CCAYR Midway Reminder....Fussy and Fancy

Good Evening Blogging Friends, I hope you are all well and have had a good day.

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my Michael Powell card yesterday, very much appreciated.

This is just going to be a very quick post as Alistair is wanting on to the computer to email his pals about the next trip away, the man never stops.  How ever he did fore go his cycle today as he came with me to the eye clinic and we were so long, what a busy department, that it was too late to go out, and now it looks like it will downpour.

My eyes are fine, thankfully, I had them scanned and although there is damage nothing to worry about, and the consultant thought that the Diabetic Dept. were erring on the side of caution in referring me to him.  What a time we were in there though over 3 hours and half the time my vision was so blurred because of the eyedrops I couldn't read. poor Alistair fell asleep, it was so hot.

Here is my inspiration piece for CCAYR;
I've used, Chloe Stamp
Wow, Silver Embossing Powder
De'sire Sentimentals, Crafter's Companion Sentiment
Blue and Silver Glitter card
SB Corners from Frosty Forms
Tonic Snowflake Punch
Blue Gems from my stash

These Chloe stamps are just wonderful and it only took me 4 goes with the embossing to get it right, I'm getting better.
Anyway folks, why not join us at , do pop over and see the other DT creations, there is still time to get your entry in.
That's all folks, have a good evening.
Hugs Kate x

A pretty card Kate but what I am going to celebrate is you good report from the eye doctor. Good Fathers, three hours - that in it's self would be tiring. I know you have to feel relived!
