Less is More

Hello everyone!
Well it's a miserable, dark, wet morning in my little corner of the world.  Methinks it's another day in the craft room.  Yesterday I made quite a few cards for my craft fair box and I got inspiration from the very talented Jules on some quick, easy but stunning Christmas cards so that could well be what I'm up to later.

Thanks to everyone who sent good wishes yesterday for my hospital appointment.  All went well and the consultant thought I may have a blocked tear duct and wanted me to wait to see the nurse and have it flushed out. Unfortunately, as Mr C was with me and due to start work in an hour, I couldn't wait but have to go back on 22nd to have the procedure done so fingers crossed all will be well after that.  My eye isn't sore or anything but it's just so annoying when it does run and I feel I have a paper hankie permanently in my hand when I'm outdoors.

What a rotten sleep I had last night.  I was really tired so popped off to bed whenever New Tricks finished at 10.  I was asleep by 1030 but woke up around 2 and the last time I looked at the clock it was 0457 and I hadn't slept a wink, needless to say I could have stayed in bed this morning!  

Off now to get ready for the day.
Hope you have a good one.

Fabulous, beautiful card.

A gorgeous image Anne.
That's exactly the problem my mum had with her eyes. Even though it's 50 years on it seems the treatment is still the same.

You should have called me Anne! I was awake from just before 2 until I eventually got up just before 6. I can now barely keep my eyes open. Anyway, I love your CAS card. Looks great. Christine xx
