Good afternoon and welcome. Update on my cataract surgery which was scheduled for today: Got postponed! After I had gotten myself all geared up to do it, get it over with, the doctor (very wisely) decided to wait to get some 12 yr old pre-lasix eye measurements from my Florida clinic...and that's IF these records can be found. Long story - but the short version is: the clinic has relocated; since I'm no longer an active patient, my records were archived to a central storage facility...may or may not be able to get located. But the doctor wanted to have the effort made. So now I'm tentatively scheduled for Dec ?5?. Anyhoo, all the scurrying around, dealing with 2 different clinics in 2 different states, several different nurses, techs, etc. - is why I've been MIA for a couple of days. OK...enough on that. It's in God's Hands, and I'm happy to leave it there. For the card: The image is by Impression Obsession-D8295, very easy to color. I used some Chromatix markers purchased at A C Moore. Added to my collection this past Black Friday. These have a small nib & a brush nib. I liked the small nib for the tiny area coloring, but I don't think these blend quite as nicely as the copics (could be the operator also). Diecut with a S/B Classic Oval - sponged with a bit of Memento Sky Blue, which gave the nice grayish tone at the edge - which I liked. The Distress Inks were too bright for this effect. Then diecut a bit of burgundy-ish Bazzill for a mat. The teal cardbase was a snippet that was in the pile, so embossed it with the Crafts Too Christmas Ornament EF, dabbed a smidge of Delicata Gold ink onto the embossing. Diecut a snippet of some greenish paper with the Cheery Lynn Carnivale die, then added a small strip cut from Authentique 12x12 Festival Collection, just because I thought the trim needed a touch of brightening. Since I do have a few snippets on here, perhaps I might just take a pitcher of eggnog over to Pixie's Playground and see what those mischievous pixies are up to. I'm tellin' ya, those girls have the mostest fun. Also it's the final Rudolph Challenge over here at Stamping for Pleasure, so I'll enter this little card in that Challenge. Another place where there's lots of fun to be enjoyed. Check out both these places, and you're in for a treat! Have a great day, and Hugs & thanks for the visit.
