Good Morning All!

At last I`m back after being MIA for the past week or so. It`s been a topsy turvy sort of week for me. As you know Mum was very ill for a time but the good news is that, hopefully, she is being discharged from the hospital today. I seem to have spent most of last week on the phone sorting things out with various family members and keeping up to date with Mums progress. The doctors still don`t what caused the allergy but she`s over it now. The only problem with that is that now we have to keep a very close eye on her in case it happens again. For now though I`m very relieved.

On to my lastest post.
 This is the inspiration for this weeks Challenge at the Play Date Cafe 

We are to use Green and Melon instead of the usual Christmas Red.
Ofcourse, as usual I have no Melon so I`ve used Versa Color Orchid instead.
As this weeks challenge is sponsered by one of my favourite UK stamp companies, Elusive Images, I`ve used their products on my card.

The green DP is from the Artylicious  Seasons Greetings CD.
I`ve matted that onto some pink card.
The stamped image is a beautiful floral swirl Christmas tree from the Deck the Halls stamp set from EI, stamped in versa colour orchid and heat embossed.
I`ve added a ribbon and bow.
The sentiment is from Creative Expressions and is also stamped in orchid and heat embossed., then punched with a tag punch.

Well thats all from me for today. Hopefully I`ll be able to get into the swing of things again and have some more posts during the week.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
