Good Evening to you All!
I must admit to being a bit stumped at this weeks challenge on Less is More. It`s theme week and we have been asked to use a charm on our CaS cards. I`ve come to the conclusion that I`m the only person in the whole of the crafting world that has never put a charm on her cards. I keep looking at them and thinking I ought to buy some but never get round to it. So...what to do...
I did have one thing that could have passed for a charm but it is a bit vintage-y and won`t really go with CaS.
Then I had a flash of inspiration ( that doesn`t happen very often). A couple of Christmases ago, Alan bought me a bracelet and some charms to put on it and I`ve never got around to taking them to the jewellers to get put on. I`m not really a jewelry person so they`ve been put away in the depths of a cupboard. Anyway I raked them out to see if there was anything I could use and...Eureka!
As soon as I saw this charm a sentiment popped into my head, all I had to do was match it up with a stamp and I was off. This is what I came up with...
The sentiment is computer generated.
The stamp is Inkadinkado Beside the sea (I think) stamped in Versacolor Brown.
I threaded the charm onto some gold cord and thats it, Simples!
I`m really chuffed with this one but I think I`ll be dismantling it and keeping the charm. And I will get round to having them all fitted one day.
One more thing before I go.
Ruby had her operation yesterday. Cheryl was told to ring the hospital on wednesday if they hadn`t heard anything, which she did,and was told to take Ruby in on thursday. She was to have her blood checked again and if it was still low she would have to have another bout of chemo but if it was ok they would operate at lunch time on friday.
Ruby`s blood test came back normal so the op went ahead a little later than planned. Five hours later she was back on the ward and, although a bit groggy, was talking away.
They have removed one of her kidneys and the tumour and the scan she had last week shows that the ones she has in her lungs and stomach have shrunk so the chemo is working. You cannot imagine the relief we all feel right now. We know she has a long way to go and has to endure lots more chemo but she`s getting there.
I knew what was happening when I last posted but decided not to say anything so as not to tempt fate. Now I want to shout from the roof tops. YIPPEE!
Once again thank you all for your positive comments and prayers. I`m convinced they`ve made a massive difference:)
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
