Simply Less is More # 199

                                     Craft Mojo

                                                 not seen for about 3/4 weeks
                                                 If found please return to this blog

Hi there,
            Well I`m here but my mojo certainly isn`t. I seem to have lost the ability to make a half decent card.
I have tried, I made cards for last week and the week before at Simply Less is More
but they were so pants I didn`t post them. I do wish it would come back. I miss my card making.
I have managed a card for this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More which is titled
                                                       JINGLE ALL THE WAY.
not 100% pleased with this one but this is what I`ve made,

I`ve used a Pink Petticoat 
Tiny Treasures for Christmas image, coloured with Promarkers and cut out with a Tag die from Die-namics.
The papers are from Do Crafts cut and fish tailed with a square nestie.
I`ve added a jingle bell from my stash and some tiny coloured gems here and there.
I`m going to have another go at this one and try to get my placement a bit better. Seems like a good design for batch making if I can get it right.

Ruby was sent home from LGI last week now the chemo is into her system and she has been weaned off the steroids.It`s unbelievable the difference the steroids have made. She gained almost 4 kgs in 5 weeks and it was such a shock to see her. She didn`t look like my Ruby anymore. They have told us that the weight will go almost as quick as it came but the chemo is effecting her leg muscles again which makes it difficult to walk and on friday she developed a high temperature so at the moment she`s in isolation at Hull Royal. Hopefully the blood cultures will come back tomorrow and Ruby can go home and have antibiotics there. She`s having a pretty rough time at the moment but is coping well and, as ever, is cheerful and giving the staff plenty to laugh about.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
