I feel like I am chasing my tail this week. After a lovely relaxed week last week … this one has been a doozy! Thanks to all who have left sweet messages for Sandy’s recovery from his ‘nose job’!!! I am absolutely amazed at how easily he came through the general anaesthetic … and how little pain he has had! His nose has a lovely splint … that has to remain there for about a week … but apart from that … there is no discomfort at all! God is so good! A little teary moment … when the nurse came to stick this long ‘tube’ thingy up his nose … reminded me that he hasn’t quite grown up yet! 🙂 But … all in all … it has been quite easy! I think the HARD part … will be trying to keep him from bumping it! It will be quite fragile for at least 2 weeks … and then completely healed in about 6 weeks!
Before I show you my card today … I wanted to share the wonderful creation that arrived in my mail box a couple of days ago! It came from Kasey with a sweet Magnolia stamp! Kasey was re-naming her blog … and asked for some ideas! One of my suggestions was used as a ‘by-line’ for her blog name! So … she sent me a lovely surprise! Sorry … I just realised that I hadn’t got around to editing these photos! I hope you can see the lovely shimmer paint Kasey has used???
I used my Prisma pencils to colour “Skater Ian” in … but as you can see … this was one of my first colouring attempts with the pencils … and the shading leaves a little to be desired! I hope he liked it!? Sandy has a couple of mates over tonight … for a b’day sleepover. I can’t believe my baby is turning 14 tomorrow! Where have those years gone? I feel a little sad! But … he is a great kid … so I am not complaining! I had better go and organised beds … oh … and wrap presents!!
I probably won’t be here tomorrow or Saturday … Sandy’s b’day tomorrow (& Breesitting) … then Bree’s 1st b’day on Saturday … means it will be a busy couple of days! I am gradually learning … I can have a day or 2 off blogging without feeling guilty! See you soon! Have a great weekend! Hugs xxx
