Less is More # 86

Good afternoon All!

The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is  a nice easy one. We are to take three challenge from the past 85 weeks and combine them to make a card. I`ve chosen;
Wk 15...Embossing
Wk 23...Something with legs
Wk 55...Punches or die cuts

Since she was a small child Angie has always been passionate about monkeys so this little cutie from Digistamp Boutique 
fit the bill perfectly.
I`ve embossed the banners with Woodgrain, Swirls and Swiss Dots EF. I`ve also used Dies to make the inverted `V`.
The monkey obviously has legs and I`ve used Spellbinders Circle Dies for the image and the sentiment.
The sentiment is computer generated.

On friday 28th september the school that Ruby attends and which her Mum is a teaching assistant at, is joining in with the Macmillan Cancer Trust Big Coffee Morning fundraising day. The headmaster has also added Candlelighters trust to the list as they donate to Macmillan too and also because Ruby and another pupil from the school are receiving care through Candlelighters.
He has also kindly allowed me to hold a Handmade Card stall to raise funds. I`m really looking forward to it, not only because it should be a fun day but it will give me some feedback as to what people are looking for (hopefully) for future fundraising days.
So, I`m frantically adding inserts to cards already made, trying to work out what type of cards I`m lacking and might need and making up boxes for them all.
I`ll let you know how we get on next week.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  4. Hiya viv, love the card............. I too am holding a coffee morning for macmillan this friday. My father died several months ago, my nan died of cancer and my very good friends brother is in the latter stages of his life with cancer, so this is for them. We too are frantically making up cards and handmade gifts to sell on the day and like your family, are hoping to raise lots of money for this worthwhile cause. Good luck with your coffee morning and I hope that we all do exceptionally well. Love to Ruby...... Sue (littlebee)
