Simply Less is More # 216

Hi there, I`m popping in with a quick post for this weeks Simply Less is More Challenge . It`s theme week and the theme is to CaSE one of the DT cards.
I`ve chosen to CaSE Chrissies inspiration card.

This is my interpretation of it,

I sponged some white linen card with Spun Sugar DI then stamped my flowers ( Flourishes)
I made a mask with a post it before stamping my text (Indigo Blu) with Memento London Fog.
The flowers are coloured a deeper pink using Spectrum Noir pens.
I trimmed the panel to fit the cut across to make into a tile.

We`ve had a rather eventful week this week with water leaks galore from our bathroom.. We have a toilet with a push button flush system and the push bit broke about 3 months ago. Alan fitted a new one but unbeknown to us it must have been leaking slowly ever since. We discovered this leak when it started dripping through the dining room ceiling just before we went to bed. He sorted that out but then on wednesday he decided that he`d replace the floorboards that were a bit chewed up and promptly hammered a floorboard nail through the radiator pipe. I was in the loft and by the time I got downstairs there was water pouring off the light fitting and directly onto my new dining table. A frantic 10 minutes later we had 2 buckets and a bowl catching drips a soggy towel from the table.
After replacing the damaged pipe and turning the water back on we had another dripping. The connector at the other side of the radiator had been disturbed and was leaking slightly. Sorted that out and heaved a huge sigh of relief.
This afternoon he went up to lay the new laminate flooring and had to take the handbasin out to lay under the pedastel instead of cutting around it and twisted another connector causing yet another leak. I finished up nearly standing on my head turning screws to cut off the water while Alan held the wash basin up with one hand while disconnecting the taps with the other.
Do any of you remember "Some Mothers do have `em? Think that and Laurel & Hardy and you have some idea what my weeks been like.

Thanks for popping...Lynne xxx
