Lili of the Valley Challenge 108 - Roses



+
Hello everone, just a quick post to say I haven't gone AWOL..... just had a few things to catch up on and we are off to Blackpool tomorrow for a few days break.... so been trying to get stuff organised before we go.  The dog is going to our granddaughters, hope he will be okay, we have never left him before......... he is an old man now at 14......... and then theres Honey the parrot..... daughter is coming in to see to her so hope they both behave!!


Lots of you kind people have enquired about hubby and the little procedure he had last week..... he is okay... he had a colonoscopy and everything looked fine, they took some biopsies the results of which will take a few weeks but nothing to worry about.  He was very nervous of having it done but he was sedated and when I collected him he said he didnt know whey he was worried and he was thrilled to bits because they gave him toast and jam with his coffee, he's easily pleased!! lol!


Well onto my card....... the challenge at Lili of the Valley this week is 'Roses' - an easel card made with a Marianne die......... I love this die, I think its my fave one .... at the moment anyway!  The image has been coloured with Prismas........ lace is from stash, image and sentiment both Lili of the Valley.  Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, of course!  Apologies for the quality of my photos, I think I need a new camera, they look a bit fuzzy to me but then the light wasnt too good today, it was grey and drizzling.


Thats if from me for now, will be back after our well earned weekend break! Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend whatever you are up to.


Hugs,
