Gift Card and Birthday Card

Hello! It's Friday and the weekend is almost here...
It's been an exhausting week ... Doctors, Chiropractor, Chiropodist, and I would also have been going for my hospital dermatology appointment had they not cancelled on me ... Getting old is such fun! You get to meet so many medical people Lol!

My DH was away last weekend visiting his brother and he collapsed whilst he was there hence the doctor's visit this week ...It seems his labyrinthitis has returned, whilst I've been suffering with an old back problem.

However, I have had a little crafting time and I made a gift card holder for a friend's birthday, then decided that perhaps I should do a birthday card to go with it.


So this is the gift card holder and I used the pretty Woodware flower stamp again colouring it with Copics... This stamp was a sale item (£3.99) and I really like it
Here's the inside...


I think that verse is so funny... And here's my card


 I stamped a few times at different angles and just cut what I wanted to use ...It just gives another look to the stamp


I had those little scraps of striped paper in my 'bits' box and the keen eyed amongst you will recognize some very old PTI paper that I used for the die cut word 'Enjoy' which is a Sue Wilson die... my UK friends can find it Here

I hope you all have a great day and enjoy your weekend

Till soon

Such a pretty creation!
I know right, you know when you are OLD when you get up in the morning feeling ache everywhere in your body, what the h? I just rested? LOL!
I can so add to eye doctor to your list, I have been seeing one since last august and nothing helps, I wrote them a bad review and then they don't call me anymore where I still have follow up visit needs to be done, so sick of the medical system here too, so not just the medical people we have to deal with, also the medical system, time like this, I wish I was in Singapore.

So sorry to hear you are having health problems again. I hope your back will be less painful soon. And that your DH will be feeling well soon. That stamp is well spend money; I love that gift card holder and the design of the card is brilliant. I love the layering of the perfectly colored flowers and that sentiment. The strips of patterned paper are a perfect match!
