FMS#283

Hi, everyone!!!!


So happy to say that my eye is 100% and I'm wearing both contact lenses again!!!!  Thanks for all your get well wishes regarding my eye - I really appreciated that!!!!!


There's a lovely sketch up at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!  This is what it looks like:

 

I've made this card following the sketch:


The piece of designer paper is from Lady Pattern Paper, a local company.
The leaves die was a gift from a sweet friend!!!
Sentiment stamp from Altenew.



We've got a fire going outside.  Our son went fishing yesterday and he bought some fresh fish home so we're doing that on the fire for supper!!!!!  And I've got some butter, olive oil, sage and citrus peel potatoes (ala Jamie Oliver) in the oven to go with that!!!!!



Thank you so much for visiting!!!!!  Always a pleasure having you here!!!!

So glad to hear that your eye has improved. I well remember the perils of wearing contact lens, the irritations that could happen. And your fresh fish over the fire sounds so yummy! Love this CAS & subtle colored card design. It's so very striking, yet just simple and elegant. The tiny leaf was the perfect embellishment too. Well done! TFS & Hugs. Happy Easter.

Oh, dear... I didn't even know you had some eye issues. Not good for crafting! I'm so happy it's resolved. Such a pretty card. Love the tiny die-cut leaf, so sweet! The back strip with the greeting is perfect. Happy Easter Petra!

Donna Ellis said...

So glad to hear that you no longer have that icky eye pain, and that your vision is back to normal, Petra! Goodness, we treasure our eyes, and then, treasure them even more when there is a problem with one or both. Thanks for sharing your good news!

I love how you interpret sketches, and layer on the elements so that they make a huge statement! Tiny though the elements are, the colors and ways you utilize them are what bring about the masterpiece! Just lovely! Wishing you a wonderful Easter Season! hugs, de

These subtle colors are perfect for this sketch. I love the design on that patterned paper and how you've accented it with a simple sentiment and the die cut leaf. And the sequins and dots are the perfect little embellishment.
