The challenge at the Penny Black Blog this week is to create a card with a inside. Usually I leave them blank to hand write my note, but really there is a whole area begging to be stamped! I think this flower stamp from PB is one of my favorite images to color right now. I used copics in YR15, 17 and 18 and YG03,05 & 07 for the leaves. The little creature ( I think its a bunny?) is colored with Y12, 15 & 17. The inside of the flower has flower soft in earth.Now for the inside:
I stamped and colored with the same copics as above and add the sentiment. This little guy is so cute, I can think of some other cute saying like "hang in there", "or thanks for stopping by". I find that I have tons of sentiments, mostly in clear stamps, but can never find the one I am looking for until after I have the card done. I so need a good organizational system to find my stuff. I have been keeping my desk cleaner, and less cluttered. So I guess one step at a time right?
I have been struggling with nursing my almost 8 month old baby girl. It is so discouraging since although I had issues with the boys they were with me not the baby. I have been concerned that she has not been gaining weight and when I took her back to the Dr. Monday she actually lost an ounce. So she has weighed the same at almost 5 months that she does at 8 months. She is growing slightly on her length and head circumference. The odd thing is she appears hydrated, with enough wet diapers, happy, meeting her milestone, already crawling, sitting up, etc. The only time she fusses is during nursing, I am starting to suspect I may not have enough supply, so today I am off to find the herbs I read about online. I am so frustrated and driving my DH crazy with my worry and neurotic behavior. I have always been determined to nurse the babies and believe absolutely it is the best thing I can do for them. So before I give up, I have to exhaust all my option. Thanks for listening : ) Hope you have a great day!
