Good Morning Ladies,
Is it me or does this feel like a really long week??!! How can it only be Thursday? Yesterday I kept thinking it was Friday all day, I guess it's after the Holidays etc, got to get back into a routine. Anyway how are you all, how is your week going?, I hope that those of you that have been struggling are starting to feel a bit brighter. I am definitely better than I did at the weekend, although a little tired today, I keep waking up in a full on panic attack, I think it starts if I end up sliding off my pillow, so I end up laying almost flat, whatever it is is causing me a full on panic attack, it took me over an hour to get my heart back into a normal rhythm, thank goodness I have Sudoko's on my phone, they seem to help calm me down, probably because you have to concentrate.
Sophie pretty much slept on and off all day yesterday, I think she said her flight was 10 1/2 hrs coming back, she was so excited to see us and be home, we cooked some of her favourite food and Toffee Pecan Roulade for dessert (her all time favourite) but she was struggling to stay awake the whole time, she said that there was an 'unhappy' child on their flight meaning that they got no sleep at all, which made it worse. She was excited to give us all the gifts she bought for us, she chose some lovely things bless her. I think she was asleep by 9pm and I still hadn't a peep from her at 3pm yesterday, so I called up to see if she wanted a drink, she did come down but looked shattered, so we are having a roast tonight with lots of vegetables as that it the one thing she said she really missed, I am guessing that she will go upstairs and chill out with Lucy for a bit and then get another early night. I am sure it will take a good few days to get back on track, luckily she doesn't have University until Monday.
Today's card is a perfect card for 'Men' I was inspired by the lovely Jo Rice, her videos are so lovely to watch, she seems such a lovely lady, she makes some lovely projects for Lavinia stamps too.
I used a Compass stencil, which I added Rustic Wilderness and Vintage Photo DO and spritzed with water and laid it down on a piece of watercolour card, I tried using super smooth card but I just didn't get great results/ I then stamped 2 butterflies and coloured them with Rustic Wilderness and Peacock Feathers DO, I then went in with a Watercolour pencil and added a bit of shading. I stamped the hearts and coloured with the same, I then added Crystal Lacquer (Glossy Accents) to make them stand out a little more, for the sentiments I used Coffee stirrers to stamp ''With Brave Wings She Flies'' and then ''Trust your wings'' I stamped a few ink splats and some text from a stamp, finished the Butterflies with pen nibs. Finished with some Posca pen white ink splats.
I hope that you all have an enjoyable Thursday, hopefully we will be blessed with more glorious Sunshine, boy does it lift your spirits.
Sending Love and hugs to all of you,
