Good Evening All, I hope it's been a good day for you whatever you've been doing.
I've not been doing much, I stood in the doorway of the spare bedroom and couldn't think where to start with the sorting out, so I turned about, made a coffee and picked up my Kindle, and tried not to feel guilty, as Scarlett O'Hara says.."tomorrow is another day"!
Thank you all so much for the lovely remarked on my previous card, and the good wishes for my diabetic check up. Not so bad as I thought it would be, my HbA1c which is a blood test which take in BG for the last three months was up a bit, but there was no surprise there. I will have to try and cut way down on carbs, but not easy on our Western diet, but I managed before, so hoping I can do it again.
Not great weather today, rain off and on, so it was a day for crafting,
I bought a few digital images from AuroraWings, and this is the first I've coloured. I love Mermaids and this image especially. I've coloured her with a mixture of SN Aqua Pens, Copic and Prismacolour Pencils. I also used small stamps from CB Mermaid Queen Stamp set, DI for the background blended with the new Creative Expression's Smoothies,(need a bit of practise),
CC Sentiment, Hobby House Pearls, Glamour Dust and Liquid Pearls
I stayed away from ribbons and bows as I wanted the image to be the focal point.
I'm quite pleased at the outcome, I think.
Alistair is watching the footy, and I'm wondering if I should do any more card making, I've been asked to make a wedding card, but I'm struggling with getting a design worked out, but I've still time. I sometimes find that my approach to making commissioned cards is a bit like when I was studying and had to get an essay produced, lots of mental activity going on, but nothing being put down on paper.....till the last day, and then the pressure. No, I've decided to read instead..
So I will leave you now, and hope that everyone is well, but if not I wish you a speedy recovery.
Thanks for popping in and see you soon,
