So my eyes feel like they are on fire but I don't know whether to itch them or run cold water over them! :( I haven't had pink eye since grade school and now I remember how much it stinks! The crazy thing is...I'm not even teaching right now! You would figure if I was going to get pink eye it would be during the school year. Apparently not! Anyway, despite the fact that my eyes are killing me, I have been stamping like crazy! :D My hubby is working on finding us (meaning him) a truck so I decided I should play! Hehe!

For this card I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I worked FOREVER on this card! I even got Nick involved! Haha. I am just to the point where I am giving up on it though. I don't know what needs to change and I honestly don't care! Do you ever get to that point with a card? Where it's almost better to just start fresh? That's how I am feeling. It's not horrible, but it's not great either. Either way, the card is due tonight so I might as well turn it in as is. If anyone has some constructive criticism I would gladly take it! :D I loved Julee's sketch, don't get me wrong, there is just something I don't like about my card. Nick agrees too. I put crystal effects on the butterfly wings and made the sentiment bubble out like a flag. I think that helped some. Oh well! Haha. Ok, enough babbling about it. You can see it for yourself!

So...does anyone want to see how bad my eyes are??? If not, sorry. I am going to post a picture but I am not going to gross you out by making it a huge picture! Haha. I just want your sympathy! Hehehehe. Just teasing! I suppose I am going to have to go to the doctor tomorrow to get it taken care of though. I don't think this heals on it's own. are my eyes. Don't look too close!

Yowsa, I hope you get better/fell better soon. Go to the DR is right,they can give you antobotics. I'll be prayin' for God's speed!

Pinkeye won't go away on it's own... and remember it's highly contagious until you've been using antibiotic eye drops for at least 24 hours. So wash your hands alot... and so should anyone else who is in contact with you.

So sorry about your eyes. Hope it gets better soon. I think your card is beautiful. I really like the dimension and the eyelets. The only thing I can think that would maybe help set it off a bit more is a thin darker mat between the Dp and the cardbase. From the photo it looks like the ivory in the cardstock and the white in the DP are kind of fighting with each other since they're so close. A mat would break it up and draw your eye inward on the card. Thanks for playing my challenge! :)

I am so sorry you have conjunctivitis =*( My cat has it too! Like many others have said, you need to get it treated with an antibiotic ointment or drops. Try not to touch your eyes and wash your hands with a good antibacterial soap frequently. If you have used any eye make in the past few days like mascara, eyeliner, shadow, etc. you will need to throw them away so you don't risk a re-infection.

Your card is beautiful and congrats on becoming this week's SCS featured stamper! I am having a hard time choosing just one of your beautiful cards to case!
