Good News - Bad News - and a Card


Good news! Bad news: Good news is all the multiple nodules on my thyroid are benign. Bad news - I have silent acid reflux and I'm on meds and a strict diet. This is very silent acid reflux as I've never, ever had heart burn or any other symptoms in my life! How does one cook without onion and garlic; tomato sauce; spices; black pepper and more....and only one coffee a day...no tea either. She (ENT doctor) very happy I don't drink alcohol; pop (that's another big no-no) or smoke and eat healthy but she would like me to add chicken to my diet....not going to happen! And of course I just made a double batch of that squash/onion cannoli yesterday that's swimming in tomato sauce! Oh well, could be worse.


Here is another Halloween card…this one is for my 10 year old grandson.



This is another Z-fold card  (I always make the grandsons the same type of card....just different paper and elements). This is it folded up…ignore the paper clip it was just holding it closed for me. Lots of different companies’ products used here. The frog was a free download from the Internet so I have no idea where it originated from. The tombstone and owl were made with Sizzix dies….love these ones! The bats are from an old rubber stamp. The designer paper is Tim Holtz plus some from the stash.

 This is the card opened up. The witch is from another stamp set and the cloud is a die cut from a Sizzix set. The circle was die cut and sponged with Distress Inks; Mustard Seed and a bit of Spice Marmalade. 






This is the side view. I’ve added some of the tags along the edge and under the frog. So its a bit of whimsy and a bit of spooky which I think he will like.

 
That’s all for a lovely sunny, but cool, Monday, October 16, 2017


Cheers

Violet
