Live with Promise!

Good Afternoon Everyone, and I hope all is well with you and that your day is going well.
I'm having a quiet day today, just pottering around the house and probably a wee bit of crafting later today.  I wasn't feeling too well yesterday, and had to go to the doctors, and it is possible that I have a hiatus hernia, not all that serious in itself, but so uncomfortable and a bit painful at times. Anyway, blood tests next week and than back to GP for results and what the treatment will be.
Of course carrying too much weight does not help, but weight loss is not a quick fix, if only, but enough of that, I'm enjoying a quiet day and Alistair managed to get himself off for a walk.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on yesterday's card, you are all very encouraging and kind.

Here is my share for today;
I've used this beautiful stencil by the Crafters Workshop and sparkled up with Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts.  What an easy card to make, just takes a bit of time for the sparkle to dry.
I matted on to a lovely coppery glitter card after having inked around the edges with ginger ink and that it's it.
I really liked doing this one and might invest in more stencils.

Off to forage for some lunch now, and I do mean forage, Teallach has more food in his cupboard than we do, must to a shop but hate food shopping.

See you another day,

Absolutely stunning Kate, I just LOVE it.
I thought it was a stamp when I saw it on my Reading List.
I have a few stencils I bought last time we were in Birmingham ... never out of their packets.
Sorry you are not feeling too good.
Once they get your results hopefully there will be something they can give you to help.
John has a Hernia, had it for quite a few years. Takes one pill every morning and that's it.

Love this very sparkly card Kate. The sparkle medium is a gorgeous colour and what a fabulous stencil, love it.
Hope you don't have to wait too long for your results and keep a bottle of Gaviscon by you, it does wonders in helping with the heartburn pain of an hiatus hernia until they can prescribe your medication.
Take care,
Lorraine

Hey Kate! I am not too good with stencils but your sure have made a beautiful card using your stencil!
I too have a hiatus hernia - I just live with it - sometimes it is uncomfortable when I am eating but the discomfort goes away quite readily. Mine showed up in an endoscopic procedure to my stomach. I don't have really any treatment.
Getting older is so much fun!!

Such a gorgeous card Kate, I love the colours and elegant design.
Sorry to hear you are feeling unwell. I take one tablet a day to treat my hiatus hernia which works most of the time. I hope you find something to help you too.

Hi Kate,
what a fab card.
I love that sentiment, and your fab glittery design.
Sorry to hear you are not well.
I do hope all gets resolved soon, and the treatment makes you more comfortable.
I too hate food shopping.
To me it's put into the trolly, then take it out, and put in the conveyer belt, then back in bags in trolly again, and off to the car to empty the trolly yet again, and then wait your not finished, as the it's home and empty the car, and pack away all that shopping into cupboards or fridges, and freezers.
Pity we have to eat as this time could be used for crafting. LOL. and the money we would have would be good too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
