For today I am playing along with Create with Connie and Mary. Their sketch was a fantastic challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
|Very seaworthy card. Watercolor panels, 'worn' entry log, and red lobster|
have all the signs of the Cape Cod style.
|The bottom panel is torn to represent water or waves.|
|Detail showing the lobster. He was stamped using red dye ink|
and then colored using PrismaColor pencils.
I think cutting around this lobster is beyond 'fussy' cutting. Took a long time
but I think the outcome was worth the work.
When I was 36 my life changed. It started with dinner, shrimp alfredo with angel hair pasta. yum! Thirty minutes after dinner I went for a run; it was then I started wheeze and feel very dizzy. I am already diagnosed with asthma and had my inhaler with me. I used it 5-6 times with no relief. Thought I would make my way back home and cool down on our front yard. My son came up to me and said I had a mosquito bite on my face. Strange... It was late August they are usually gone by that time. No sooner did he say that my lips started to swell and those mosquito bits started popping up all over my face. My neighbor, friend, and nurse lives across the street from me and asked what was going on. She said I may be allergic to shrimp. WHAT? So I go my allergist and she confirms that yes I am VERY allergic to anything with a fin. So disappointing.
I know this may sound strange but I was actually sad that I couldn't eat seafood anymore. I mean really sad... I love shrimp, crab, orange roughy, salmon, but especially lobster. I am over it now and have gone on with my life fish free. No biggie. But it just caught me off guard to be seriously sad about SEAFOOD! What gives? I don't know maybe my feeling was a bit 'fishy'.
Well now that my pitty party is over I would like to say thank you so much for stopping by and hearing me cry (for today is National Whining Day). I hope you enjoyed your visit and I invite you to come back for a more uplifting post. Until then take care and see you soon.
All the best,
