Less is More # 61...Lucky Dip

Good Morning All and a Happy Sunday to you!

As yesterday was the 5th saturday in the month, we have a Lucky Dip at Less is More. This time it`s a fabulous inspiration piccy,
My first reaction was to go literal and use my Gerbera daisy stamps but I seem to have used them such a lot just lately. Then I thought, seeing as Easter is only next week I`d use the Lenten Rose set from Flourishes.
This is what I`vecome up with;

I started with a sheet of A4 white card and downloaded a Pink Petticoat Quatrofoil DP in Smoke on the PC.
After cropping the DP and choosing the position of it onto my card I printed it off then cut it to make an A5 tent fold card.
I stamped my image onto another piece of white card and coloured it with markers then cut it out.
The image is raised with foam pads.
The sentiment is a new one for me that I recieved from my lovely friend and blog buddy Tara  
to celebrate our 1st anniversary at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge. It`s from a sentiment set from There She Goes, stamped in versafine Onyx

We have finally set a date for daughter Angie to have her head shaved, 14th April, so only a couple of weeks.
She isn`t going completely bald ha ha, but is having a very short buzz cut ( no 2).
Photographs will be posted before, during and after.
Ruby continues to do well although she had a triple dose of chemo on Monday and was a bit off colour on tuesday. Next week she has another dose of chemo on monday followed by a scan on wedneday so we all have everything crossed in anticipation. And then the following week is her operation to remove the kidney and tumour.
We are all still feeling very positive about the outcome but ofcourse there`s always that element of doubt at the back of your mind. Thank you all once again for the lovely comments, Ruby`s mum and dad read them all and take great comfort from them.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
