Just a Boy

Morning all, well my sleeping pattern is getting no better, I’m in bed early now, mostly before 10pm that is actually very early for me as I used to struggle to be in bed before 2am, I am waking a number of times during the night and normally wide awake and bushy tailed by 3am and having to force myself back to sleep until around 5.30am, I am absolutely bushed to say the least, it is like walking through a fog.

This morning the whole household was up and having a cuppa by 6.30 and Natalie although still in a lot of pain is looking much better, she is presently as sound as a baby laying on the sofa.

I have started to pack up the Christmas decorations but need his nibs to get it all into the loft for me.

My card today is made using a digi stamp from Spesch stamps

Coloured with Copic sketch markers then teamed with Stampin Up designer papers and the lucious ribbon is from Ribbon Carousel  lurve… her ribbons, most are from Maya Art.

I’m hoping to pop to the local garden centre today as I have had my eyes on a beautiful wire Christmas tree that I’m hoping will now be in the sales, I bought a little pottery nativity from there just before Christmas which I love. So I’ll take Natalie along if she is well enough and we’ll have a coffee while we are there.

Your sleeping pattern of late is just like mine! I've been averaging reading a novel a night! Too bad we're not closer-we could craft and chat together! Glad Natalie is feeling better,too! Blessings, Sharon

Hi Jak, I have been away over Christmas, just back and looking through my emails. Ahhhh what an awful thing to have happened to Natalie, bless her, I am so pleased to see she is finally on the mend. It must have been such a shock to you to see her like that. Please pass on my very best wishes to her, and I wish you and all your family a very Happy and Healty New Year.

Kind regards Lesley xx

wow jak this is my fav card of yours i have to say, the colouring is stunning and i must practice your bow technique as your bow sets the card off a treat. The image is gorgeous unfotunately i had to have a peek at the site and think i may have a new addiction. Good news for my hubby as with being stuck in bed my purse is downstairs and he would have to get it for me so might have to wait a bit before ordering hahaha.

Hope you get some bargains today its a lovely day for it xxx

This is beautiful! I have had the same problems with sleep and recently was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I now have an annoying cpap machine which helps me sleep. Hope your pattern changes!

The sleep pattern thing must be going around because I know exactly what you are talking about. Glad Natalie is doing better. Your card, by the way, is gorgeous! Crafting is such good therapy, isn't it? God bless...

This is brilliant Jak. My son would adore this card (this is how he dresses... but has cropped hair! although he wanted to grow it long).

Glad to hear your daughter is on the mend, enjoy that coffee & fingers crossed you get that tree in the SALE.
