Hello and a Happy Sunday All!
Are we all getting into the Christmas Spirit? The weather is certainly feeling Christmassy, it`s flippin` freezing here today. I`m sure we`ll get snow soon. Roll on spring lol.
As it`s the first week of the month it`s a colour challenge at Less is More. This time we are to use GREEN.
Mandi and Chrissie have been kind to us this week, you can`t get much more festive than green can you?
I started with a 5x5 white card base, cut a white panel slightly smaller and matted it onto dark green card.
I used my Chocolate Baroque ( Elusive Images) Damask Delights background stamp, stamped in green ink and embossed using Evergreen EP then cut two of the baubles.
The sentiment is by Creative Expressions also stamped and embossed in green.
The baubles are raised using foam pads and I`ve added some gold cord ( `cos I didn`t have any green).
I was going to add a bow to the tops of the baubles but I haven`t any thin green ribbon and I didn`t want to use another colour. Still I`m quite pleased with it.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I`d had to go for blood tests at the doctors. I originally went because I`ve been getting pain in my hips after walking some distance and standing at work. The doctor said he thought it was arthritis and after getting me into some quite painful wrestling manoeuvres ( honestly, knees on chest and wrenched from side to side) he confirmed it but decided I needed an MOT starting with the blood tests. When I went back for the results, he told me there was good news and bad news. The bad news...my blood pressurs high, my cholesterol is high and my thyroid has crashed. The good news is my arthritis is osteo and not rheumatoid. Such a lovely man lol. Nothing too serious that can be controlled with medication but...it is now official...my body is a wreck lol.
Oh the joys of getting older!
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
