Simply Less is More # 117

Happy saturday everyone!

Before I show you my cards for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge. 
I have some news that I`m bursting to tell the world.

Ruby is Cancer Free!
Woohoo! They got the results of the CT scan yesterday and it`s gone. Lots of tests and check ups for the future but, oh wow, this is the best news ever. I want to thank everyone for their support over the last 14 months. The power of positive thinking is really immense. Thank you.

Right, back to normality.
This weeks challenge is a sketch by Jen. Lovely and simple.

 As I`m in such a sunny mood today I thought a bright sunny card was just the ticket.
I used bright yellow card for my base.
I stamped my image, from Hobbycraft, in Versacolor canary and heat embossed with clear EP.
The sentiment is by Personal Impressions.
 My second card is a bit more grown up and I think it would be a good one to send to a man.
White Linen card base. I cut a panel and sponged inks to represent grass and sky ( Memento Olive Grove and New Sprout and Versa color Baby Blue and Cyan)
I stamped my grasses in Versafine Onyx Black.
 The sentiment is PTI Autumn Abundance. 

My last card is one that I should have made months ago when Cheryl and Darren were having dark days. Instead I think I`ll keep it in the craft room as a reminder of just how strong the human spirit can be.
Sentiment done on the comp and the Gold Ribbon is for Childhood Cancer.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
