Warning...very long ramble at the end of this post :)
Well I think spring has finally arrived. The sun is shining, the winds have gone but, my it`s a bit chilly. Still it`s a lovely feeling to get up to sunshine and to be able to put the washing out to dry. By heck I lead such an exciting life ;)
The challenge this week at Simply Less is More is called CASE IT and we are to take inspiration from either Chrissie`s or Jen`s cards or both if we wish.
I have cased Chrissie for now but hopefully will have the time to case Jen too as they are both fab cards.
This is Chrissie`s card,
I`m still getting my thank you card stash built up so this will come in handy.
Not only am I feeling springlike but I`ve been out in the garden planting tubs up and preparing for seedlings so it`s no surprise really that I had to use a spring flower stamp. I`ve no idea of the make, it`s another I got from a craft fair but I do love it.
The alphabet dies are from Die-Namics.
A Ruby update.
Ruby had her last Chemo session last week, Yaaay!. She has to have lots of tests to see if the treatment has had any side effects and that all her organs are working correctly, and, obviously that the cancer has gone. The worse part is that it`s a nine day wait for the results but we`re all still positive.
Last monday Cheryl, Darren and Ruby had lunch with the Lord Mayor of Hull.
Our Olympic Gold Medal winning boxer Luke Campbell had donated his boxing gloves for Hull City Council to auction off to raise funds for their chosen charity. The man that bought them knows Darren and has been following Ruby`s story in the paper and so has donated one of the gloves to be auctioned again to raise funds for Candlelighters.
They were presented with the glove at a luncheon and, ofcourse the local paper was there too. Ruby is getting a bit fed up of having her photograph taken now. Poor kid, it seems that every where she goes, someone sticks a camera in her face and tells her to smile. On top of that, Lord Mayors Lunches are`nt that interesting when you`re only four and Ruby was getting a bit bored.
A very nice man, who Cheryl thinks was the Mayors assistant decided it would be a good idea to dress Ruby in the Mayors ceremonial gown.
Needless to say they all had a fabulous time and lots of wonderful memories.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
