"Best Friends"


So I woke up Saturday with something goin' on with my eye. I blew it off cause I was just thinking that it was allergies. We have hundreds of fires going on right now in California, some as close as 40 miles from me. The air is very smokey and smells like fire. Well each day it is getting redder and more swollen. This morning my lids were swollen and stuck shut. So now I am thinking it is pink eye. At least I am hoping it is pink eye. I know who hopes for pink eye. Well, that would be me. I'll tell you why. I had a bad infection that started in 2003. I ended up having a corneal transplant in 2005. I don't want to go through that again. The virus I had is still in my eye and will be there forever, it also can come back at any time. So I would rather have pink eye that can be treated and will go away than get that virus back. I have an appointment this afternoon to find out what is going on.
Ok, now on to this card. Don't you love the colors of this paper? What a great combo. This is a long card. 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 folded in half.
Stamps: Stampendous, Hero Arts
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Basic Black, Paper Salon DP
Ink: Stazon Black, Pink Passion
Accessories: Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Stickles, SU Markers

Hi! I was looking for a centerpiece for July 4th on SCS and saw your Easter one! I love it! I hope your eye is okay. I got a papercut on my cornea once (really deep) and it was just awful.

Rochelle, with you history I'm ashamed of you letting your eye problem go like that! Good heavens woman! I'm hoping for pink eye too! (no matter how weird it feels! LOL!) And I DO love those colors and all your cutest in the world projects for teachers! queen Mary G
