You may remember my LONG LOST BFF Cathy who I hooked up with last year. Well it was her birthday on Friday and she is a true DIVA! Always looking hot, trendy, getting her fingers and toes all looking pretty....hair and makeup perfect! So NOT me! I'll admit, I am a little obsessive about my hair, but nailpolish, NOT...and makeup...OMG....ONLY if I don't want to scare anyone. Do you know that the vast majority of people in my office work long hours for 9 days straight to get every other Friday off....me...not so much...I work 5 day a week, every week but every Friday since there is hardly anyone in the office I use it as an excuse to ditch half of my makeup routine because I probably won't see anyone anyway! LOL!!!!!
Sorry, see, I digress already! Back to the card. This is a Mo Manning image called Diva available in rubber at Stamping Bella. She was stamped with memento ink on Bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with a combo of copics and prisma pencils. These are the copics I used:
E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20, RV11
R0000, 000, 00, 01, 21, 30, 32, 34, 85
E40, 41, 42, 43, 21, 13, 15, 44
E31, 33, 34, 35, 37, 59, N0, 2, 5
WOW! I hope nobody asks me where I used the colours, because honestly, I coloured this image several weeks ago and I no longer have a clue! Which is one of the reasons why I often hesitate to list the colours used for fear someone will ask me specifics that I no longer recollect. (it's probably an age thing, but I'll call it artistic freedom cause it sounds better!)
Did you all enjoy the video last week? OMG! I HATE the sound of my voice but I think everyone who hears themselves says that. I can't thank Ebru enough for putting that together!
On a personal note, remember the back of mine that went out a few weeks ago! Well...massage, chiropractic treatment, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory, pain killers, x-rays, and a lot of whining has uncovered my problem....again...an age thing! I have significant disk degeneration between C5-6 prominent on the right side which is pinching the nerve that runs down my arm and into my hand (YUP...THAT arm)....aka....arthritis in the neck! I kinda wanna scream ENOUGH ALREADY....but I am a patient person, and will wait this out just like I did with my broken wrist and with therapy (and drugs) I am told I will be pain free in a FEW MONTHS! ....ya, you heard that right....in a FEW MONTHS! The good news is that prior to having the spasm in my back I had NO pain at all in my arm or hand, so once this settles I have been told that it will bother me from time to time but that is about the worst of it! I should be back to my normal 51-yr-old self in no time!
Next post....I'll tell you about my new pillow!
