Love Bears.

I've been waiting a while for a stamp order to arrive, finally it's here so I've had a play with one of the new stamps! The stamp is from the 'Forever Friends' range from DoCrafts in the UK, I've been coveting these for a while and at last they're available here in Australia!

I've used this week's Bling Challenge from Annabelle Stamps Blog, a nice and easy sketch this week. It's also prize week at Annabelle Stamps, you have until Friday next week to get your entry in.

I coloured my cute bears with Copic Markers, hopefully I'm getting a little better at shading the colours. The Designer Papers are from a Heidi Grace pack, I've added some hot pink jumbo ric-rac, a button and the bling is some Rose Sprinkles from Annabelle Stamps.

Just on a personal note, I've been having some side-effects from my chemo tablets ie. dry skin on my hands and feet, which turned into really red, sore feet...felt like I had blisters! The problem is easy fixed with lots of moisturizer, but I ended up straining a tendon in my right foot while applying it.....ouch! It swelled up and I've been hobbling around for the past week. I can't do much about it except rest it, so I'm a bit annoyed that I can't go for my daily walk or practice my Tai Chi at the moment. Our poor doggie, Daisy also had to go the vet's for surgery to remove 2 large mammary tumours. We were a bit worried as she is getting on in years and thought she might not survive the anaesthetic, but she has coped remarkably well and seems to be well on the mend!

OK, that's it from me, hope you like my card today and thanks for stopping by.

Oh my gosh, I've heard some types of chemo can do that. Maybe applying the lotion at night with socks, etc. will help. Your card is so adorable and pretty too, Lyn.
