This Little Piggy Stamp set
Good Morning Ladies,
Oh my goodness, how cute are these pigs?!!
I have fallen in love with this stamp set, perfect for thank you cards, anniversary cards, well they would brighten anyone's day wouldn't they?!
I coloured my image with using the watercolour method, but I used the ink pads with a little water, painting onto watercolour card, I like how it turned out I think, I'm never sure with watercolouring though as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and you don't necessarily get a 'perfect' image with watercolours.
I used the new Stampin Up Berry Burst seam binding ribbon for the first time and it ties into bows like a dream!
Not much on the cards today, slowly getting myself moving around, the girls have Spanish mock exam today, Lucy had Biology yesterday, they both had Geography on Monday, Sophie has 5 hour Art exam on Friday, so tension is a little tight in this house at the moment. They finish on Monday so we can all relax a little then.
My son finally starts his Councilling today, he has waited for far too long, I am hoping that this will be the start of us getting our son back, it's been a tough year for him. He witnessed a horrific accident this time last year, a young mum lost her life under the wheels of a fully laden car transporter, she ran out to save her young daughter Cheryl had run out in front of it, Matt was working right beside the road and ran to help only to watch the poor young lady get dragged under the front wheels, he was first on scene and hasn't been able to get the image out of his mind, I was surprised that the police didn't offer any kind of Councilling as I believe they usually do. He has suffered terribly with his health since then too which is possibly down to stress, although he does take immunosuppressant drugs for his arthritis too.
So please cross your fingers that this is the first step in the right direction for him.
Well I have waffled enough for one day, I hope I haven't depressed you all, I do think it helps to write these things down sometimes, it's a kind of therapy in itself!!
I hope you all have a fantastic day,
Love and hugs
