely self,
wherever you may be in the world!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  12. This is a super cute image and love the bright, cheeriness of the card. Hope everyone is back to normal soon!

  13. Oh no...I feel for your son and you, too. How could this happen on Spring Break? Yuck!! Your card is just so cute and your daughter so sweet. Hope all is well soon and no one else gets sick.

  14. I love this fun card- it is so you! Hope your son recovers quickly- 3 days is a long time to be down with the flu : ( I will keep fingers crossed the germs stay away from the rest of your family!

  15. Oh for a white choc peppermint mocha latte (actually the SBucks coffee is a bit too strong for me, but oh, those lattes!). So sorry your little one has the flu, and hope the other youngster doesn't succumb. It's hard when your immune system goes wonky. And pleased you have a sweet child who will fetch your coffee, which I bet you really needed. This is an adorable card, and fits me in the mornings! Great work on it too. TFS & Hugs
