A Girl with Attitude and a Watercolour Card

Hi there!

Gosh we've had some rain here I tell 'ya... Hailstones as well! But personally I've enjoyed this summer... The garden has never looked to colourful and we had some lovely days...
I'm feeling better too and the medication my doctor gave me for my eczema is working...I haven't said much about it but since June I have really struggled with blisters everywhere and burning skin that keeps me awake night after night... Now if they could get rid of the sciatica I would be like a spring chicken Lol!

On the downside my lovely aunt is in hospital with heart problems but I got to speak to her this morning and she is happy and upbeat. At least I know she is being looked after where she is.

So I have a crocheted girl to share with you...


 I'm trying to add a little character to the faces and this one turned out to be a girl with attitude rather than the cutie I was going for Lol! It's a learning curve...


 I also have a card done with some watercolours and odd bits I had laying about



Well, if the rain holds off hubby and I are going to take a drive and have lunch... maybe even a little retail therapy...
 And just before I finish, take a look at my 2 cats... Bunk beds!


I hope you have a great weekend

~ Ros ~

Sorry to hear about your on going health problems but glad you are feeling a little better. Had a chuckle at the bunk beds and your adorable cats x Love the crocheted girl and her attitude...sounds good to me. One gorgeous card Ros, the prettiest of colours and the elements are fabulous. Soft vellum, pretty water colouring and colours and then the double heart with a little bling too. So love this one Ros x

Oh how adorable--your crocheted doll & your kitty cats! What a picture with the bunk beds--made me smile big time, Ros! How about you ship me the card & I'll tell hubby I made it--just kidding! It does remind me I need to make an anniversary card pretty soon & yours is a stunner that would be perfect! No more rain around here--just one day with a few hours, but until we see the total eclipse we don't want any clouds! So cool that we're in the totality zone & won't even have to brave the crowds as we'll just sit on our deck!

Forgot to say that I hope your aunt does well & can soon go home. Always a worry when the elderly have issues like that. Really great you're getting relief from the exzema & so sorry the darn sciatica is still a problem!

I am a fan of your crocheting projects and your card made my jaw drop:)
I LOVE that photo of Ginger and Missy!
It's raining here too and it's chilly. I hope you are able to go out for a drive and have lunch somewhere ( are you going to Bunbury?? )
I hope your aunt will be back home soon and that there won't be any serious health issue
Have a lovely day!
XXXXX

Ha! Maybe just a teensy little bit of attitude, but it looks good on her. I think she's totally adorable! You're so good with the crochet. Love her hair and the lace and flower. So cute! I'm sorry to hear your aunt is in the hospital. I hope she's okay. I know how much you adore her. Gorgeous card with your odd bits laying about. Sheesh! I should have such odd bits. They came together beautifully with your expertise at card making. Love the kitty photo, too! Seems I remember Ginger cat wasn't too crazy about the newcomer, but the bunk beds let them be close without having to look at each other. What a great photo! I wouldn't mind having some rain for the garden. Our water bill was way too much last month! Finally, Ros, you've been suffering with your eczema and I'm sorry about that. I didn't realize it was so painful. It's very good to hear the medication is working!

The doll is so sweet that it has to be a perfect present for your aunt! And the card is great, just wonderful.

Wow..a post filled with all kinds of beauties, Ros. Sorry to hear about your eczema. No fun, but happy to hear the medication is helping. Hope your aunt gets to go home soon too.

Your girl with an attitude is adorable. Do you think the yarn might be making your eczema worse or causing your problem? I can knit with wool or cotton, but not acrylic..I get eczema from the acrylic.

All your critters have been so cute. Be careful about carpel tunnel too. Another thing I learned from knitting too tight and too much..lol! NO issues from stamping though:-)

LOVE your watercolored background. Did you use DOX drying between layers? Love to know more. Beautiful design using all your scraps.

Then there are your beautiful sweet and very content cats......Again...a fun post filled with treasures!

Hugs...

Lol, the cat-bunk-bed is so funny! I'm sorry to hear your aunt is not doing well. And you were in such pain, I'm glad that the medication is helping. You had a lot on your plate, take care dear. Your girl with attitude is beautiful, wow! And so is your card! Sending you big hugs xx

Love your cats! I am in awe of all your crocheted creations - and your card is absolutely gorgeous, too. How is your aunt now? I hope much better? And I hope you will soon feel much better, too.

A fun fun post! Adorable little miss attitude doll, and such pretty colors, too! I am in awe of your crocheting a sI took a knitting class with my daughter and flunked...lol (that's all I am saying)! The card of course is garogeous as always, so soft and pretty. Those kitties made me smile, what 'purr-ty' babies they are! Hope you get all your health issues resolved, but know that you are not alone, I never knew that so many body parts could fall apart at once on me, or I would of refused to get older...lol!!

Tracy said...

Your watercolors are always a delight and I don't think she has an attitude. I like her eyelashes. :-) So happy your meds are working for you.
