Simply Less is More # 114

Good Morning All!

I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.

Ruby is home from hospital and is doing very well. Her ear infection has cleared up now but not before it spread to her other ear and perforated her ear drum. She was very very poorly for a while because her platelette count was on zero so she had nothing at all to fight the infection with. Thank goodness for antibiotics. Once they kicked in she was soon on her feet and causing havoc in the hospital hee hee.
Me and my other daughter, Angie went to see her on wednesday and when we were leaving Cheryl came down to see us off leaving Ruby alone in the bed. This is what she came back to...

Ruby`s favourite member of staff, Nurse Nicki thought it would be a great idea to let Ruby paint a picture. She had splashed the walls, the bed needed stripping and the frame had to have a wash down. But Ruby was happy so who cares? Lol.
Anyway the point I was getting to is that now Ruby`s treatment is coming to an end ( fingers crossed) Cheryl  needs some thank you cards to give to the many people that have supported them all over the past year and a bit. I thought I might as well make a stash and she can choose any she needs.

The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is a colour challenge, USE LIME AND BLACK,
Here is my Lime and black thank you card,

I made another frame card using a rectangle nestie and stamped some script by Indigo Blu using Versafine Onyx Black.
I`ve added a torn piece of card over some of the script and a Lime ( looks much more lime IRL) die cut from Marianne Designs.
The sentiment is by TSG.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  3. Ruby was obviously having lots of fun - and she even matches your card with the green paint on her hands and head!!! Hope all goes well.

    Your card is wonderful. Love the diecut frame and the text behind the leaves - a great thank you card.

  4. Lol, she certainly looks like she's enjoying herself! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed too.

    Gorgeous thank you card Lynne - has your trademark elegant style!

  5. Hi Lynn,
    Ruby looks so happy with all that paint around her. What magic painting has really and funny how kids paint less and less as they grow older.
    Your card is very elegant as all the others.

  6. Bless her!
    She really looks as though she had fun! That nurse sounds like a real gem too!
    Your card is lovely, that die is a favourite of mine too!
    Thanks so much

  7. LOL...creativity isn't always a neat process. My best wishes to Ruby and your card is real stand-out in the gallery.

  8. your card is beautiful and so is your little granddaughter! Best wishes for her and your family.

  9. Great card Lynne! Ruby's painting skills are much better than mine - an not so sure about the green stripe on her little head tho!!!! XX

  10. Lynne, I popped in because your beautiful card caught my eye in the simply less is moore gallery. Your card is fabulous, but Ruby is gorgeous and oh.... what fun she must have had. I love that she is covered in paint. The nurse is a gem. I am sure that Cheryl will really appreciate the beautiful card you made for her stash

  11. What a great picture of Ruby, Lynne! I'm sorry she (and all of you) had to go for another loop on the roller coaster, but I'm glad she's back on solid ground again! Cheryl is so fortunate to have your artistic skills for making stunning thank you cards. This one for LIM is just that! I love it!!

  12. Love your card.

    What a wonderful picture of one happy girl :)I hope all turns out well.

  13. Lovely card Lynne - more important though is that Ruby had an absolute ball - Hope the news is good! xxx

  17. Such a beautiful card Lynne and how lovely to see Ruby looking so well.....and so messy he he! :) Viv xx

  18. Love your card design, Lynne! The lettering and frame and die cut give it beautiful dimension. Ruby looks so delighted! I'll keep you and Ruby in my thoughts and prayers.

  19. I totally missed this post Lynne - sorry! Your card is brilliant but the photo of Ruby had me chuckling to myself. That is some fabulous nurse prepared to clean up a mess to let her have a little play time - wish there were more of them around!


Please leave a comment, it just makes me feel good :)
