Hats off to you My Dear Watson

Morning Folks and thanks for popping in

My sister and I are now waiting for the results of an MRI scan 
that our Mum had yesterday, and until the results come back
of course she wont be allowed to come home. 

Not that I think she is in a fit state to come home but you 
know what hospitals are like - All out for the Weekend !

But at least the full time Carer will be at Mums home today
so that's all in place. 

Now for my card for today.

Been using up scraps of paper and paper stash bits and here is the card

Used up a scrap of shaving foam paper by stamping with Clarity Stamp

Used the "wrong" card blank so made it "right" by colouring with Distress inks

Then used a sheet of Craftwork cards paper to cut out the hats, etc
stuck onto the mounted design with sticky pads.

I highlight areas on the topper paper with pencils. and used an 
alcohol pen around the mounted topper in orange to bring the colours all together. 

Think it works - what do you think. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Well that is it for now.

Thanks for popping in and see you again hopefully tomorrow
