More CASology

It's Friday and I am not feeling well at all. I've caught my hubby's cold and cough - yuk! Hate being sick in the summer! I have to go to work today too - can't miss it unless I have a fever or am throwing up - those are actually MY rules, not work's. I always feel so guilty calling in sick, so I just never do. Part of the reason is because all the other department heads come to work when they're sick, so I sort of feel like I have to too. Bummer!


Anyway, I'll survive and will definitely be resting all day tomorrow. I do have a card to share with you. It's another fruity one for the CASology challenge. (Not sure if I am allowed to submit more than one card per challenge.)

I used another Flourishes stamp, from the same set, Peaches and Cherries, but this time I used the peaches stamp. I've never colored peaches before, so this was sort of a challenge. (Used my Copics again.)



The sentiment is from the same set, and I just added a few buttons for fun.

Have a good weekend! :)

So sorry to hear you're feeling so bad. Hopefully this weekend will help. I'm so glad you made this card! After I saw your cherry one, I went over to Flourishes to drool over that stamp set. Now I get the treat of seeing the peaches all colored up beautifully! You have major talent, Barb!
