just like I promised...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...we are definitely getting warmer weather now as my spiders are out again...uuuurrrrrggghhhh...its ok I wont post anymore photos of them and the two that were invading last weren't quite as big as the last ones I posted...and they are definitely not as big now they are squashed, I'm sorry I just cant pick them up and put them outside, I just cant go near them they make me shudder...I had one of those eyes attached to my bum days yesterday, I even fell asleep while colouring in my office chair, mind it is comfortable, I woke up with my paintbrush still poised to paint too lol, mind I did have a very stiff neck...right now my card for today, as promised here's a new artist I found called May Green and her shop is MayzyArt, isn't this gorgeous creature just wonderful and she is a dream to colour too...she is called Looks Like Rain Xandra, isn't she brilliant I love her, see what happens when you go surfing you never know what you will find do you...I coloured her with distress inks and I could resist a bit of glitter, she looks like a glittery girl doesn't she...the fab papers I chose for her are from K&Co Julianne 6x6 paper pad which is back in stock at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I cut out loads of the flowers from the paper for embellishments...I finished with a ribbon and some seam binding...the fab sketch is from Tuesday Morning sketches challenge and I'm also entering this for the My Mums Craft Shop challenge and the Craft Room Challenge...I'm having another crafting day today hopefully without the closed eyelids lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and when your surfing keep your eyes open you never know what you might find

Elaine said...

Thank you Mina for your lovely message on my “Monday,Blues post ” when I went to look after Mum and Dad . It was so kind of you and I was overwhelmed by your kindness.
Dad is much better now, he has a recurring abscess , but a course of anti-biotics seems to do the trick. Sadly Mum had a massive stroke 4 years this May and will never be fine, she is unable to move or speak , but she can communicate by facial expressions, Dad is her carer , she has 4 x2 carers visits per day. So when Dad gets poorly I have to step to care for them both. Thank you again for your kindness. I am now back and on track . Hugs Elaine

Elaine said...
