"Diamond Birthday"

So I went to the doctor yesterday and I have good news and bad news. Good news is that I don't have pink eye. Bad news is that I am having a transplant rejection episode. It isn't serious though so don't worry. I have actually been dealing with that for the past year and a half. The doctor wasn't very concerned so that is good. He said that my cornea looks good but there is a little spot where the virus is on the tissue. I am back on my daily steroid eye drops and my preventive pill and I go back in two weeks to see how the meds are working. So over all, I am just fine. Last night my friend Erica came over to stamp. It was a blast. She brought pizza and key lime pie. Yummy! I met Erica from my stamp class. She is super cool and funny. It sure is nice to have another one to hang with and stamp. Thanks Erica for the good time last night.
Ok, on to the card. I love love love this paper. I just love the design. I decided to make that part of the card too. I cut out the bottom of the card to match the pattern on the paper, I think it looks so cool. Of course I had to glitter up the cupcake. LOL The Happy Birthday is from the so many scallops sale-a-bration set. I just used the marker to ink up the greeting.

It still sounds serious, but I'll believe you when you say it isn't....my hat's off to you no matter what because I can't even touch my eye let alone have to go through all that you are/have to!

Super cute card! :-)

Many Blessings,
