Miss You

 Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a wonderful day.  I received some not so good news today, but all in all I had a pretty good day.  My day started out by going to an eye doctor appointment and it was confirmed that I have glaucoma.  I suspected that would be the case, it runs in my family and my sister has it also.  The good news is that it is not really bad yet so I am starting treatment now and hopefully it will help.  I just feel so young to have glaucoma already, (I'm 42).  After my appointment my husband and I went to lunch (without the kids) and then went to look at furniture for Katie's big girl room.  I found a few sets that I liked, now I just have to decide which one!  I also had a chance to make a card today, which is always a good thing!

So this time I made an easel card using Tilda with cat.  Design Papers that I used are Kaiser Craft and Susan Winget.  I really like the country old fashion feel to the Susan Winget paper.  Kind of reminds me of my grandmother, although she really didn't like cats, LOL!

The Pixie Cottage Challenge #22

Copics used to color with:  W3, Y23, W00, B41, E31, E53, E57, B0000, E33, B93, R20, E00, E21
I used Distress Ink, Pumice Stone, to shade with.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hello Lisa! Such a beautiful easel card! I love your paper and color combination. Your Tilda is wonderfully colored. A very sweet card. I read your post, and find it sad to received such a news at a so yound age, on another hand, treating now, at early stage, can certainly help. Take care.

Hi Lisa - Treatment for glaucoma has become so advanced, I'm sure yours will be a great success - hang in there sweetie!! Your card is awesome - love the vintage feel of the dark colours. I entered my first easel card in this challenge as well, but it's definitely not as nice as yours - I'm still learning, I guess!! Good luck in the challenge - both of them!!

Lisa, sorry to hear about your dr appt. But with early diagnosis they will be able to get a jump start on treating it. Remember honey don't borrow trouble from tomorrow and take one day at a time. We sometimes worry ourselves about things that we don't have to worry about when we do that.
Love your card. It is fabulous as always!
