Less is More # 91

Good Evening All!

Well we were rudely awakened at about 2:00 am by hail and sleet pelting the bedroom window this morning. After snuggling further under the duvet and going swiftly back to sleep I awoke at a normal hour to find my world transformed. White slippery stuff everywhere. The walk to my dads was pretty treacherous especially as part of it is uphill. It keeps having a go too although it`s more sleet than anything else.
And it`s only October. What happened to autumn? Brrr.

I`d like to welcome two new followers, Andrei and Leslie. Thank you for choosing my blog to follow.

Right, on to this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More. We have a sketch this week. Haven`t had many of those,
I had an idea in my head all morning but when I actually made the card it is nothing like I imagined it to be.

Cream hammered card cut to 6x6 square.
I made a frame from brown card and cut 3 apertures using nested squares.
I stamped the leaf ( PTI Turning a New Leaf) in Memento Olive into each of the apertures.
The sentiment is Layers of Color stamped in Versafine Onyx.
I made the flowers from some yellow paper using a daisy punch and a hole punch and brown card for the middles. They are supposed to look a bit Sunflowery-ish.
Not too sure about this one so might have another go later.
Apoligies for the rubbish pic. I`ve tweaked and edited it so much but can`t get it better than it is.

Just a quick note about Ruby.
She has the chicken pox. Poor little love, she was transfered from Hull Royal to Leeds general yesterday evening and is now in isolation. Last night she was given a blood transfusion and is on IV anti biotics and anti virals. Obviously with all the treatment she`s been having they have to keep a special eye on her but at the moment she`s ok. Not well at all but ok.
What a way to spend half term eh.

I`ll keep you up to date with whats happening. Tomorrow there`s another Ross Papercraft Show in Hull so as long as I`m not snowed in, I shall be popping along. Hopefully I`ll get some new goodies and might get inspired to start on some Christmas cards :-))
 Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
