So, didcha miss me?!! LOL!! Well I haven't been in blog-world for the past 3 weeks because I had something really weird happen. Woke up one morning without vision in my right eye. Scared the pants off me! Anyway after a trip to the hospital (... with my pants by the way...) I had learned that it was a fairly thick cataract and could be fixed with surgery. Whew!! It's very odd for a cataract to come on so suddenly - but it's all fixed now. Actually I was on the surgery table only 3 hours ago and now I'm blogging a couple of Kimmie Christmas cards... couldn't have turned out any better if you ask me!! (can you tell how thrilled I am..........?!!). So onto a couple of Kimmie cards that I've made a while ago.........

I love the playfulness of these Kimmie Stamps. In common for both... they are colored with copics, the Cuttlebug snowflake die & matching embossing folder was used along with a little machine stitching.

Wish I could remember those papers.... let me think.....I know the top one is Basic Grey eskimo kisses, but the bottom one is either Basic Grey or Pink Paislee.

Well off I go... "I can see clearly now... the rain has gone....!!" (Okay... this super cheerful mood has got to go - I'm even annoying myself.)

Stamps: Kraftin Kimmie Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery & Basic Grey eskimo kisses Assessories: SU! gr/grain Bashful Blue ribbon, blue silk ribbon, diamond dots, glitter, brads Tools: Cuttlebug snowflake, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders Nestibilities, MS snowflake punch Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
