Hello Friends. It is a new year! Yay! 2018 is now here. I hope it is a fabulous year for all of you; including me. So many people are already sick with the flu this year; so be careful out there. Be sure to get plenty of rest, lots of fluids and stay away from crowds if possible.
I just got word this morning that my sister, Alice, is in the hospital with a bladder infection and pneumonia. She has never been in a hospital in her life; so I am sure it is a very frightening place to her. Her husband, Kenny, is also sick and sounds like he might have pneumonia as well. My sister, Becky, told me that her husband, Darrell, is very sick with a terrible cough; so he had to go to urgent care today as well. They don't even live anywhere near each other.
I finally had some time to create a tag for Aurora Wings "Anything But A Card' blog challenge. I used Aurora Wings "Wine Sprite" (PNG version); which is so adorable! I don't drink alcohol; but I had to use this digi. She is just the cutest thing ever! I love all of Mitzi Sato-Wiuff creations. You can find her digis at her Etsy shop or at AuroraWings.com. Check them out. I own most of her digis and try to keep up with all of her new releases; so I don't miss any of them. LOL! They are all fabulous!
I have been trying to get the colors corrected on this photo; as the picture does not show the true colors. I always have trouble taking pictures of purples. Does anyone else have that problem? If you know a solution; please let me know. It is frustrating and very time consuming. I tried everything this morning to get the colors correct. These are all shades of purple, in case you think they are blues. The ribbon is purple as well; but looks blue in the photo.
This is the PNG version; which allows you to print on digi paper. There is also a JPG version here.
