On the mend

Less is More time again and it's ONE LAYER WEEK again.

Chrissie and Mandy said " our challenge for this week, IN THE FRAME#19
We would like to see a frame of some sort or something in a frame... we'd like you to be as inventive as you like.
You could doodle, draw, emboss, ink, paint, colour, print, stamp, emboss resist,  mask or any other method you can come up with to get a frame of sorts into your design."

I actually find the one layer cards less difficult than other challenges although I did have to stop myself reaching for the Glossy accents for the sewing machine and I tried a bigger frame that looked silly... So here is a Pink Petticoat image, coloured with promarkers, and orange and green, no turquoise or blue in sight, Bo-Bunny buttons, orange embrodery thread, a computer generated dashed box, took 20 mins from start to finish, a record for me I can tell you! I am getting it done early this week for a change as I'm pet sitting (actually 3 chickens and a sheep/lawn mower called Fleur) for our neighbours this week, 3 eggs for breakfast tomorrow yum :-) Also our poor Dog Toby's back legs/tendons/god knows what isn't getting any better, he isn;t even 3 yet) so we are looking at x-rays and a referral this week in an effort to finally get a diagnosis rather than more expensive drugs.

Thanks to all who are kind enough to visit and leave comments, you are all lovely people and I do try and visit you back and comment  ( as often as blogger and rubbish french internet allow, tried commenting this morning but gave up ...)
Toby (8st) Lydia about 6!


  1. Your card (and dog) look lovely - hope some solution can be found for Toby's health issues


  2. Lovely card and gorgeous colours. Toby looks a handful but I expect he is a "gentle Giant"

  3. This is a really cute card Donna... I hope Toby's probs are sorted soon.
    Thanks so much
