Happy Easter Everyone.
I hope you`re enjoying the long weekend and not eating too much chocolate hee hee.
As march has 5 saturdays we have a lucky dip week at Simply Less is More and this time we are asked to use SCALLOPS on our creations.
This should have been a walk in the park really but I had trouble coming up with something out of the ordinary. See what you think,
Dp is Crafty Impressions Romanza. The upper panel is cut using a Spellbinders Scallop die and then run through with a Crafts Too EF.
I didn`t have any ribbon in the right shade of pink so I`ve coloured some white with a Promarker.
The sentiment is by Flourishes, cut out with a nestie Labels 4 die.
I`ve used a pale peach card base and made a panel with white card which I`ve punched along the long edge with a MS Doily punch.
The sentiment is by Flourishes and the decoupage is from a book by TBZ.
It`s a bit twee but I`m sure someone, somewhere likes twee :-)
Ruby is quite poorly at the moment. She had her penultimate dose of Chemo the week before last and seemed to be doing really well but then developed a temperature which was up and down for a few days. Yesterday Mum noticed some fluid from her ear and she had a high temp so it was off to the the local hospital for tests.
Ruby`s white blood cells are extremely low which means she cannot fight the infection on her own, so she`s had a blood transfusion. This isn`t out of the ordinary as the chemo knocks her bloods down anyway but with a severe ear infection too it has made her poorly this time. She`s on 2 lots of IV antibiotics and will be in hospital for about 5 days.
This morning Ruby insisted on getting out of bed to play as she wasn`t poorly enough for bed but after about 10 minutes admitted defeat and went back to bed. She is one tough cookie and I know she`ll pull through this. Just one more bout of chemo in a couple of weeks and that should be it ( fingers crossed).
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
