Good morning dear bloggers....

I'm apologising again as I've only realised I forgot to do last week's give-away card plus there are two of my lovely ladies still awaiting a tub of embossing powder and another freebie card!!  I will get this sorted!  In my career I was always organised, on top of everything, couldn't function without my 'to do' list folder but that seems to have gone down the pan rapidly this year!

All the elements for this CAS card are from Tonic's Craft Kit 19

It's a 6" square card base and with another slightly smaller panel I used the 'with love' die without the outer cutting edge

Then, using the papers from the kit, I cut a narrow length from each colour.  These were then cut in half and adhered to the centre of the card

I added mounting foam to the top white panel and adhered it to the card and finally 3 of the gems were glued in place

I really like how you can clearly see that the sentiment is 'with love' unlike yesterday's card that said 'hello'!

If you would like to give this card a new home just leave me a comment (by 6pm Friday) and the winner will be drawn and announced on Saturday's blog

Until tomorrow....

PS  yesterday was my hospital appointment at Sunderland Eye Infirmary.  After another through examination I was told that the rheumatoid inflammation is now in both eyes!  I have to apply the steroid eye drops to both eyes for 6 weeks, starting with 6 drops per eye for the first week then decreasing by one each week

The problem I have with this is that it really blurs my eyesight (or anyone person who has to use the steroid drops).  But having to apply one drop in each eye, 6 times per day is really going to cause problems for me as well as frustration as this past week I've not been able to read or watch TV at all.  Making a card has taken a very long time too.  So, I may have to be absent again for 6 weeks and I am so sorry to have to say that as you all have been so supportive and very kind to me.  Today, Wednesday, is the first day for the 6 drops


  1. Oh no!! I can't imagine how frustrating this is for you - being a 'crafty'person is hard when your eyesight takes a hit - but this, on top of everyhing else...
    Still, be positiv, lets hope the course of drops really help.
    Love this card, the lettering really pops!
    Take Care!

  2. Oh June I am so sorry that you have to go through this. I do hope that the treatment helps. Your card is gorgeous. Take care of yourself. Hugs Jackie

  3. I'm sad to hear about your eyes June, I do hope the drops do their job and that your eyes are back to normal after the course of drops. The card is lovely and so unusual, I like the fact that it so simple to do

  4. This is a beautiful card June. So sorry to hear your latest news and hope the drops help. It must be so frustrating for you with it so hard to do anything. Take care.

  5. So beautiful , simple and effective, xxxx

  6. Hi June,
    so sorry this is the case but hopefully it will sort out the problem.

    Love this super card and that wonderful colourful sentiment is really fab.

    Lots of crafty and gentle hugs. Jenny L.

  7. A great card for you to finish with for a while. Please don't apologise - I think you are very brave and strong to carry on as you do. Hope the eye drops do the job and look forward to when you can blog again. My very best wishes to you both,

  8. Thanks for shearing wonder full information website i like it.
