I Must Be Getting Old!

Had my routine eye test this morning,only to be told,"Well you've not done too bad,most people need to wear glasses at your age!" lol blooming cheek,wasn't sure whether I wanted to laugh or cry so smiled politely and took a few gulps hoping not to let myself down with a few tears ( I'm sure the old hormones are also kicking in too) Told Mr B. who said,"that's good,maybe you wont take so long on the blogging once you can see the screen better then you might get time to do a bit of the ironing done too!" I think he was only joking,he does know better as he quickly added that he'd bring takeaway home tonight,that's good, I might make some cards tonight then!

Made this card especially for a challenge over at A Gem Of A Challenge 4 where the challenge is to make a card using Pink Burgundy and Green.They are also looking for a new design team member if anyone else fancies entering. Also entering this card for A Spoon Full of Sugar which specifies cute and girly,Allsorts Birthday Challenge,week 52 and Basic Grey week 20 Challenge which asks for punches to be used along with some Basic Grey products.I've used papers from their lovely Green at Heart range. Papertake Weekly Challenge is "Say it with flowers" I made my own flower,Check out this LINK to Die Cut Dreams Blog if you want to find out how it was done.So very easy but with beautiful results.
I'm not sure what I've done to change my text to this fancy italic writing but then I make cards,I don't claim to be a computer Wizz! Hope it doesn't look too bad as a post,will try to do better next time. (Maybe I'll be a computer Wizz when I pick up my Glasses!)
Thanks for stopping by,
catch you later,
Julie x

It sure does Sue, I've tried it with the retro daisy EK success punch that we've both got, it really alters the look of it. X
