Happy Sunday Afternoon All!
The weather here is positively springlike. Warm and sunny, the washings gently wafting in the breeze, what more could a girl want? Well lots actually but getting the laundry dry outside will do for now lol. Simple pleasures!
Got lots to get through today but I`ll try to keep it short and sweet.
First off, I`d like to say a huge welcome to my new followers, Darnell,Kym Lainey and Olelly. Thank you for choosing my little blog to follow.
Then I`d like to thank Mandi and Chrissie for picking me as the february winner on Less is More. I am chuffed to bits and still walking around with a big grin on my face. Also a thanks for the mention of Ruby on the site.
Speaking of Ruby, she is still coping really well with the chemo. She had her second lot on Monday and was a bit whiney (?) and clingy on Tuesday but by wednesday was back to her normal self. I just hope the tumour is responding as well as she is.
Last weekend she wanted to feed the ducks so Mum and Dad took her to the park.
I also want to say a massive
to you all, not only for the fantastically generous donations to the Candlelighters appeal but for all your lovely comments, the good wishes and support, they really mean the world to us.
You really are THE BEST.
Right after all that waffle, I`d better show you some cards hadn`t I?
Mandi and Chrissie want, not only a one layer card but with script this week at Less is More.
Now one layer cards don`t hold the terror that they once did with me but I did have a scratching the head moment with the script.
Apart from some Christmas stamps I only have one small script stamp so I`ve gone with that one for my first card.
The tulip is a digi stamp from, I think, Fred She Said, printed straight onto the card and then onto copy paper to make a mask. The script stamp is by My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus set stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. The tulip is coloured with Promarkers and my new Spectrum Noir pens ( brilliant).
I was quite happy with this one until I stamped the sentiment (Flourishes Tag Lines) and I think I put too much pressure on.
My second card is really very simple.
The stamp is by The Stampman, Aspects of Design 1 Floral set which I`ve had for years. I stamped it in Versafine Black and heat embossed in clear EP. Coloured with markers and thats it.
Not sure if the Chinese symbols are classed as script though.
I`m sure Mandi and Chrissie will let me know.
Well if your still here after all that...Well done and thank you lol
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
