Stripes and Butterflies ...
Hello lovely friends and visitors
I hope your week is going well – it’s nearly gone again!!!
Thank you for the lovely comments on my recent creations
You are all very kind and I really do appreciate you
Made it to my appointment yesterday and things are changing which I am very, very happy to say lol! Never talk to the organ grinder’s monkey just go straight to the organ grinder lol! Now that’s another story for a different day lol! I have another card to show you today and here it is …
Quite a simple card with the butterflies being the stars!
I think I may need some more Gelato's! I'll experiment with my other mediums first to see
if I can create this soft look before buying new goodies!
A final look
I’ve been mopping up the ‘waster/left over ink off the Splodgeaway mat again, using snippets, left overs and freebies makes me feel good and sort of virtuous! Now I know it’s not actually virtuous but it’s just the way it makes me feel sometimes lol. I am still sorting through my stash right now with, at present, two largish boxes for the after school kids club at our local school and I have no doubt whatsoever that there will be another box to go to them soon too. I’d planned to drop the stamps and consumables before they closed for the summer but I forgot lol!!
A very quick post as I can’t type for long because of my appointments yesterday. Why oh why do they have to hurt you before agreeing that yes your RA is active and attacking your joints – for goodness sake I already knew that! And in a week or two I start a new drug regimen which I hope will not be as completely debilitating as the last lot – fingers crossed.
Have yourself a fabulous day dahlings and remember to smile, be happy, laugh and cuddle your nearest and dearest as the lovely Darnell says life is short so enjoy it! O err I must be in a reflective mood after that appointment!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment
I really do appreciate it Thank You
I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week
