Good morning crafting friends

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend despite the cold and wet weather!

I had an appointment with a neurosurgeon on Saturday, at the RVI in Newcastle.  There is 'something' in/on my spine that he can't explain and wants me to have a full spine MRI very soon
The endoscopy unit at Bishop Auckland Hospital are booking me in for a top and tail (urrrrrgh) endoscopy and colonoscopy within the two week urgent referral procedure and it doesn't end there as, this coming Saturday, I'm at the Diagnostic & Treatment Centre, Durham, to finally see Professor Kumar/Rheumatologist!  Hopefully, when all of the above comes to an end, not literally I hope, hubby and I won't know what to do with ourselves.  These health problems have been every day since 21 December 2018!  Obviously the rheumatoid never stops but boy everything else that's been thrown at me has been trying to say the least.  Have I also mentioned the GP is sending me for an ultrasound as she thinks I have a 'Baker's Cyst'?  Roll on 2020

Now onto something nice!

I stamped the flowers onto ordinary white cardstock and coloured them using watercolour pencils

The sentiment was heat embossed

I then added the card to a slightly larger red 'pebble' effect paper and adhered it to the card base

I used the larger stamp for the front and back of the envelope and the inside of the card

The verse was also heat embossed

  • flowers - magazine freebie
  • sentiment/verse stamp set - Creative Expressions
  • watercolour pencils - Derwent
  • metallic gold rich embossing powder - WOW
  • ink pad - VersaFine CLAIR
I'm sending this card to my aunt in Canada

  1. Lovely card June - nearly a CAS in my books!!! The red 'pebble' paper looks lovely - just adding a bit of texture!
    I love your positivity about your health - I am impressed with the 'when'statement - not an 'if'. Reading your weekly/daily exploits, I cannot help but feel your are being looked after very well - albeit the procedures are not pleasant!
    Take Care - keep crafting!

  2. Wow, you have and still are going through the mill June, hope it all gets sorted.

  3. Beautiful card, June. Good luck with all the medical issues.
