good friends, good times

Today, I chatted on the phone and via skype to lots of my stamping friends (and my piano teacher!!).  It was great fun and I got several cards designed.  Boy do I wish that everyone had good friends who were thoughtful and supportive. 


All cardstock can be found at Mark's Finest Papers.  Don't you think this is so very springy?

I got a phone call today that my new spectacles have arrived. I'm actually looking forward to getting them!  Last Thursday, I realized that my eyes really are sore..and I was having a really hard time reading fine print and the notes on the sheet music and viewing the TV.  So, I quickly called the best eye doctor in town.  And set up an appointment for the very next day.  Dr. Payne says that I'll be needing these glasses to read, craft, play the piano...but I'm going to find that I will just start wearing them all the time.  (And my mother confirmed that she started wearing glasses all the time about at about my age as well.)  I've been wearing a pair of drug store glasses all week...most of the day too. And, wouldn't you know it, my eyes aren't sore. I can actual read with out tiring.  Isn't that grand! haha.

Welcome to my world. Oh well, can't change the process of age on the eyes.

Love your card, especially the color combo. Very cheery.
