Flowers For You Girl - CK #75

Hi my friends.  Happy Thursday! One day closer to Friday.  We all love Fridays. Wish I had some good news about my throat, but I am still having issues with it and have an appointment on Wednesday to see a throat specialist. If she can't figure it out, not sure who can. My ENT thinks I might have Reflux although I'm not bothered by indigestion or heartburn, but having a chronic sore throat is one of the symptoms. So now I'm taking Prilosec to see if that helps.  So far, no.  I also changed my allergy medicine yesterday to see if that might be an issue. You know sometimes when you take a medicine for a long time, your body gets used to it and it stops being effective.  So we shall see.  Meantime I muddle through with 3-4 hours of sleep. It's amazing that I can get any work done at my office.

So this week at Creative Knockouts our Theme is Hearts A Flutter.  We are getting close to Valentine's Day, so let's see lots of hearts on those cards.  I went with mostly flowers. Aren't they the go to gift for Valentine's Day along with chocolates!

  1. What a lovely card Maggie - I do love those flowers - and I hope you will be bought some chocolates for Valentines :-)

  2. So cute - the flowers are fantastic and you sure do know how to color! I hope you figure out what's ailing your throat soon, my friend!

  3. Love all of the flowers and wonderful coloring too!

  4. Oh first of all - get well soon! I hope the doctor will find something and you'll be okay soon.
    Your card is amazing, I love the colours and all the details. It just wowed me!

  5. Oh, goodness, I have to tell you I had throat symptoms that were so scary I was afraid to go to the doctor. Throat sore, losing voice, really could hardly talk, couldn't swallow pills. I don't even want to say what I thought it might be. Was I ever relieved when I found out it was acid reflux! Nexium and now Prilosec fixed me right up. You can have acid reflux without even realizing it. Anyway, I came to look at your card... It's so pretty with the coral rose trim and sweet lace. Love the bright touch you added with the lime green bucket. Cute!

  6. beautiful card as always maggie! and i am so sorry about the throat issues... i hope you get it figured out soon and it doesn't cause you too much distress!!
