CraftyCatz challenge 142... Monochromatic

Good morning my lovelies, hope you all had a fab week and are ready for the week-end, our Kids are all breaking up from School today for the SUMMER hols.....Oh the laughing and fun we will have...lol....as they tread a path from there door to mine....you do know I love them really..lol...

Onto the challenge over at CraftyCatz this week, it was chosen by our lovely, talented teamie Linda, and she wants to see..Monochromatic if you please...


We are sponsored by Digital Delights this week ,
and one lucky winner will get to choose 3 images...




Here's my card , now I know there is very little about this card. the image is
from Victoria Case, coloured with Promarkers
Cardstock was randomly stamped with TH Distress ink ,Frayed Burlap
Stamped and cut out the leaves and just brushed lightly with Comic shimmer
Die cut swirls are from my lovely pals, Sue and Tilly, thankyou so much girls
The little tag was also a stamp from the same set think it's an old MME , love it to death for all the little bits and bobs in there...Satin button and ribbon from stash...


OK then, let me fill you in on my week so far...lol...
Well I can't speak now for three days, and it's not getting any easier...I have been 'off colour' as my Mam would've said..lol...for a while, had loads of bloods taken, my legs and feet have been so swollen I could hardly walk, back to Dr I go on Monday to see whats next, my heart seems ok so he said maybe it's Thyroid.....mmmmm...heard this before...in the meantime, I can't go anywhere...and Yesterday was my beloved, only Daughters Graduation , because this year it's a long haul to the Cathedral, guess who could'nt go.......cry, cry and cry all afternoon, well silently....she went off with her little family in the morning and rang to let me know what was going on and how beautiful it was....Oh I feel so devastated, I just can't tell you how much I look forward to this, and I always feel it's my right to be there...lol...she has lots of pics for me, but I am soooo upset....she worked so bloody hard...oh well...she got her BSc upper 2.1 by the way and I am so very proud....
Phew, are you still here...lol...
I'm sure all you Mums will understand....sorry to drive you all nuts with it...lol...
Right I shall go and leave you all in peace.... try and pop over to the challenge blog and see the DT cards, so gorgeous, honestly they are....

I am entering this into the following challenges
CraftyBloggers Network...Anything goes

Thanks for sticking around, take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
