JAI 76

I have been meaning for simply ages to do some of the great challenges on Just Add Ink and at last have done so.  Don’t know why it’s taken me so long!!

The challenge this week was to get inspiration for your card from this lovely photo:

Inspirational Photo



Doesn’t this look absolutely gorgeous.  Can just see myself sitting outside on the balcony in a comfy chair, drink in hand, looking out to sea and daydreaming.





The card I have made is this one.  I used my brayer to get the blue effects on the left.  The background paper on the right and the word ‘hello’ is SU Naturals Ivory but it seems to have come out in the photo as a pink colour.

I used my Big Shot to cut out the letters using the SU Timeless Type Alphabet sizzlet dies.

I really enjoyed doing this challenge and now I have started will attempt to join in and do more.

Hope you are all having a good week.  I’m making the most of the ‘holiday’ from health issues but it will be all on as from next week with 3 appointments already lined up – next week another full body scan and blood tests, the following week an Oncology appointment, and the week after an appointment with the thyroid surgeon again – they seem determined to remove my thyroid but this will depend on the results of the scan and whether they can locate the recurring cancer elsewhere.  When I went a couple of weeks ago my CA125 tumour marker had risen again, this time from 490 to 1020!!  That is the highest it has ever been so this is making me a bit nervous.  Oh well, just keep hoping and praying that one day they will be able to get me back into remission again.  I’m still missing my little Rosie dog terribly but am able to handle it a little bit better now.
