A proper miserable and very wet March day today. Mind you after the mild winter we really do need the rain (honestly) and what better excuse for staying in and crafting.
It`s week 57 at Simply Less is More, and as it`s the first challenge of the month, it`s a colour challenge. This week we are to use, NEUTRALS.
We are in the (very slow) process of changing our home decor from totally neutral and adding a bit of colour so I`m heartily sick of beiges and browns but hey ho this is a card...it`s different.
Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card this weekend, my daughter in laws grandma died suddenly on thursday, so I`m using the challenge for a card to send to the family.
I made two, similar cards and can`t decide which one to send. I might let you make my mind up for me.
The stamp is hero Arts Elegant Weeds stamped inVersafine Onyx black.
The base card is slightly off white.
A quick Ruby update,
Ruby had a blood transfusion last monday as she is very aneamic (probably spelt wrong) but it is nothing to worry about, and she came home on Tuesday. She`s coping brilliantly with the chemo at the moment and is back to her cheeky self and is getting spoiled rotten. Yesterday her Mum& Dad took her to the park to feed the ducks and she had a great time just being out in the fresh air.
At the moment she`s doing everything the doctors predicted but she has another dose of chemo tomorrow, this time with more drugs added and we have been warned that that`s probably when her hair is likely to start falling out. Luckily I think she`s too young to let it bother her too much.
My middle one Angie, was always the tom boy of the family and often got mistaken for a boy when she was younger, still does come to think of it sometimes lol. I used to call her my inbetweenie.
With that in mind, and because she`s not at all bothered what anyone else thinks, Angie is organising a sponsored head shave to raise funds for the Candlelighters appeal. Photographs will be posted.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
