Playing with pencils

Sorry I have been MIA so much, I am really struggling with cluster migraines so not been in the mood to do much.  I have been on so many different tablets to try and get them under control I don’t know whether I am coming or going. 

However I found this card that I made last year that is okay to post now.  I coloured the image up with Prismacolor and Polychromo pencils, not a Copic in sight.  I really must get them out more often.  The stamp is by Stampendous, I just love that lil’ birdie.

  3. Hi Bev.
    Georgeous card, as usual. So sorry to hear about your migraines. I used to suffer myself, but pretty much cured taking Topirimate, have you tried those? They are a preventative so you have take them every day but going from 2-4 migraines a week to virtually none its worth it

  18. He is beautiful! I have lots of Prisma's and would love to learn to do more with them! I also suffer from migraines quite often and sometimes they last for a week. I take a daily beta blocker as does my daughter which really seems to have helped lessen the frequency for both of us. I have many things I've learned about helping with pain relief and if you need anyone to talk to about it my email is amycrops2@aol.com.

  24. Gorgeous card, Bev! You colored the beautiful bird wonderfully! Sorry to hear you are still suffering from the cluster migraines. I don't know what you've tried for medication, but I have found great relief using rizatriptan (trade name Maxalt). For me, it relieves the pain, but has little or no side effects. I hope you feel better soon.

  39. Your card is just darling, you are so good!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your migraines, I get them too and they can be so miserable. Besides a preventative medication, I use Imitrex to stop them when I get one. It works great, fast, and is not a narcotic, so no fogginess; usually gone in 20-30 minutes - and no rebound headaches!! Good luck with yours.

  40. I sure hope you can get a handle on those migraines...I have never had the...and even a bad headache for me is so tiring and irritating..can't imagine what you're going through!! You're card is absolutely beautiful..such a vibrant blue colored bird! I could have sworn you used markers. I've used pencils in the past and never achieved that kind of bright pretty coloring!

  42. Love your card. Regarding the migraines which I had for many years, what works is Botox injections, they are now covered for medical reason here in Canada. It cost me 25.00 for one session of about 20 injections on my head which last six months without pain. What a difference it makes. I also get cortisone for arthritis on another part of my head near the neck. I feel like a pin cushion hi hi. I wish you the best, because I know how painful they are.
