How is your week going? I am still in the thick of invigilating. Next week is half term so we have a week off.
I am sorry that I am not around as much as usual. Some of you might know that my mum was taken into hospital last week with a major infection. She also has mobility issues and these a being assessed now. This leaves my dad at home on his own. A few days ago he tried to visit my mum on his own. Since my dad was ill last summer he gets very confused. The carers were worried when he wasn't home so the police were involved. Luckily one of the neighbours found him walking home. We are not sure how long he was out but it was such a relief when he was found. A close neighbour has stepped up to take dad to the hospital to visit my mum.
Here is another of cards I made with the Lakeside Clear Stamp set from Beccy's Place. I wanted to have a play with a different type of background.
For the background I used the Caught in Crystal Technique that Sue Wilson uses. On her blog there is a page dedicated to this technique.
This is the stamp set it is available HERE. These images are also available as digital images.
I stamped the image with Watering Can Archival ink to stamp the image and the sentiment. Then I used watercolour paints to colour the image and to create a background. I used the Double Pierced Rectangle to create a frame for the image.
This card will stay in my stash until I decide who to send it to.
