I can`t believe it`s four years since the start of the Simply Less is More Challenge.It seems like only a few months since I read on Sarita`s blog about a new challenge about to start and thought I`d give it a whirl. I hadn`t grasped the clean & simple concept and needed a reason not to add ribbons to every thing I made. Four years on and I think I`ve finally grasped it.
Anyway it`s colour week this week being the first saturday of the month and this time it`s to use PINK & GREY.
For my card I`ve use a Penny Black Chevron stencil for the b/g. I tried using my homemade embossing paste but it just made a mess so I sponged some Memento London Fog instead.
The hearts are cut from a Sizzix die set in hot pink except the tiny ones which are punched.
The `Love` word is from Memory Box and grey card. I`ve cut it out 4 times and layered it to give it some depth.
I`ve added some tiny gems to finish.
I was asked to make a non flowery Valentine card and I think this one will fit the bill nicely.
Ruby came home from hospital last saturday just after I`d posted on my blog. We finally got to give her her Christmas presents on Sunday and had a lovely family day together. She is still a bit weak and is having lots of problems with her leg muscles. The chemo she is taking is known to affect the lower legs and ankles and combined with being bed bound for 6 weeks has taken it`s toll. She was measured up for, and later recieved a wheelchair to help her get around and yesterday went for her first physio treatment. She could only manage a couple of steps on her own even with support so the team found her a walking frame and that is much better. The more she uses the frame the easier walking will get so hopefully this is only a temporary glitch. Apart from that everything is fine apart from her Mum and Dad rearranging the house to store over 200 items of medical equipment. Rather them than me .
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
