Things are getting desperate

Morning all.  Well, I say morning but my poor, tired, body says that it ought to be bedtime.  What a storm we had at 4.00 this morning.  Temperatures yesterday clipped 32C and a storm was inevitable as it was so sticky and humid.  I woke up to the sound of rain on the conservatory roof and then the light show began.  I have never seen so much lightning in such a short time.  The thunder was pretty loud too!  I came down to check that Vince was ok, and he was, happily snoring in my armchair.  Not sure what time I crawled back into bed but sleep was elusive.  I feel like the proverbial limp lettuce today - and we are supposed to be out for a meal with friends this evening!

Surprisingly for a holiday week, I have done very little crafting so things were getting desperate for something to share with you.  I had a trawl through my folders and found this little card that I made a couple of weeks ago.

This is another of those A Random Fan stamps - it's Birthday Girl
Coloured with a mix of Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos pencils
Not sure what went wrong with her hair but I'm not overly happy with it
Papers are all LOTV/Nitwits
Sentiment is from one of my many clear sets
Gold diamond borders from stash

And that's it.  I really need to get on with something if I want to be able to share with you tomorrow.

Hope your day isn't too sticky.

Hugs Squirrel xx

Adorable card Squirrel - her hair looks fabulous to me.
Thunderstorms were horrendous here too last night and the night before but the air is still heavy today - although it has been pouring it down all morning!!!
Hope you 'perk' up before this evening.
Take care

Gorgeous card Squirrel. I love the image and pretty colours.
We have had 2 nights of thunderstorms here too. My cat is terrified of thunder so I had to sit with him to calm him down! Hopefully tonight will be better.
I hope you have a good evening.

I don't know if it is the way you have her colored or what but she looks like a brunette Alice in Wonderland. Great card though.

And Vince, sleeping through the storm, that's so catlike. If you had been awake you would have had to comfort him but since you weren't he just decided to heck with it and slept the storm through.

Kat W said...

A lovely bright card and your colouring is fab - great hair texture :-)

It seems such a long time since those storms now and it's back to the lovely sun :-D

Big hugs, Kat xx
