Purple is the colour

Morning all - just a quick blog today 
if that is ok. 

Need to get ready for the hospital appointment to check on my lump 
on my forehead that the Dr said was not a melanoma but was skin cancer.

So good in one part but a worry in the other. 

I am sure it is nothing to worry about but will keep you posted. 

So here is my card today purple rose-bay willow herb. 

I used one of my watercolour sheets where I have picked up 
colours from my glass mat. 

Used raspberry inks for the flowers - added a cut out Hunkydory acetate butterfly

mounting onto a purple backing card onto a white card blank. 

You can not see it but there is a hint of sparkle on the flowers. 

I do tend not to put a sentiment as it then leaves it open for my 
"people" to decide what they want. The other day I had to put 
Happy 90th Birthday on 4 cards !!! 

I would like to enter this for the following 


Thank you for popping in 

I will came back later today all being well and give an up date as to 
how things went. 

Thank you so much for all your kind words and support. 

Glad to say Mum has now (for now) accepted that she needs help 
and that is such a relief.
