Bugaboo Birthday Day 2

I can't seem to completely shake this flu. I may have a possible ear infection now. Guess I should just call the doctor and get it over with. Our school system is out again today because of the snow we got yesterday and the freezing cold temperatures. The wind chill was supposed to be below zero all day today. I decided I'd just stay in today. I had thought about going to the grocery but we have plenty for dinner and I don't have to pick up the twins today. They are in school even though the system is off. Go figure!
So I had a bit of time today to play at my desk. Hoping to get a more time later today but I have a few things to clean up before I do. I did get a card done for the Bugaboo Birthday sketch challenge.


I used the Bugaboo image Birthday Penguin Cupcake. I colored him with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers and die cut him with MFT Stitched Circles. I inked the background of the image with Tumbled Glass distress ink. The circle is backed with Spellbinder's Scalloped Circles in red card stock. I added a bunch of gems around the scallops to bling it up! The confetti paper is a piece from my scrap box. The sentiment is from Hero Arts It's Your Day stamp set and was heat embossed with black embossing powder and then die cut with MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. The base is yellow card stock. I am entering these challenges:
I am off to see what else I can get accomplished before making dinner. And then hope to play at my desk later on. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a special surprise. Thanks for stopping in today! Stay warm.

Bless your heart, you have really had a rough time. Flu, sinus, ear infection! Two years ago I was soooooo sick, it wasn't the flu but it was really bad and I ended up getting a sinus infection and of all things blew a hole in my eardrum! Antibiotics didn't work and I ended up going to a ears, nose and throat specialist and he cleared it all right up! I couldn't have crafted if you paid me so I commend you for all the beautiful cards you have made while you are sick!
Your card is so cute I love the little penguin image (Ruby loves to go see the penguins at Sea World) and the sparkle that you added.
I sure hope you feel better soon!!!
Hugs,
Pam
