Only 2 more days


Only 2 more days for what, I can hear you say, its 2 days until my Aunt goes home and I can return to crafting I am beginning to get withdrawal symptoms, my fingers are itching to get colouring and cutting.  I sound so ungrateful because she has been such a good help with Mum and I have had a much needed rest, and my breathing is almost back to normal now, I do try to live a normal life and not let my Angina affect me but sometimes it catches up with you.

003I made this card for Sketch Saturday Challenge when I came up for a rest and I really enjoyed it, the first card for almost a week.  This cute young man is one of Mo’s Fabulous images and as usual he has been coloured with copics:

Face &  Skin E21, E00, E000, E0000, Dressing Gown B34, B32, B41, PJ’s and Stocking R27, R05, R02, N1, N2.

I have also added Stickles (Stardust) to the top of the stocking and Snowflake, whilst the stickles were still wet I also sprinkled Glamour Dust on them to add even more glitter.  The Gingerbread Men border as punched with a Martha Stewart Border Punch and the Snowflakes are also a MS Punch.  The Papers are from DCVW Christmas Stack.


Hope you all have a fabulous week
