Sweet Pea - Peony

Happy Friday the 13th !!

I had myself in quite a state today because I was scheduled for laser iridotomy on both eyes...and it's Friday the 13th!  Oh ya, I am superstitous.  My lovely Welsh Grandmother, whom I loved dearly, taught me all the "dont's" and they have stuck with me   I even considered cancelling my appointment but I would have to wait another month so decided to forget what day it was.  But every news program HAD to mention it, didn't they!   So off I went with my DH, who is my support (and not superstitous).  Procedure is fast and just a little uncomfortable.   My vision will be blurry for about 4 hours so I've got a legit excuse for out-of-focus photography (lol).

Here is a card made with an image I love.  It's a Sweet Pea stamp called "Peony" that my youngest Granddaughter encouraged me to buy.   We would colour them in the mornings before I took her to JK/SK.  I do miss having her with me as she is in school full time now.

The black netting is from the outside wrapping around our Easter ham (which was completely sealed).

I can't believe the coincidences: I have what my ("non believer") hubby calls "a million hill billy do's and don'ts" courtesy of my Welsh Father. I had iridotomy on both eyes 11 years ago on my husbands birthday - April 13! It wasn't Black Friday though :-) I've tried hard not to pass all those "rules" on to my kids, it's such a bind getting someone else to pick up a knife etc, lol. Anyway, I think your card is gorgeous... I LOVE that netting (what a clever idea) and of course the image is beautiful, TFS, Donna ☺
