Hi Bloggers

OMW!  Haven't the nights drawn in?  It is really starting to feel like Autumn now.  Sam goes back to school next Wednesday so we're gearing up for that at the moment, then it's downhill to Christmas all the way.  

I go to my 2nd SatScrap Scrapbooking Crop this Saturday so I have to prepare for that this evening as I'm at work tomorrow.  I've got lots of unfinished projects so I think I'll be concentrating on those this time.

Anyway, today I'm posting a card that I made when I was teaching for ACL.  It's using the same flower stamp that I used on the black/red/white tag I posted a couple of posts back.  This time I stamped the flower onto shrink plastic and coloured it in with Sakura Stardust Gel Pens.  I used Papermania paper that I've had forever and my Nestabilities Standard Circles Large to create the frame, the aperture and the mat for the computer generated greeting inside.  My class really liked this card and were Wowed by the shrink plastic.

My MIL starts her next session of Chemotherapy next Wednesday so she goes for blood tests on the Monday then if her blood is good she starts treatment of the Wednesday.  She does that for 3 consecutive weeks then she has a week off then the same again until the specialist says she's good for a break.

Hope you like!
