I`m back from my break feeling very relaxed and recharged. More about that later.
First can I welcome my new followers Bernie and Lou. Thank you for choosing my blog to follow.
It`s theme week at Less is More and this week we are to make a card using " Something Shiny".
Well I may be back but my mojo is still on holiday I think. I so wanted to create an artistic masterpiece this week but it wasn`t to be.This is what I mustered up,
For my first card I ran some silver mirri card through the cuttlebug using my Leafy branch EF and cut it out with a labels 4 die.
I then made a frame using white card and 2 labels 4 die.
The butterfly is made using a MS punch and some glossy pink paper.
The sentiment is by Flourishes.
For this one I used some ivory hammered card for the base.
Cut a rectangle of gold embossed card and then made an ivory frame with 2 rectangle dies.
The leaves are punched out of some green mirri card.
The sentiment is by Personal Impressions.
I think this is more a masculine card.
This time I made a panel for the front of the card and stamped the image in clear embossing ink and embossed it with Detail Silver EP.
The sentiment is by Flourishes also embossed in silver.
I added some irridescent gems to finish.
Hopefully my mojo will show it`s face and I`ll have another go during the week.
Well my holiday came and went very quickly (as they do) but we had a wonderful time. Didn`t do a lot but I did manage to read a whole book which is a luxury for me. We also had a trip out to Richmond in North Yorkshire. I read Peter Robinson`s D I Banks books and it was great to be able to see the places he describes in his books. The scenery up there is beautiful too being on the edge of the Dales.
The weather wasn`t too bad. Not exactly sunbathing weather but the only rain we had was late thursday night so that was a bonus.
Ruby has finished her radiotherapy now and had a bit of an adventure coming home on thursday. Now I`m not very technical when it comes to engines but apparently the turbo thingy went in Darrens car on the motorway. He managed to get it onto the hard shoulder but not before it spewed out clouds of thick black smoke from the exhaust. A passing motorist must have thought it was on fire and called the fire brigade who stayed with them until the tow truck arrived and let Ruby sit in the fire engine. Mum Cheryl is dead jealous but Ruby was more impressed with the break down lorry because it was pulling the car.
So Ruby had an adventure but Mum and Dad nearly had a heart attack I think. Not only that but the engine`s completely siezed so they now have the extra expense of a new (to them) car.
Three days of Chemotherapy next week and then I think it`s a scan to see if the radiotherapy has done it`s job. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
