Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and managing to stay warm, I read an article about the weather this is just the beginning of a really cold spell that we are forecast, the big drop in temperature is supposed to be tonight into tomorrow. So Sonia remember pack those thermal drawers!!! There is nothing worse than being cold, especially at night. I hope that you have a lovely time in Norfolk, are you able to capture a little video of Mark in action so that we can appreciate his talent?? (privately of course).
It will be lovely to be away from home, no cooking or cleaning, so enjoy every moment my lovely.
I managed to get a whole night sleep (tuesday into Wednesday), I think that I was so incredibly exhausted, my whole body hurt, so I went to bed early, Paul made me a hot water bottle and I must have fallen asleep straight away, I woke as Paul was getting ready for work but OMG was I in a world of pain, I had fallen asleep without taking my bedtime medication, now usually within about 40 mins of the time I am due to take it I start getting what I can only describe as painful pins and needles accompanied by aches and pains and incredible shivers, it's n opaite you see, so after being on them for around 14 years my body is dependant on them, I guess like a drug addiction. I think the hot water bottle eased the shivers and pins and needles and the exhaustion meant I was in such a deep sleep I just didn't wake up, so I got the much needed sleep, but boy did I pay for it, I was just about able to get up and move about without being in unbearable pain by lunchtime. So I have set an alarm on my phone to go off at midnight, just in case I am lucky enough to fall asleep again tonight. (fingers crossed).
Today's card (Circles) I made following Tracy, this card is one she made when she launched her stamps on The Craft Store, I really like the simplicity of the design, I just stamped a combination of her new stamps and coloured the butterflies and three of the circles using my Zig Clean Colour pens, I used Pink Frog card and had no problem blending the two shades of blue with a waterbrush, I added a Tim Holtz pen nib to the Butterfly's body, I think they work really well for that. I also glittered the wings, which I have tried to capture in the second photo. I hope you like my card.
That's all for today, I hope that you all have a lovely Thursday, especially Our Janet, In France and Our Michele in Scotland and Our Sonia of course in Norfolk.
Love and Hugs on route to all of you,
