Less is More # 71

Hi there,
Phew what a week. For those of you that don`t want boring to death with my waffles I`ll get straight onto my card. Those of you with a bit of spare time can carry on if you wish, lol.

The challenge this week at Less is More is a one layer card using a flourish. Yippee! I love flourishes.
This is what I came up with,
Quite simple, I used a white tent fold card base.
Used decorative chalks and a sponge along one corner then stamped my image from Heidi Swapp in Memento Rose Bud over it.
The sentiment is by Flourishes ( very apt) stamped in versafine Onyx Black.
I`ve added a couple of clear gems to finish. Simples!

Well my fuzzy head/head cold morphed into tonsilitis on monday evening. I lost tuesday completely, sleeping most of the day, which is not like me at all. I really don`t like taking to my bed but I felt so awful. By wednesday I was much better but it left me feeling really weak and feeble and sorry for myself. It wasn`t really until yesterday that I felt properly better, it really knocked me for six.
So all that complaining about working the bank holiday and now I wish I`d felt well enough to lol. I did work monday though so I`m not a total skiver.
Another downside was that I felt as much like crafting as I did flying to the moon. All that time off and not one card made, tut tut.
Last night we made up for it and had a night out.
It was my son`s footy teams presentation night so we went along to show our support. Hull City legend Dean Windass was invited to give out the prizes and the first one was to the winner of the bus stop ( a sort of raffle) which just happened to be me and Alan Yaayy.
Our Nathan was given a medal for his part in the youth team and the look on his face when he met his idol was a picture, bless him.
We had a brilliant night and can`t wait til next year now. I`ll post pics when I get them.
Tomorrow we`re off to our caravan until friday so I won`t be posting anything all week. How I`m going to manage with no internet for 5 day`s I really don`t know but I`m sure I`ll cope lol.
Right that`s quite enough waffle from me, I`ve still got a million things to do before tomorrow so I`d better get a wriggle on.

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xxx
