Simply Less is More # 224

Hello there,
I`ll start by welcoming my two new followers, thank you so much for choosing my little blog to follow.

Right, at 4`o`clock on thursday morning I woke up convinced that it was Simply Less is More Challenge day
and that the title of the challenge was Arctic Swimmers. I laid and worried for half an hour, wondering what it really meant and when I`d decided that it could be seals and penguins I panicked that I didn`t have any stamps that fit.
Then I realised it was a dream and I`d wasted half an hour worrying over nothing. Sad or what???

So, with that in mind I was quite pleased to see that this weeks challenge has the title,
                                                      HELLO SUNSHINE

I`ve used a scrap of blue chevron patterned card ( Pink Petticoat) to make the tag using a Die- namics die.
I made a mask using a circle die to make the halo around the sun, using decorative chalks then cut another circle from bright yellow card for the sun.
The cloud is a Memory Box die.
The sentiment is computer generated.

Ruby has been back to school this week. She is doing afternoons only at the moment but has managed a full week, the first for almost nine months and she`s loving it.The other kids have been really kind and welcoming so that`s been a great help.
At the beginning of the week she had her reading and maths SATs tests and got full marks for both. We are all so proud of her, especially considering how much schooling she has lost in the past couple of years.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
