Busy Times

Hello sweet friends

It's been a busy stressful week and more to come ... 
But first I have a card to share that I made a couple of days ago for this week's 
CAS-Ology challenge 





This is virtually all digital ... I have been trying to learn some techniques in Print Shop and that fragmented and bubble edge effect of the digital paper is one of them 



The butterfly is a PTI die and I used distress inks to colour it ...
As for Contrast, well, I have different fonts in the sentiment, Colour contrasts, and then the straight lines against the fragmented and bubble effects ...


In case you are interested, this is how the digital paper looked prior to using various techniques



The sentiment is quite apt for me at the moment so I am entering it at 

Yesterday my DH had surgery to remove scar tissue from the back of his eye ... his vision was really bad and being very deaf does not help! 
Oh the joys of getting old ...

Anyway he was extremely nervous ... more so than when he had his cataracts done ... As it turned out it was a blessing in disguise as they discovered a hole in the retina ... They repaired it but it means that he has to stay sitting in an upright position with his head still for a while ... Maybe 2 weeks - He's allowed up for 10 minutes in every hour to prevent blood clots ...

Needless to say I am running around and administering Meds so if I don't get to visit your blogs for a while ... please bear with me.

I am thrilled at all the lovely comments I received on my Candle Jar - Thanks so much!! It really means a lot ...

Lastly a Big Thank You to my sweet friend Kirsty who sent me this lovely gift and stunning card


A gorgeous tin filled with beautiful postcards and envelopes


I'm one lucky girl


Thanks for looking in on me today ...

Till soon take care
