@#S!


I mad a card although it was bit rushed because yesterday didn't go quite according plan but more about that later.
I decided to use this High Hopes chap who had been sitting in my coloured images for a while and the Less is More sketch was perfect for him.
First off I place some clouds on my card and placed a piece a paper in a straight across some of the them and the card. Blended some blue ink so you get an impression of clouds.
The I used the MFT fence for him to sit on and the grass border to ground the fence so that it wasn't floating in the air.
The sentiment I found in the Simon Says Stamps Oh Ship stamp set.


First of all my empty out house is now full of bricks keeping warm with at heater! Apparently builders are having to dry out their bricks which are so wet at the moment that they can't be used so we are nursemaiding them.
But this was overshadowed by my Dad being not so good and we went to spend some of the afternoon with him. It seems that there is a kidney problem and the doctor is coming out today to see him. After a chat with my SIL she is going to ask for a social service assessment since we feel he is not coping well.
