New Artist Coming Soon To Crafts & Me

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Hope you all have had a lovely weekend. I'm sorry I've been missing in action but I've got a very ill daughter at the mo she has been poorly all weekend & we've had the doctor out twice since last night. She has a really bad chest infection yet again & its really affecting her breathing they were going to admit her to hospital today but luckily the doctor who came has been few times before & knows me & Craig can handle a lot of things & we have quite a bit of med equipment to be able to look after her well. So she is on special inhalers with masks, antibiotics & steroids & hopefully in the next 48 hours she will improve. I have cards that I made last week I've just not had time to even use the internet. I just about remembered to email my candy winner her voucher on Saturday lol.

Anyway I'm popping on quickly to show you a show sample that was made for CRafts & Me store using a stamp from a new artist that Teresa has brought to her store. Now remember these samples are smaller than average & have to be flat.........yes which I hate!!!!!!!!!!
This is called 'Love Letter' have you seen how long her hair is.......OMGoodness!!

I have of course coloured her with copics & I paper pieced her dress using the same paper I did for the card. The paper is a digital one from Etsy & to give off a different contrast I printed off some of the paper onto cream thin card for her dress just so it would give a slightly darker colour. Everything else is from my stash.
The pearl bows & heart is from a shop on Ebay.

Well its a quick post from me I'm afraid I'm off to check Natalie's Blood Pressure & SAT level & then cook tea, homemade lasagne tonight.
I will try my best to get around to visit you all but it will be short comments & I'm not promising anything. I should have gone docs myself today as I've got a huge abscess in my left cheek.......when I smile only half my mouth smiles I look like I'm having a stroke lol. It has provieded a bit of humour to the family over the weekend & we have needed it tbh lol. Natalie tho comes first tho & compared to how she is suffering my abscess really is nothing & there will be plenty time go docs after.

Thank you so much for stopping by big hugs to you all xoxoxox

Your card is darling! Her hair looks like my youngest daughter, all the way down past her bum!

KraftyKoolKat said...

I am so sorry to hear Natalie is still so very poorly. Give her a very gentle hug from me. She is in the best of hands with you and Craig and although the hospital would take care of her they haven't got the time and compassion that you will have with her. I wish her better soon.

I am also sorry that you are poorly, you are probably run down sweetie as you have been pulled in all directions lately.

You card is gorgeous sweetie even though you have had to make it flat.
