It’s Friday, it’s been raining and Colin gets his eyes checked today. The first two are really good news, lets hope we get good news on the eye front. If you haven’t been reading my blog for too long, Colin has Amblyopia, otherwise known as a Lazy Eye. He has worn glasses for the past 2 1/2 years and we have been patching for the same. His vision in his left eye started out at worse than 20/100. He couldn’t see at all when we first patched his right eye. He has been holding steady at 20/30 but he patches everyday for 3 hours. We will see what today brings. I know it means new glasses because his frames on one pair broke yesterday, but we have a back up pair with scratched lenses. Kids are hard on glasses, that much I have learned.
This card was made for the color challenge. It simply said to use monochromatic colors. I chose Baja Breeze and Pacfic Point along with Whisper White. I rock and rolled my butterflies by first stamping in Baja Breeze and then rolling the edges of the same stamp in Pacfic Point before stamping it. The center butterfly is popped up on dimensionals. I promise it looks 100x better in real life. This one was really hard to photograph for some reason.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. We have a soccer game tomorrow, that is if the field isn’t flooded. On Sunday I have my monthly stamp class and I’m so excited to stamp with everyone. We always have so much fun.
