A quick one

I made a really quick Christmas card yesterday night in response to the 365 cards challenge Just a fraction. The idea was to use only a piece of a stamped image on your card. I cropped my Hero Arts stamp pretty much and I like the result. I also pimped the image and the Red Wassail paper with red distress stickles.

God JulIt was impossible to get a decent photo of it in the dark yesterday. I HATE the darkness!

And when I’m at it here is the latest layout I did for a COF challenge – to use stitching and paint. I was planning to go wild and crazy with the paint, but I couldn’t. I guess I’m rather controlled right now…Strandkul

And now you can stop reading, cause now I’ll start the wining section! Eeek!!! My eyes went bananas again the other day. They itch, are dry, swollen and look like hell and I’m supposed to “wait”. I got a letter last Friday which says I will get an appointment with the specialist in 2 to 3 months. Wohoo! When I contacted the Dr’s office today I was told to use more of the cortisone and eat more medication and hope it would get better in a day or two. If not, contact them again on Monday. So wait I will, and feel like my eyes are coming out of my skull looking like a 150 year old turtle with freaking VASELINE around it’s eyes. Yay for me.

That sounds really awfull! I had something like that with my eyes year ago, I looked like a pandabear with huge red stains surrounding my eyes...so I think I know how you feel, GOOD LUCK!
By the way, your card is gorgeous again, love how you used the beads on it.

Hej gumman! Oj, vilka vackra kort du gjort, gillar dem allihop, du är så himla duktig och kreativ!!! Layouten är också fin med så milda färger och fina foton! Gillar oxå när du använt maskinsöm på dina alster, det blir så snyggt och stilrent!
Vad jag lider med dig med dina torra ögon, det ÄR JOBBIGT!!! Det ska gudarna veta!!! Klådan är SÅ enerverande, känns som man vill slita ut ögat och klia på det och innanför ögat, kämpa på!!! Har de inte hittat vad som är felet ännu? Sjögrens syndrom? Allergi?

Ha det gott och sköt om dig och hoppas du får en underbar helg med din familj!

Stor KRAM Susanne
