Oops, I'm really late tonight with my post. School is back now and I'm trying to get back into a routine but I'm still finding it difficult to get myself to bed, at least when I get there I'm out like a light! Also, as you might know I've been off work with stress for the last ten weeks or so. I feel in a better place now so I'm going back to work the week after next and will gradually build my hours back up to full time over the next 6 weeks after that. I'm starting cognitive behavioural therapy tomorrow and will have another 4 sessions after that to help provide me with coping mechanisms for stressful situations. I'm a bit nervous about this but I'm sure I'll be fine once I'm there and if it helps it will be worth it. If I'm honest it wasn't just work that was the problem it was just the straw that broke the camel's back. I've been under a fair bit of stress for the last couple of years since my elderly aunt that we share a house with took a stroke. We have always been very close especially since my mum passed away. She's made a reasonably good recovery but she is now much more dependant on us. I think all the emotions around that brought back memories of my mum as she died of a stroke when I was in my early teens. Between that and problems at work things just got too much for me to cope with. Sorry for waffling on tonight but I feel the time is right to get it off my chest. Onwards and upwards!
So, eventually on to my card...
I fell in love with this LOTV Halloween stamp as soon as I saw it and I'm so glad I bought it as I see it is now out of stock.
I've coloured the image with Promarkers. I think this is the first time I've coloured an image so there's no white background. I've mounted the image on to some purple glitter card cut with an X-cut die. The star die is also from X-cut and the cobwebs are cut with a die from La-La Land. The papers are all quite old ones from Graphic 45 and the round sentiment is one I've cut from the reverse side of one of the papers. I've added foam letters, ribbon and gems to finish my card.
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate all the comments you leave.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
