Happy B-earth Day!

Hi all, hope you are well. This is kind of a surprise post today. I actually have several posts already scheduled for the next week and a half, but ended up staying home all day with my youngest today and after I did the workout I promised myself I would do and would *not* bail on, I decided I would treat myself with some creative time. I am worried about my little man, though, it doesn't help that of all my boys he's logged more hospital time than the other two combined! Plus he's the youngest, and he is the only one that (in his lifetime anyway, not during pregnancy) have I been told that he easily could have died from an illness. Every time he gets sick I get anxious... I need to stop worrying. I know it does me (and him!) no good at all. :( I'm sure he is fine. Of course he seems better this afternoon. This morning his face was a white as a sheet and he had these really awful dark circles under his eyes. I actually started to take him to school, and he had to throw up on the way there. I was already concerned, so we just ended up coming home at that point.
Anyhow, back to the card, my desk was/is a mess and I ended up using a bunch of stuff that was already out. I decided to play a challenge this week. This is for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge. Here's the sketch for this week:
I used Forest WhimsyWhimsical, and Birthday Buddies. It seems I can always use another birthday card and the sentiment seemed to fit with the mushrooms. This gnome is so cute! I love him :) I paper pieced his hat with some digi paper I already had printed out from CYDI? I know that cut on the newsprint paper is feathered. I really need a new blade! In order to get one, though, I bet I'd have to leave the house! LOL
I added a few accents with some fussy cut mushrooms and tree stump that I cut from woodgrain embossed paper and then colored. 
Well, I hope that you are having a great day! I'm hoping that my worried mood and his illness will be much improved with a good night's sleep tonight! 

biggest hugs, Noelle
