Oh dear, pneumonia!
Hello friends! I feel a little cheated as I was feeling quite a bit better and my coughing had reduced. However, the results of the CT chest scan show an infection in my right lung that appears to be pneumonia so … I’ve been back to the GP today and will be on medication a bit longer. Thank you to all those who’ve been praying for me or sending me best wishes; I’m sleeping better and there’s definitely less wheezing – this is good!
I’ve already used the turtle and giraffe stamps from Back On Your Feet to create two get well cards:
And I’ve now completed a card design featuring this very cute sloth:It’s a perfect picture of what I’ve been doing for the last few days!I
The Woodland Embossing Folder gives a fantastic tree background for the sloth and the leaf punch makes perfect leaves from Shaded Spruce cardstock. After I stamped the sloth in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured it with Stampin’ Up!’s alcohol-based markers I cut it out with the large oval die from the Stitched Shapes Dies. It’s hard to see, but there’s some Wink of Stella on the bandage:
I’ve used Glossy Accents again (the 3-Dimensional, water-based, clear gloss medium), this time on the sloth’s eyes and mouth:
I haven’t added a sentiment yet but thought **SIGH…** would be perfect for how I’ve been feeling! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today and I hope this cheers you up if you’ve been unwell and, as always, gives you a little inspiration! Megan xo
