Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Can anyone tell me what happened to the weekend? I felt like I went to bed on Friday night and woke up on Monday, it has just flown, we haven't done that much either, apart from the little bits of cleaning we did Saturday and then Sunday we popped to the shops for a few bits, came home and Paul was organising the Christmas stuff and putting it back in the loft while I sat in my craft room and made this card.
I am still really struggling with my finger, it is still too sore to put any pressure on, I tried having it totally uncovered on Saturday but there is a tiny edge where the skin has dried and it kept catching on things, clothing the sofa etc, the whole thing seems dry, it still feels like it moves when I use it (the piece of skin that I cut), I'm not sure if the whole thing is loose and would lift if I tried but its still to painful to even think about touching so I will leave it and see, I managed to find these things called 'Finger Cots', it's basically a tubular bandage for your thumb/fingers, the good thing is it's all cotton and very breathable so that is way better than the non adherent dressing I was using or the fabric plasters, both of which made the whole area wet. I didn't want to get my new dressing dirty so I cut the thumb section out of my surgical gloves and use that to cover the whole area while crafting, it stays in place really well !
I my craft area is feeling really cluttered and overwhelming so I think that this week is going to be sorting out and decluttering week, watch this space (as I said that about the pantry last week and I am still waiting to do it)!! I need a helper though as half the shelves are out of my reach, I have noticed that that is where Paul puts all the sweets and naughty things!!!
Here is my first Sketch Challenge card, I have to say that I really enjoyed making it, I had no real inspiration when I went to my desk but having the layout there really helps, in fact I made this whole card out of my Scrap paper box, I can't remember the name of the papers but they are from Stampin Up, as always with SU I had the card to match perfectly so using the scraps was really easy. The striped area at the bottom of the sketch I created by using striped card.
I changed the shape of the panel from an Oval to a Rectangle and instead of stars I used flowers.
The colours are really bright and vibrant, which is just what we need on these dull days.
I hope you like my first Sketch card, I can't wait to see yours!
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
