Oh say can you see...?

So sorry I am so far behind this week.  I share a job with a co-worker and she is off this week so I have to do the work by myself so I am overwhelmed.  I have been working long hours to keep up, then add that I am switching off this antibiotic sinus rinse to now a 21 day oral antibiotic regimen....and I am already exhausted. So if I don't get to your blog to visit this week please forgive me since I am having to make it to birthday, graduation and Father's Day parties. Some days just don't have enough hours in them, lol. Or my geenie, elf, fairy, or whoever is willing to help I don't discriminate has not arrived yet.
For this card, I used an Oldie Stella Calendar July USA.  On the right side I added a strip of red washi tape.
Enjoy your Friday and upcoming weekend.

Belle

Today at Catch the Bug there is a new challenge and the theme is Fairy Tale/Fantasy.  I just love this one so actually I made two Belle cards. This second one is using Belle of the Ball. I put a gold doily behind the image along with a bow and roses.  I didn't add a sentiment to this one since I wasn't sure if I wanted it for a birthday or for something else so I thought I could add it later.
