Good morning crafty friends

I hope the week is going fine for you all.  I've been undecided whether to give you an update on my health issues, as this year has been the worst ever (right from 1st January) as I know I sound like the 'walking wounded', hubby said I am lol.  So, I had an abdominal ultrasound scan on Friday and, would you believe, I've now got gallstones to add to my increasing list of medical issues!  I put the severe pain I get down to the large hiatus hernia (haven't mentioned that one to you) but was told on Friday that "it may be  the hernia or the gallstones".  I now await to hear from the consultant regarding treatment etc etc

Now onto nice things, today's card.  It's taken 4 attempts to get this card right!  I've smudged ink, twice messed up the flower and can't even remember what the fourth one was!

The font on the sentiment is supposed to look that way

Both top and bottom have the decorative edge

  1. Beautiful card June - love the subtle colours you have used! Suitable as a birthday card, or a note card!
    I imagine you want this year to end soon - maybe 2020 will be kinder. Hopefully, the consultant can devise the right treatment for you - not that I am wishing surgery on you, but a friend of mine suffered with Gallstones - eventually had her gall bladder removed and has never looked back. Everybody is different - be patient - let the consultant find you the right treatment! Take Care!
