No fuss for this card .

Hello there every one ,thank you for calling in . Welcome to my room .
 Before I share today's card I would like to say that I appreciate all the wonderful comments I get.   I am sorry that I don't always get around to all the  return visits that I hope to,  but I promise I'll try as soon as I can .
Doug had been progressing really well , then , like a bloke does , took one too many risks ,over extending  himself . The result being , he had a fall .A few bumps and bruises  muscle weakness and worse,  a loss of confidence . For  the last  few  days he has not wanted to walk any where with out me being at his side . I'm sure all this will pass eventually and he will return to full strength .
Today's card is a male birthday card.

                                                        Chocolate Chip , Old Olive,  Naturals Ivory.SU
                                                        Lovely as a Tree, A little Birthday Cheer, SU sets .
                                                          Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy, ink SU
                                                          Ribbon from my stash .
                                                              Sizzix Ovals Die.
Really  is a no fuss or frills card . I guess that might reflect my sombre mood as of late . In any event I enjoyed making it . Might even make a pretty pink card now .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
