Simply Less is More # 242

Hello There,
I think we are catching the last of the decent weather this weekend before the rains come again on monday so I`m hoping to finish sorting the garden out today. Before that though I had to get into the craftroom to make my card for this weeks Simply Less is More Challenge. 
The title of the challenge is TECHNOLOGY.
 Arrrgh, I don`t do technology, I am a technophobe, I can just about manage my blog.
After lots of mulling and deep thought it dawned on me that seeing as I seem to spend half my life on Facebook I could use that for inspiration. This is what I came up with.

This has to be the easiest, quickest card I`ve ever made. Admittedly not a lot of skill involved but I do have a plan for a second, more creative card now that I`ve got my brain in gear.
I downloaded the thumbs up image straight from Google Images and cut it out using a nestie square die.
I cut another slightly larger square and mounted them one onto the other before placing them on my card base.
The sentiment is a Valentine set from Avery Elle, stamped in Versafine Black
I think this sentiment is perfect for the image.

Yesterday morning hubby and I visited Ruby`s school to watch her being presented with a merit badge. She managed 3 full days in the first week back at school and has put in full days all this week apart from wednesday when she had to go to LGI for a check up.
Considering she only had 12% attendance in the whole of last year ( and still passsed all her SATS) she`s doing remarkably well.
Her blood count is stable so her Chemo has been increased to 75%, her antifungal meds have finally finished and things are certainly looking up.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Great card.

  3. Yay for Ruby! I'm so glad they gave her a merit badge! I love your card, it is perfect for the tech age that we live in. I'm with you, I can manage the basics of blogging, but whenever something new comes out (like periscope) I shriek away like it's a big spider!
