Simply less is More # 115

Good afternoon all!

My but it`s a blustery day today. I spent most of yesterday afternoon planting seeds in trays ready for when the warmer weather finally arrives. I still have some left to do but it`s so windy I`m afraid they`ll blow away. I hope it`s better where you are.
The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is to use a favourite film as inspiration for our cards. Mmm, a tricky one as it`s one layer week too.
I don`t really have a favourite film. When I think of the best family films all I can come up with is Goonies and apart from that I prefer a good psychological thriller. I have nothing in my stamp collection that comes anywhere near.
So after a trawl through the collection I settled on a Peter Rabbit stamp and the film Watership Down.
Yea I know...pushing it a bit aren`t I ? ;-)

Peter Rabbit is by Crafters Companion and I stamped him and then masked him to stamp the bullrushes.
I bought this stamp from a stall at a Ross Papercraft show but it hasn`t got a makers name so I can`t give credit. I stamped it in Memento Olive Grove and used some tiny seed beads for the heads.
These seed beads are sold as nail art and come in a pack of 12 in various gorgeous colours. I got mine from work ( Poundland) for 50p because some thieving toerag had stolen one of the tubes. How low can you get?
The sentiment is from the same Peter Rabbit set.

Quick update on Ruby.
She is doing really well and waiting for the results of her latest blood test to see if she`s ready for her final dose of chemo, yaay!
The day after she came out of hospital the local paper called round to do a follow up after the report on Callie`s hair cut. They did a lovely article on Ruby and on Wilms Tumours. There were also some great pics.
This one has to be my favourite,
Mother and daughter smiling together.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  6. Perfect card Lynne - love the nail art thingies you used, I had some here until I scattered them all over the desk :(

    Great piccie of Ruby and her Mum - here's hoping the blood test is good, she certainly looks so well.

    Just thought, didn't they make a film of Beatrix Potter too? Although Watership Down does it for me anyhow. We live just near there so I'll be watching for little bunnies in blue jackets!

    Hugs, Di xx
