Wax Crayon Resist & Dog Tired!

Wow. Friday again!
This card was one I did for the demonstration at Happy Stampers. So incredibly simple. Not even one teeny embellishment. Letting the stamp sing for a change.
This involves the easiest brayering you’ll ever do and you can’t go wrong with it.
The stamp is a fab set from Hero Arts. You can add sentiments in the ‘page’ that’s sticking out the typewriter.

Well I’m’fraid it’s a short one again. This week I’ve been burning the candle at both ends. See, I forgot.
Forgot that half term was coming.
I’d nicely organised my work schedule not taking into account the fact there’d be 5 littlish people there too.
So umm.. Some deadlines just sneaked up on me. I was tempted not to bother going to bed at all.
Thought better of it.
Do I look radiant and have just brushed off the lack of sleep?
Are you kidding?
I couldn’t do it when I was 24 and looking after a newborn. I definitely couldn’t breeze through when I had 5 kiddos aged 7 and under (3 who were 19 months and under! Ha!).
So I certainly can’t do it now.
I must have looked so deathly that I was utterly memorable when visiting my lovely local post office.
I’d chatted briefly with the assistant explaining that I’d only just finished the projects at 3am ( gulp!).
She happened to see me again 2 days later ( which happened to be this morning).
‘You got more commissions?’
“Oh yes” I laughed.
“I managed to finish these at 2am’
“Well you’re getting faster then”.
She actually remembered our conversation.
Think I must start making an effort not to look so badly memorable.
Think more makeup may be required.
Makeover? Any colour me beautiful ladies in the house?

Well, have more work to prepare. I’m at Abakhan, Liverpool tomorrow doing a Big Shot demonstration from 9:30-11:30 and then some 3D projects from 12-3. Do and come and say hi. I just might need keeping awake!

See you when I’ve had a good night’s sleep!! xx

    This is a fabulous card … It doesn’t look simple! Oh I feel for you not getting your sleep … when you are as old as me you will be wise enough not to take on too much (yeh, says me who often works all day and evening!)
