It's Snowing

Evening peeps

My son has had a major meltdown at uni today, so I have spent most of the afternoon on the phone trying to calm him down.  I think it has been building up over the last couple of weeks, he is currently a Deputy Stage Manager on a play that the uni is down and from what I can understand, the Director is very rude to him and the rest of the cast and crew.  My son has a habit of taking on everyone else's problems, but then lands up stressing himself out.  On top of that, he caught his Housemate self harming the other night as well, so he is worrying about that as well.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, he has taken a comment the wrong way and instead of talking to his tutor about it, he has lost his temper and broken a chair.  It has taken over an hour to talk him into sorting it out with his tutor.  Trying to explain that losing your temper only makes thing worse was hard work.


Anyway, my card tonight is part of another order.  The digital stamp is called Winter Wryn from Tiddly Inks and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Pink card stock
Patterned papers
Double sided adhesive sheets
Spellbinders Scallop Edge die set
Die'sire Snowing Is Falling die set
Pearl snowflake
Crystal Glamour Dust glitter

Santa Is Coming

Evening peeps

Well that turned out to be a better day at work then I thought it would be.  I spent a good half hour chatting to my Manager about what we can do to turn the Counters department round.  Because of my experience and closeness to the colleagues, she has asked if I am happy to get involved and to coach the current Section Leader.  At least now it will get my something else to focus on, I get bored very easy.

Winter Teddy Bear

Evening peeps

Well today at work was interesting.  After all the disagreements yesterday, the colleague at the centre of it all went sick for two weeks with stress.  She always has to make herself the centre of attention.  I know full well what stress is, having lived with it and there is no way on this earth that she is showing shows of stress.  I know it sound harsh, but it is so easy these days to play the stress card.


Anyway, my card tonight is one part of an order from a colleague at work.  The digital stamp is called Snuggle Christmas from Di's Digi Stamps and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.
