Today was a lovely session at Clarity Cumbria. We started off by making a foam background - then went on to making a concertina style card - its a lovely design. Here's my version:
This is the front -- I decided to make this for my sister who is moving into a new house any day now.
This is a second flap that you open before the main focus in the middle.
This is the main feature and the open sides.
And a close up of the central picture.
After Lunch we stencilled and stamped onto our foam backgrounds.
Finally we used the wee trees and wee foliage stamps to create this last card - I had to finish it off once i got home - we all had to cut and run because of the snow.
So that was what I did today - when I got in the back door - this is what greeted me - the girls had been very busy with their nana putting this together.
Looks fabulous - can't wait to try a little bit.
Finally an update on my dad. Firstly the good news. The oncologist thinks the tumour in his liver hasn't changed size in 4 weeks - its possible its benign. They offered him a biopsy but even if it is cancerous they doubt my dad would be strong enough for either surgery or chemo so we think the biopsy is a bad idea. He will return in three months to have another scan to check on the tumour size.
However, his mobility is very limited. He had to go back into hospital on Thursday as he fell at home and couldn't move. He should be coming back out again on Monday with carers in place 4 times daily. we'll see how that goes.
Take care and I look forward to hearing what you make of todays post!
