Mothers Koala

Hi Crafters, today I'm showing you a card I've made for my Mil for Mothers day, the image is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and it is called 'Mothers Koala' I love this sweet image. I'm sorry if the photo is blurry, I'm not sure if it is or not as my eyesight is blurry due to getting eye dilating drops in yesterday, when do they wear off? lol. Anyway, I've coloured the image using copics and I've sponged around the edges with some distress ink. The buttons, tags and flowers are a prize from Lets Craft and Create, thank you again ladies and the lace is from The Ribbon Girl, fab store. Well, yesterday I was telling you that I went for a consultation to get laser eyes! lol, all went well, had the tests, was told I was just within the the limits for the surgery to work but the surgeon would need to make a final decision, so they phoned this morning and I can't get it done, bit disapointed, apparently the result wouldn't be good enough to be glasses free. There is a bit of good news, they can do something called ....oh can't remember the name now....replacement lens something or other but at the minute I'm too young, haha, haven't heard that in a while, so need to go back in about 3 years. So glasses it is! and if I wash my hair with conditioner and use shampoo for bubble bath then so be it. Before I go I just want to remind you to come along and join in this weeks Little Miss Muffet Challenge, the theme is 'Stitching, Real or Faux' we would love to see your designs.

you're too funny, are the kids wondering why the shampoo bottles are empty after mother's bubble bath!?! lol
I'm too much of a coward to even check to see if I qualify for lasik. But the old eyes sure aren't what they used to be and I definitely need new glasses! ugh!

Adorable card, love the little koala!!
hugs to you!
