Soft and Gentle Flower

Even the person who loves RED sometimes has to do something different. Yesterday I woke up at 1:30 in the morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed. This morning I woke up at 8:30 with a terrible headache, and feel like I've been beaten within an inch of my life! Needless to say, the world goes on, with or without us, so here I am. No bright or zingy card today. I needed to use soft and gentle colors, hence the title.

I got this paper many years ago when I bought a scrapbook set that included a voice chip. My grands were all little, with those cute voices, you know? I made a book for my parents, who played it over and over and over. My Mom still does! I'm so glad I did! I used different paper, so I had all this left that matches.......even die cuts. I pulled them out today. Perfect. Not a lot of thinking, on a morning that thinking is well near impossible. I'm off with my coffee to the hot tub. I may feel better after. Have a great day. I'll visit you later. Hugs.
