Hi everyone, it's been a bit of a tiring week this week having spent all one night in A&E with my Mum following yet another fall. I feel so sorry for the staff at her nursing home because they do their best to make sure she's safe but short of strapping to her bed (or chair) they just cannot stop her from trying to move about unaided and twice this week she has got out of bed after they had tucked her in for the night and then been found on the floor at their next check on her an hour later. She's not broken anything this time but she's so badly bruised her hip her mobility has gone again. We can only hope they can get her back to how she was a few weeks ago.
At least I have a couple of cards to blog that I made for friends birthdays last week!
This first one uses my favourite script stamp in the background overstamped with a gorgeous bluebell, both stamps from PaperArtsy Hotpicks sets and the sentiment is a Lin Brown one from a set of her Eclectica stamps for PaperArtsy. I also used some of the new Fresco Finish paints to colour and when dry I painted over the image with PaperArtsy Metallic Glaze which I think you can see on the second photo if you click on it.
This second card uses the Stampin Up Lotus Blossom overstamped on the PaperArtsy script using Versamagic inks and a Chocolate Baroque sentiment.
Once again, these are my variations of a card I found on Pinterest which gave me inspiration but I can't seem to get a link to post here without joining some sort of group so my apologies to whoever designed the original. Such a lovely elegant design I think.
I have a few birthdays coming up in the month of April too but most of them are for males so I will have to find a different style of inspiration, lol!
I hope you all have a lovely long holiday weekend and I'm hoping for a bit of craftroom R&R in between hospital visits.
