To die for

I'm still working my way through the poppy images I stamped and printed last week. This card combines poppy images from a MCS cd rom Quintessential Country Garden and a Acrylic poppy stamp heat embossed with black sparkle wow powder. I then added some extra red lines to the stamped poppies with a promarker. I cut the image out using part of a Grand Nestie labels 23.  I've used Spellbinder Asian accents along the edge, in the corners and for the sentiment label.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:-

Crafty cardmakers -more than one punch and /or die cut
Craft room challenge - punches and die cuts
Addicted to stamps and more - red and white
Papertake Weekly -flower power

I went to the hospital on Tuesday for some balance tests. Although they warned me I would need someone with me I was not prepared for the experience. It started off ok, being strapped into a chair with some heavy goggles - felt a bit like Joe 90 - if you remember him. I had to follow lights with my eyes and not move my head. But then they tipped me back and put water through one ear at a time to bring on dizziness. I felt so awful, and all the time I had to shout out names working my way through the alphabet which was apparently to prevent my brain from shutting down! A normal response is that the eye would move 10 times a second but mine moved 119/120 times a second. I felt so sick afterwards and had to take yesterday off work too. All this has now shown that my eye is jerking slightly and I can be given exercises to correct it - so I am not imagining it - good!  and roll on the next appointment for the exercises. I was too ill to try any on Tuesday.

Another gorgeous poppy card, I go back to this Hero one time and again, I think we perhaps used it at a class you came to?
