LIM # 19 In The Frame - and some sad news, sorry

Morning all, hope you are ok.  I've been reading this morning that a couple of my bloggy pals, Clare and Vicky, have been in the wars so sending you both tons of love and get well quick wishes.  I had something similar many years ago and thought I had broken my back, the pain was so awful.  Big hugs and mwahs to you.

Before I move on to my card, I have some sad news for those of you who have been so kind about my mate Ali and her darling cat Teddy.  Despite the very best efforts from a superb team of vets and Teddy being allowed home last Monday, the brave little chap lost his fight yesterday morning.  It was as if he had lost the will to live and really didn't want to go on.  So the hardest decision had to be made. 

I said on Thursday, very briefly, that I would explain my LOTV card - well, yes, it was made with so much love because I knew what was coming and my head was so full of thoughts and feelings - oh lord, I've started myself off again.  Pass a tissue someone please.  OK, enough - onto my card for today.

This week's LESS IS MORE challenge is a One Layer Card challenge with the theme of In The Frame.  I actually really like these OLCs but today my heart isn't really in crafting so that could explain my first two attempts at being inky-messy ending up in the recycling.  However, on ferreting through my stamps I found this little love from LeLo Designs by Stampavie


So, I gave up on trying to be arty-farty-creative and just stuck with the character stamps that I love.  Lightly coloured in distress inks with Prisma shading.  Pawprints and Miaow are from Wild Rose Studio.



Hugs, Sxx
