Well, there was another episode in the hiatus hernia saga today. Doc told me they won't operate, as it's not life threatening, and instead they'll just treat the symptoms for the rest of my life.
I don't think so!! Aside from the fact that I don't want heartburn and medication for the rest of my life (I'm still the right side of 40, for goodness' sake!), but the hernia is interfering with my ability to sing, and that I CAN'T live with!
So I made an appointment with another doctor, and will try again next week. I fully intend to keep making appointments and making a nuisance of myself until they do something to sort it! lol.
Anyways, there are more fun things to be talking about. Like this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'. And the theme this week is Spots or Stripes or both.
Easy peasy. I'm sure you're all as bad as me and have stacks of spotty stripy things lying around, no? (Surely I'm not the only compulsive paper hoarder? hehe...)
I opted for both, and put together a card for a friend's birthday. She likes red, so that was my starting point, and I chose a bluey/teal to go with it for contrast.
I do love these stamps. And of course they just beg to be paper-pieced!
Originally this card did not have corners, but before I managed to photograph, there was a slight mishap involving Distress blending tools, lol.
I hope you'll find the time to play along with us this week!
Have a fantabulous weekend!
