Less is more.....................

Hellooooooo.... I have not blogged for a while as life has been hectic here with Mum going into hospital  on 2nd November for a pacemaker to be fitted 2 days before her 90th Birthday!!!!  She was out  the same day very tired and very sore and came to stay here, then on Friday 4th it was her 90th and her brother and wife travelled over to spend time with her staying overnight, then Saturday my  Daughter and Son and partners including Grandson and new puppy all arrived.........phew!  Mom enjoyed all the fuss and attention and the puppy!!  Sunday was a day of rest for us all,  visitors had gone and we caught up with Strictly and Merlin.... and slept.   Mum is now back home and today I managed to get into my little room of craft and play.

Here is my card which I made for Less is More challenge Red and Orange

I have used Stampin' Up! stamp set Baroque Motifs, Inks SU Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobler, 2 of the flowers were inked up with tangerine tango and the lightly rocked onto the cherry cobler to give a more textured flower the 3rd was stamped in tangerine tango only. Words were stamped in Basic Black with Whimsical Words Set.

Here are a couple of photos from the weekend Mum opening cards

This is the only picture I could get of Puppy as he didn't sit still long enough and all the others are blurred he is only 12 weeks old  and soooooo cute

bye for now
