Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week I am your host and my theme is "White on White' which is not just a challenge for all of you, it's also one for me as I find this style of card so difficult to make! This weeks lucky winner will receive a lovely Stamps by Chloe stamp.
I try not to go into too much detail about health on my blog, but I receive such kind enquiries to see how I am doing so in light of being handed a bit of a bombshell this week, feel I need to share if for no other reason than to explain my inevitable absences from blogland.
I've had eye issues stemming from my MS and associated bouts of Optic Neuritis for years, but not prepared for the devastating news at a routine hospital referral to schedule cataract surgery. I've been told I have irreversible and untreatable optic nerve and cornea damage and am going blind. They could not give me a time frame as it could be one to ten years before sight is lost. They are still doing my cataracts as it should improve my vision short term, so that's on 7th December.
And to top that off, Thursday hubby was rushed into hospital with heart issues, he had a heart attack at 40 so they are always cautious with him, he's now waiting for further tests. So I'll admit to being like two sheets in the wind this week.
Against all of that everything else pales into insignificance, I've built up resistance to the head injections for migraine so back to several all dayer's most weeks, but on a positive note I've been given the all clear following the last kidney CT scan so some good news.
Now back to my cards and will say that the flowers on the top one are white, but afraid on my photo you can be forgiven for thinking they are creamy yellow. An embossed back panel, a lattice frame both TL, leaves which are also TL, the flowers and some Butterflies which are Chocolate Baroque stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with detail white EP.
This one actually had two lives (see second picture below) as after making it using TL dies and embossing folder, flowers and lots of pearls I realised I needed a pearl wedding anniversary card but knew it would need to have some pink on it so added some pretty die cuts and an Italian sentiment sent to me by my friend Alice, thank you Alice it was perfect for this card.
