beautiful Belle...

Good morning everyone have you got anything exciting happening this weekend...go on tell me I'm dead nosey you know lol...I got a phone call from my Dad yesterday did I fancy a trip out?...how says I, apparently over the last few days he has been taking longer and longer jaunts on his own in the car and he is driving like a dream, sneaky man lol...well we went out and even got to have 'put the world to right' coffee too, hes like a new man, super confident and fascinated at how much he can see and the distance he can see...he said something that made me have a big lump in my throat though, he said every morning he wakes up hes scared to open his eyes in case his eye has gone back to the way it was before.... aaaaaawwwwww I gave him a hug and told him it wont happen now its fixed it will stay fixed and its only a few more weeks before the other is done too...it isn't an urgent case like the last one and he can see with his glasses on fine just in case you think hes driving around half blind, I may be a bit nuts but I'm not nuts enough to get in a car with a half blind man I promise you lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this fabulously gorgeous new Ribonita release sweetie from Sugar Nellie, shes called Belle and is available from Funky Kits...I coloured her with distress inks and added just a hint of glitter (couldn't resist, once I open the glitter glue I have to use it lol), the fab papers are from Basicgrey Marjolaine collection and are called Tuxedo Pie, lush colours aren't they, I dinished with a fab satin ribbon, sentiment, buttons and cut some of the flowers from the paper to finish...the fab sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Stamptacular Sunday challenge and Sweet Stampin' challenge too...I'm heading to town today to see if I can get any ideas for an Anniversary present for Phil, I haven't a clue at all so any ideas gratefully accepted...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Mina, what a gorgeous card. I am so pleased your dad is doing so well. I worked for five years as a Medical Secretary to a Consultant Ophthalmologist and it never ceased to amaze me the calls I got from patients saying what a wonder it was to see again. Yes, as you say, as long as your dad's eyesight is good in one eye he's OK to drive. The only problem you might have is when he has both eyes done as you'll never stop him talking about what he can see but that is such a marvel you won't mind that. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Tammy said...

What a sweet dad you have to surprise you with his driving, sparing you the worry.
Love your card and the sweet flower and bow.

Dee said...

So glad that you Dad's a new man, excited everyday with the change in his vision! Happy Anniversary and you will find just the right gift for your husband. Your card is so sweet! I love your choice of colours and papers. And of course, your colouring is wonderful...have a great weekend. I am babysitting two of my grandbabies over night...I am looking forward to that!

Hi Mina. Just had a, as you say, "mooch around" your creations I have missed lately. They are all beautiful as usual, but I do love that cute little dragon and his matching DP and Groovy Baby the best. So glad to hear your Dad is doing well. My Mom is now living with me and has had some adventures lately herself. Have a fabulous time at the farmhouse with your fabulous Phil.

Rufus said...
