Saturday sketch #105 + Moving Along With The Times #48

This card was made using card from the Papermania 12 x 12 textured card pack.  I used my Hougie Board (love this board) and Fiskars cutter to make the steps.  Backing papers were downloaded from Tinker & Co. they are having a sale on at the moment on certain paper kits.  The image is a Bugaboo freebie (I don't know if it is still available as a freebie), the mats are nestie dies and the flowers are a mixture of punches (I think Woodware and C & C, from the days of Alan & Barry, but don't quote me on this).

I am entering this into 2 challenges

Saturday Sketch #105 - sketch - hope this qualifies as only the middle step follows the sketch.

Moving Along With The Times #48 - Folds

An update on OH, he's not had any more pain (thank goodness) and he has read on the internet that a mixture of lemon juice & olive oil will help make the stone smaller, so he has had this mixture twice in the hope it will help dissolve? the stone.  He goes back to the hospital in 2 weeks for a follow up appointment and hopefully the stone will have gone by then.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and if you live in the UK I hope you enjoy the bank holiday.  Happy crafting. :-) xx
