caught napping!

I made another card! This is one of the new LOTV Christmas boys that I ordered ages ago but have only just got around to colouring in - hopefully you will see more of them very soon. I've coloured with my Copics using the BG93, 96 and 99 for the green shades to coordinate with the Papermania papers from last year. I was originally going for a masculine card so just inked the edges of the layers, but then when I'd added the ivy leaves, fronds and swirls it looked a bit naked so I got out the Platinum Stickles and tied a little organza bow. The berries are made with my Waco pearl maker pen and unfortunately some of them have run into each other, but hopefully still look ok.

The Lili of the Valley challenge is an anything goes theme, and over on the Stamptacular Sunday blog it's anything Christmas - perfect!

I'm hoping to be able to get around to catching up with blogs this afternoon. Mum hasn't been too well over the weekend and last night was particularly worrying so I called the doctor in - it seems she may be 'over-medicated' now .. .. I'll have to keep an eye on her over the next few days and see whether stopping a couple of the drugs makes a difference. Next week the District Nurse will come in to check how things are going, and I hope the Cardiac Physiotherapist will call soon as well, so we can start building her strength back up.
