BC147 - Chicken Greetings
Annabelle Card found here Hello and Happy Friday! It's been quite a week here (again). Last Sunday my mom wasn't feeling well so she decided to stay home from Church. She said she felt dizzy/light headed and had a heavy pressure on her chest. Needless to say I was pretty worried so I stayed home as well to make sure she was okay since she wouldn't let me take her to the ER. On Monday she decided she needed to see a doctor and I was able to get her in to see her Primary Care doctor. Her Blood Pressure was 180/98! - The doctor said she didn't think it was a problem with her heart but felt that she might have over done things (trying to dig and pull weeds) on Saturday and that the sore muscles and pain from them were causing her BP to go up. She put her on a low dose BP medication to see if that would help. So far she's doing much better but gets tired quite easily still. I've been keeping a close watch on her though as my mom is 81 and I don't want her to over do things again.
Anyway I managed to finish up my card this morning. We had a "Sketch" challenge this week for the Blogger Challenge. I "flipped" the sketch to fit the image I wanted to use. I just love my new Whipper Snapper set, (Beautiful Day) illustrated by the fabulous Anna Wight. I tried to "channel" her coloring muse and don't think I did to bad of a job. The image was colored with Prisma Colored pencils.
My DP is from the SU Designer Sweet Pea pack - It has become a favorite of mine.
I added a bright orange button and teal embroidery thread. I pierced the edges of the tag and distressed them with Close to Cocoa ink (I'm going to miss that color).
The flower was highlighted with some Crystal Glitter (Art Institute)
