LIM week 56 "Don't Scrap it"

Hi everyone. Well what a difference a day makes yesterday I was so thrilled my cards were on Create & Craft  Stamps By Chloe. If you would like to look at the samples see earlier posts.
Today we are down to earth with a bump. 
We had a call at 6am to say OH Nephew was in a coma and things are looking very grim indeed. He's had a massive brain Hemorrhage & a heart attack.
We have been at the hospital most of the day. He is on life support and they will see what tomorrow brings.
Sorry to offload but could you please spare some positive vibes for Garry?
I had to make a card for my lovely Niece who is 30 next Saturday. She prefers Cas cards so I made my LIM card for her today. Kathryn is off to New York in a few days for her birthday. 
Lucky lass I wish I was going with her. 

Less is More "don't scrap it. In other words use your scraps.
I cut the Spellbinders shape out with a scrap of white card & the flower is cut from scrap of paper which was a free download from the Shabby Princess. Sentiment is printed onto vellum I also used a vellum insert. Image is a free stamp from Creative Stamper. 
Thanks for calling today, hugs
xx Jan
