Hello my crafty pals and welcome to my new pal. Hope you are all well. I think I sussed out this schedule thingy, you set the date and time and then click publish – we shall see later. I am at the eye hospital having tests so not looking forward to it but my sight is so important to me, taking care of it is a top priority. Afterwards as I am in Bristol I intend going shopping so hopefully my blurry vision doesn’t misread the prices but I should be ok in the pound shop and primark. I may even get as far as St Nicolas market to browse the lace and buttons. 
I have played with an oldy favourite here but this is the first time I have used promarkers for it. It took a very gentle touch to do this so much practice needed – lol. I love reading your comments and I will try to get around blogland when I come home unless they advise rest. If I disappear for a few days you will know why so please have some crafty fun.

PS: Good Afternoon, glad to see that I managed the schedule thingy, Thank you all for your comments and good wishes, my visit went very well once I got there , we had to be diverted due to an accident that closed the main road so I was late. I do have ointment and drops for my eyes so no crafting or driving for a few days.  I shall then catch up on everything that is happening. Sending you all crafty hugs. xx Flora

  6. Hi Flora,
    super card. Love the image and your colouring in is wonderful.
    I got diagnosed 2years ago with cysts in the back of the eyeballs.
    I noticed I was loosing a letter or figure from words ,and I don't see straight lines I see wiggly ones and they move. So good luck with your eye test. Not much fun afterwards with blurry vision. As you say can't go wrong in the pound shop. My stepson made a joke after I was diagnosed. He said to my husband don't let her loose on the computer to buy, otherwise something that is £2,000 will look like £200 pound to her. He wasn't far
    Sorry I have written war and peace
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
