Update on Eye Prob ,Butterflies and Button Birthday card

This is fairly long post update on my eye problem so if not interested please scroll down to my creations for today!
Good Morning and have to say bit cooler this morning which is nice .Dont get me wrong i love the hot weather just doesnt help my ME.Well yesterday went back to see the Consultant ,as you know was going last wednesday after having tests but their words of the receptionist she Cocked up!Couldnt believe my ears when she came out with that line!Well yesterday i got seen and what realy was good wasnt the same reg it was actually the Consultant that in it self makes you wonder...
Anyways the Medical student had to get history and present my case .It was great as i was aware more as he was explaining things to her i understood helps when your a nurse but have to say cant stand anything to do with eyes never did more than a day when training that was enough last me a life .Which is more than the lady reg did she just had no bedside manner and just said when i first went 2 weeks ago that it was not an infection.
Now i must say i wish it was!Yes doesnt look like good news but im staying positive ,havent told the girls as want to be sure of the results.They both worriers anyway .Well they are unsure wether i will get my sight back just waiting game but it hasnt improved.I now have to go for Brain scan(MRI)Because it is to do with my Optic Nerve the Problem which (has caused pain loss sight rt eye)is part of the Brain.Two things he said thta can cause this,the first thing he thinks i have MS(another couple letters to go along with needs the Brain Scan to Rule out a Tumour .So what turned out to be a simple wee pain around my eye and feeling of pressure i thought could have been infection has turned out to be more than i bargained for.So they will ring me today to confirm when my brain scan is and then i have to go back and see Hay(the consultant first name terms days from scan so all moving pretty darn quick!So i will just have to stay positive and carry on as "Norm"My worst fear and which would upset me is not being able to craft would you beleive!?Please pop back tomorrow as i have some sweet stuff for you to celebrate my girls birthdays so be sure to check back!!!
Anyways enough of that youve not come here to hear my woes but see my creations .I cant beleive it myself 2nd card in a matter of days using purple.I never have used purple dont ask why just dont know not colour im that fond of.So certainly shock to the system never know may get to like it.
This card feels so summery especially with this lovely weather we are having in the UK at the moment.
I have made this birthday card for my friend who's birthday is the beginning of June.I hate June have soooo many birthdays all at the beginning and within days of each other.This year i started early and have only 3 to go outta 15 plus fathers day is amongst them too.Anyways i have entered this card inot the following Challenges:
