Good Morning All!
Another wet and miserable day up here today. Although I must admit yesterday was positivly glorious. Wall to wall sunshine and so hot. Thursday was my day off work and that was lovely too but friday spoiled it with torrential rain. We were really lucky in Hull as we just missed the really heavy prolonged rain that has caused so much flooding across the UK this year. I think Mother Nature must be menopausal and taking it out on the world.
Some of us have too much rain while others are desperate for it and some of you have excessive heat while others have the heating on. It`s a mad, mad world!
Anyway, enough waffle. On to this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More which is colour week and this time we are to use GOLD on our creations. We can use matt or glossy but it must be obviously gold.
Here is my first card,
I cut it out with a nestie recangle that I elongated to fit the image then made another panel with a larger rectangle using the same technique and adhered them using foam pads.
The sentiment is from Rubbadubbado also embossed in gold EP.
More or less the same method as above but using a Chocolate Baroque Damask stamp this time. No sentiment but it might come in handy for someone who`se emigrating or something ha ha.
Another eventful week in the world of Ruby this last week. On thurday she came out in a rash and was looking quite pale so Cheryl rang Leeds General Infirmary for advice and was told to take her straight to the local hospital for blood tests. Leeds liased with Hull Royal so everything was in control. The blood tests showed that her platelettes were extremely low so had to have an emergency transfusion.
Unfortunately, while they were there Ruby tripped getting off the scales and banged her head on a cupboard, immediately coming out in a huge bruise on her forehead. Apparently it`s the platelettes that make the blood clot and because Ruby`s were so low the staff were worried and sent her for a CT scan.
Anyway alls well that ends well. The scan results came back ok and Ruby`s blood count is back up for now. Her next lot of chemo that was due for next week has been postponed for a week so she can concentrate on getting her blood back to normal naturally and she`s still diving about like a mad thing.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
