Almost Back..........

Hi Everyone,

I am coming out of hiding really soon. I still have some vision problems, but it is slowly getting better. Yesterday I had another check-up and I do not need any more procedures on my eye. I had 4 so far and it was NOT fun, definitely NOT......Thanks to that, I also learned, that I will not hold up to torture. I'll admit to anything, whatever it was or not, I'll confess. 

I want to thank all of you for your get well wishes, prayers and all those amazing, wonderful cards you sent me. Wow - I am so grateful for all the support and love you poured out to me. I am so touched. 

Since its all good news I want to share this card with you, that I made a LONG time ago and it got published in the October issue of Craft Stamper Magazine! The theme was Arabian nights. The technique is heat embossing on vellum and colored with Copics. The peony stamp is by Stampendous and the sentiment is by STAMPlorations. The inspiration of this card came from the wonderful Virginia Lu - thanks, Virginia!

Linking up with:

Fabulous and stunning card Cornelia. A complete work of art. So sorry to hear about your health problems and hope you are back at the craft desk really soon. To be honest I've been so busy recently and not visited lots of blogs I like to and thought the other day I'd not seen you around! Take care and look forward to seeing your fabulousness back soon! You're missed! X

Liebe Cornelia, ich denke so oft an dich und habe mir Sorgen gemacht! Habe deine Telefonnummer gefunden, die du mir mal geschickt hast und es mehrmal versucht, aber es klingelte nur. Konnte nicht einmal eine Nachricht hinterlassen!
So schön zu hören, dass du auf dem Weg der Besserung bist! Tolle Karte! Freue mich schon, wenn du wieder öfters posten kannst! Aber nur keinen Stress!
Es umarmt dich,

Allerliebste Cornelia,
ich bin ja soooo froh, dass es dir wieder besser geht. Ja, manchmal braucht man einen Schuss vor den Bug, um wieder etwas ehrfürchtiger zu werden und wahrzunehmen, dass Gesundheit nicht selbstverständlich ist. Allerdings muss es ja nicht so heftig kommen wie bei dir.
Nun gewöhn dir an (ich habe gut reden, mach es ja selber nicht!!!) etwas langsamer zu treten und auf dein Inneres, Dich zu hören.
Ich drücke dich ganz heftig und trinke zur Feier des Tages deiner Rückkehr ins Blogland einen Schluck (Tee, Wasser oder so) auf dein ganz persönliches Wohl.
Ganz ganz liebe Grüße

Well, it's good to know you'll reveal anything with a little torture. So, no secrets for you. Seriously though, so glad you're coming through this ordeal without permanent damage. Just want you to know, you've been missed a lot. Incidentally, that card is drop-dead gorgeous.

So great to have you back creating again, Cornelia! Love the contrast of the rich gold embossing and strong colours against the vellum.

Bedazzled with your card, Cornelia! You've captured the images/colours of what comes to my mind when I think of Arabian Nights...utterly stunning! Congratulations on having this published...WOW!

Shona Chambers said...

Wow Cornelia, this fits the Arabian Nights theme perfectly. Its so dramatic and I love the colours with the gold. I hope all is going well with your procedures and your nearly finished with them all. I can't imagine what you've gone thru of late but can't wait for you to be 100% better again!!
