Good Morning Ladies,
A very quiet day here, I didn't manage to get out of bed in the morning, the night was rough, the antibiotics are exacerbating the symptoms of my AF etc, with my heart racing I was so hot it was unbearable so I was laying with nothing over me, I just tossed and turned most of night, I think I must have fallen asleep around 4 30am, Paul bought me tea and toast at 7am, which I was so grateful for as I do prefer to have something to eat with my tablets. I was then up and about until the girls left for work, (Paul left a 7am), after they left I went and laid on the bed and must have fallen asleep and I woke and and felt disoriented, I couldn’t that it was 12.15pm, Milo had tucked himself into the back of my knees bless him, I felt bad disturbing him. I guess my body really needed that sleep!! It wasn't long before Paul was home, we had lunch and then I went and sat at my desk to make a card, I was inspired by a card in a magazine, I just changed up the products.
So for today's 'Inlaid Snowflake' card I took a piece of smooth watercolour card, spritzed it with water and then sprinkled on Blue Brusho, then I spritzed again, you just need to spritz until you like how it looks, its so easy to over do it. (I did try all of the blue Brusho powders before deciding on this one as the other two had other colours mixed in, I was wanting it to look like a sky) .
I dried the background slightly and then picked some snowflake dies to add randomly. I die cut the background and layered onto a slightly darker blue background, I then used the same dies to die cut some glitter card and paper pieced them back into my brusho background, they look so much better than being stuck on to the surface of the card, although piecing all of the tiny bits was a bit tedious. It also took me longer as I was either shivering or sweating, I added the snowflake background onto a bigger white background, adding the sentiment so that it was off the page, I also liked the idea of mixed font sentiments for a change. The final finishing touch for my 'Inlaid Snowflake card' was a few sequins in different shades of blue to give a little sparkle.
I was pleased that I pushed myself to make a card, I did go for a lie down when I had finished though 😅.
I hope that you all have a good day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
