Geisha Birthday

Good Morning fellow bloggers!
It is Oct 5th as I am typing this and I am finally starting to feel a bit better, Yahoo! Last weekend, I had my grandchildren come for a sleepover; I don't know if this was coming on anyway, or if the lack of sleep that weekend weakened my immune system just enough for this to take hold but, they went home last Sunday evening, and within hours, I felt like I had been run over by a transport truck. My throat hurt so bad I hated to talk, head was pounding, back and neck were screaming in agony, it was not a good place to be at all. Things got worse as the week went on. My throat was so raw, I actually consumed a minimum of a FULL package of Halls Cough Drops every single day, except for today. Anyone who knows me is fully aware that I go nowhere without a beverage in my hand. A normal day for me sees me drinking a full pot of coffee, 90-100 ounces of plain water and 2-3 cans of Diet, Caffeine Free Pepsi, (I AM NOT EXAGERATING!) This past week, even with drinking my normal amounts of liquid, I could not get enough plain water into me. The Halls alone were not soothing my throat; it was horrible!

Well, enough about me; onward to what you have come here to read ;) It is new challenge day at One Stitch At A Time.....#184 - Use a Digi!! This can be a digi image, digi sentiment, digi papers, etc. Any digi item on your card qualifies; just be sure to let us know what your digi item is. I really hope you will come out to play with us this week :) We are offering the fabulous prize of a FULL Set of the images the DT used in Challenge #182 to one lucky participant using a digi from the Stitchy Bear Store, in this week's challenge. The full set is valued at about $20.00!! One entrant using a non-Stitchy Bear digi will win a Gift Certificate for $3.00 to the Stitchy Bear Outlet Store. The digital image on my card was chosen by one of my team mates.
