The Great Outdoors

OK so this is strange, so far I've avoided the new blogger but today it seems like I'm stuck with it. Sorry that I have been absent for a long time but as you will have read in my last post my Mum had a fall and went into hospital. From being able to get about (I say that in the loosest of terms as it was agony for her to walk)  with the aid of a walker, she can now no longer walk. My Sister and I with her best interests at heart have been trying to talk her into going into a care home for some time now. This has now been taken out of our hands and three weeks ago Mum went into a care home from the Hospital. This has taken a lot of the worry away from us as we now know that she is getting proper care 24 hours a day, rather than 2 times a day morning and evening. However it does mean that we have to sort her house out and sell it. Something were not looking forward to. I was 8 years old and my sister was 4 when we moved into the house as children, we have so many happy memories there.

Anyway onto my card for today which is The Great Outdoors, just what is being asked for by the Stamping Sensations Challenge blog this month. I was lucky to get my order in for Sheen Douglas's first USB earlier this month and so I have use an image from that for this card, which is for a friends Birthday today. We have just had a few days away in the Lake District and I've tried to colour the mountains how they look at the moment up there, with the bracken turning to a lovely rust colour, with a bit of green showing through (I might have more green than rust). I used my Spectrum Noir Coloursoft pencils to colour the image. I have also decided not to use a sentiment on the front of the card too.

Well I'm off now to get this posted before they shut the door and it's to late to enter the challenge this month. Thank you to everyone for their kind comments on my last post regarding my Mum.

 Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
