Less Is more 19 one layer "In the frame"

It's Limette day again!

I hope you have had a better week than I have it's been terrible.

On the way to my Aunt's funeral yesterday I had a call from my son to say he is going to Afghan in August even though he has a broken and arthritic foot! I new it was coming and of coarse it is his job. Surely they should sort his foot out first.

We got back home tonight to find out a familly friend has passed away.

I think I am in shock.

Thank goodness for card making I really don't no what I would do without it!

My first card is A5

I used the adorable teddy stamp. I have had it years and havn't used it for ages.

I coloured it in with Whispers pens.

Second card

A6 tent. I used the Cuttlebug flourish stamped the rose with Brilliance ink pads.
I'm off to bed now, exhausted I will try and catch up with everyone tomorrow.

Thanks for calling! xx Jan
