Added Saturday 15 Oct: I am so excited to get picked as a “TOP 3” for this card for the Simply Stampin’ Sketch challenge! A big thank you hug to the DT girls for choosing my card!
Hi there bloggies!
A great double challenge today! I took one look at this Simply Stampin’ sketch and thought “yikes” … I don’t tend to do that many layers … BUT … when I started work on it … it all fell into place quite easily and I wondered why I don’t do more??? So … I was kinda tickled with the result for the sketch!
I had also seen the latest Hand Stamped Sentiment Challenge … and once I had chosen this sweet DSP and “pink” seemed to be happening … I knew it would also be perfect for the “Think Pink” challenge! I thought the “Perk Up!” phrase was also a good choice for such an important theme!
Well … I have been avoiding my DSP lately! I am not sure why??? Just lazy perhaps??? But … after making this little cutie … I am moving my paper stack onto my desk … so my laziness doesn’t stop me from using it any more!!! 😉 😀 What is wrong with me??? 🙄 Did you notice the shimmery paint on the heart & images? Here is a closer look … Apologies for photo quality. For some reason … I couldn’t get the white looking white without getting that glarey look. (How do you spell glarey???) I am little annoyed with myself … because I wanted to add a little pink ribbon breast cancer type bow to the heart & cup … and totally forgot! So … You can just imagine that there! 😉
I am slowly but surely getting on top of this work thingy! It would be more helpful to Gav if I was able to have access to his software to help with typing up patient reports … but at the moment it isn’t possible. Once Gav works this out … I will have plenty more to do … but for a little while … I am coping quite well with the extra load! I guess part of that is also … an easing of things with my mum … who is doing really well. She still has a way to go … but things are definitely improving.
