Have you ever tried making a card wearing only one of your contact lenses, cause the other eye has some infection, or allergic reaction, or whatever????? That was me last night!!!!! I've been feeling a scratchiness in my right eye since Saturday and on Sunday my eye was red and more scratchy, but I was still wearing both my lenses. Yesterday morning it was really bad and I decided not to put my lens in that eye and only wear the left lens!!!! I went to the chemist to get some eye drops to put in the eye and it's somewhat better this morning, but I'm still not wearing the right eye lens!!! My eyesight is very bad (-8 in the right eye!!!!) so you can imagine how blurry everything is when I'm not wearing both lenses!!!!! I have to sit with my nose nearly touching the computer screen to see what I'm typing!!!!!! LOL!!!!! That is such a big frustration, but hopefully by tomorrow my eye will be OK again!!!! I've actually taken out the left lens, as well now and it's much better than wearing only one lens!!!!
I found it very frustrating to do anything on the computer with only the one lens and I decided that I wanted to rather try making a card, last night!!!! I've made a card to link at three challenges!!!! At the Seize the Birthday
Blog they have an optional topping of 'Vellum' and I've followed the sketch at the Fusion Card Challenge
Blog, to make my card. And then there is a new challenge, Always Fun Challenges
, that started their first challenge yesterday, and it's an 'Anything Goes' challenge.
Our theme for the new challenge is
This is my card:
The stamps I've used on this card has a story I want to share with you!!! I think most of you will know Lindsey Larson from Occasional Crafting
. Well, Lindsey had some stamps and dies that she wasn't using anymore and she was so sweet to send me a LOT of these goodies and you can just imagine how very excited I was to receive Lindsey's parcel in my mailbox!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw all the stamps and dies Lindsey had sent!!!!!! So all the stamps I've used on this card was a gift from the very sweet Lindsey!!!!! Oh, and Lindsey also included some sequins and the ones on this card is a lovely yellowish green and I love it!!! Thank you so much again, Lindsey - I really appreciate you thinking of me when you wanted to find a new home for your lovely stamps and dies!!!!!!! There is a little 'thank-you-something' on it's way to you, my friend!!!!!
Butterfly die from PTI.
Vellum cut with Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangle die.
I hope there aren't any fingerprints or dirty marks on my card I didn't see!!!! And I had to trust the Auto setting on my camera to hopefully have the photo's in focus!!!!!
One thing regarding the Always Fun Challenges: I couldn't find anything in the rules regarding combining with other challenges, so I hope it's OK that I have combined with other challenges!!!!! If it's not allowed the DT can let me know and I will remove my card from the gallery!!!!
Apologies for the long post!!!!
Thank you so much for spending some time with me!!!!!
