Simply Less is More # 102

Hello Everyone...I`m back.

...bet you thought I`d disappeared off the  face of the earth didn`t you? I`ll explain the why`s and wherefors after I`ve shared my card for this weeks Less is more challenge.
I can`t believe I`ve missed a whole month of these challenges and after joining in every one since the beginning too. This week Chrissie and Jen want Sports and Exercise and it`s one layer week too.

I got this digi image from Just Inklined ages ago but this is the first time I`ve used him. Love the look of determination on his face.
Coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens. The sentiment is computer generated.
I had my bike stolen from the shed about 5 years ago and I do miss it, not that I raced or even pedalled very fast but it`s a darn sight faster than walking.

Anyway, onto my unexpected absence. Just after I posted my last card I had a really bad dizzy spell that lasted about 10 minutes but felt like hours. It scared the hell out of me, especially as I felt quite light headed for a few days afterwards.So I went to visit the doctor and my blood pressure was sky high. She`s given me pills and after further tests it`s coming down nicely so all`s well. The trouble was, my mojo took fright and ran for the hills so not much crafting was done at all.
Then the weekend between Christmas and new year both me and Alan picked up a dose of Norovirus ( gastroenteritis). You really didn`t want to be in our house that weekend lol. So that`s it really. I decided to rearrange the craftroom to try to bring Mr Mojo back which took a lot longer than it should have and I think it`s starting to work. At least I`m actually sitting in the craftroom now so fingers crossed.

That just leaves me to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas too. Sorry it`s a bit late.

Can I be a boring grandma and show you this pick of Ruby at Christmas?
We bought her the nurse outfit and a medical kit as she`s decided that she wants to be a nurse when she grows up. I got quite emotional when she reeled off the name of every piece of equipment in the medical kit and she knew what to do with it all, bless her.
Look at the tree. Ruby decorated it and that`s as far as she could reach with the tinsel. Love it!

Right waffle over. I`m so pleased to be back and I wont leave it so long next time.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Welcome back to blogland Lynne - I'm sorry to hear that you have been having a rough time. Ruby looks adorable in her nurse's outfit - it's understandable that you felt emotional. I do hope she is still improving.

    Your sports card is brilliant - I bought that image last summer for my eldest Grandson's birthday card and he loved it (he's mad about bikes).

    I hope that 2013 will be a happy and healthy year for you and yours.
    Hugs, Sylvia xx
