I was supposed to be going to stay with Mum for a few days, but yesterday I crashed and burned big time and kept bursting into tears. I am so frustrated at not having the physical energy to do what needs to be done around the house and garden, then the brain can't remember the simplest of words and filling in those bl*****y probate forms becomes a nightmare. Mum seems to be coping quite well, better than me in a lot of ways, so I've reluctantly agreed to staying home until I'm feeling better. I feel really guilty about it - and it will mean being strict on myself, no gallivanting about to meet friends and limiting my time on the pc as well as no late night crafting .. .. life stinks!
So here's another of the cards I made at the weekend. This one is the Frosty Snow Boy and I've kept things nice and simple with just a piece of soft snowflake patterned paper and pale blue mats. The flowers are Marianne diecuts topped off with a pearl and to finish I added the pearly stars and the spotty ribbon tied in a bow. I scribbled down the Copic pen colours I used for this one too .. .. B21, 23, 24 and 26 for his coat, hat and scarf with BV01, 02 and 04 for the contrast colour. The little penguin is coloured with BV20, 23, 25 and 29 plus YR21 and 24 for his feet and beak and on the snow boy's nose. I've used a little C0 to shade the snowman blended out with a 0, although that is impossible to see in the picture! The background haze is created with B000 and B0000.
Moving Along With The Times blog theme is for Christmas in July, while the Winter Wonderland blog challenge is to avoid red and green, so here's my entry for them both.
