A Birthday Card

Hello All!
 A really quick post from me today as I`ve got some sort of bug. I feel much better today than I did yesterday but still a bit fuzzy headed and achy.
Last wednesday it was a work colleagues birthday. I didn`t find out until  tuesday so it was a bit of a rush job and then I had to be devious and ask in a very roundabout sort of way, what her favourite colour was. I think you`ll guess the answer to this when you see the card I made lol.

Not the most imaginative card I`ve ever made but Billie was pleased with it.
I used a Damask EF from Crafts too matted onto some red card leaving a very thin border.
The flowers are made from the same red card cut out with a scalloped circle nestie and some red brads.
The sentiment is computer generated cut out with a labels 4 die and matted onto another die cut.

We had a bit of scare with Ruby over the weekend. Nothing too serious but when the results of her last blood test came back, her red cell count was low so it was touch and go whether or not they could go ahead with this weeks chemo. Another blood test on monday showed all was well so the chemo went ahead. Apart from that Ruby is fine. Her hair is almost gone now but doesn`t seem to be bothering her at all.
I`ve got an easter bonnet to decorate for her for when the weather gets warmer so that should keep both of us amused lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
