*I Can See!!*

I was worried I wouldn't be able to see this afternoon... I had an appointment at the eye clinic today to get an ultrasound done on my left eye and I was under the impression they'd be using the dilating eye drops.  I was happy to find out that they wouldn't be.  I ended up with an ultrasound on each eye that involved the numbing eye drops, a plastic cup like thing and a lot of gel.  It wasn't fun, but it wasn't too bad.

My eyes feel like sandpaper right now... making it a little tough to want to keep them open.  I see a cold compress and some eyedrops in my very near future!

I managed to play a little last night and again this morning.  I'm trying to get in a little bit of papercrafting when I am feeling up to it, or when the mood strikes since I've done so little so far this year.  I miss it when I don't craft.

So, let me share with you the card I made this morning before I went off to the eye clinic.

This card is for the Everything Old is New Again Challenge that Allison and Sue have been hosting for the past few weeks.  The challenge was to use Prima flowers along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  I hope we didn't have to use an old stamp... I hope that the Primas I bought about 5 years ago will be enough!
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  all PaperTreyInk
*Patterned Paper:  Magenta
*Tools:  Big Shot; Sizzix tri-dots embossing folder; Sizzix Daisies #2 die (Stampin' Up!); D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
*Embellishments:  Kaiser Rhinestones; Prima flowers
*Challenges:  EONAC6; MMSC41

And for those still following the shattered wrist saga, Bruce is doing somewhat better today.  Still in pain, but it's coming along I think.  I've banished him to resting for most of the day, which is what I think his body needs.

I am off to find my eye drops......  enjoy your day!

Love this card! But girl, you guys need to not leave the house it sounds like! Boy...bad news all around...I was at the hospital for the last 2 days staying with a friend who lost her baby (only 2 mths along) but had a tubal pregnancy. Friend of the familys son died in an avalanche in BC. Another friend got bad news on her Mom too! I mean come on, 2011 was suppose to be a great year hey! Thinking of you!

I really, really like this one Nancy. Glad to hear that Bruce is feeling a bit better. Sorry to hear about the ultrasound...that does not sound like fun at all!! Was this for your headaches? Never heard of anyone getting one of these before. Hope the eyes are feeling better today though. :0)

I hope your eyes are better soon! Love your card though, the colors are just great.
