The Rose..........also an update about Natalie

Good evening all you lovely jubbly people how are you all? Well my daughter went back school yesterday, her scratches are healing nicely & the dressing on her tummy is healing nicely we were able to leave the dressing off tomorrow. The person who attacked her is never allowed in her class & the staff are to be a lot more vigilant. I have told them Natalie requires on them to be her hears, eyes & voice she cant do any of that herself so has faith in her carers to do that job. The nurse would you believe didnt think the cut on her tummy warranted a plaster.........I always thought an open wound requires covering at least for a few hours. When you get a needle what does a nurse do after??.... she applies a plaster!!! She is now very grumpy & screaming her head off now so I'm gonna get on & do this quick, think she heard me talking about her to you lol.
Right tonights card is for the 'Less Is More' challenge....yes you heard right, I know I'm a girl who loves her bellies & flowers these are what can make a card beautiful enough to drool on....ok so thats what I do as I'm patrolling blogland lol.
Now the challenge is add a touch of red.....just remember my motto is 'MORE IS MORE' usually lol

I stamped a sentiment stamp onto white card with Momento black & then stamped a rose in Firebrick Red distress ink. This is 'The Rose' named after my dad, I used to sing the Bette Midler version on karaoke when I'd set up my DJ decks to make sure sounding etc was right & it was my dad's fave song he liked to hear me this is in memory of my best dad!!!

The bottom I cut out using a WOJ die. Yes I've still done inside but even that is less & the 4 gems on the front well they made me do it........I blame them you know......sssshhhh I wont tell if you dont!!
Right I'm off to try  & settle my daughter off......hence the tryyyyyyy!!
My hubby is sitting next to me he has just done me a cuppa & as he looked over all he could read was where it says WOJ.........whats a WOJ he asks.........its not drugs is it??? ROFL they make you laugh dont they lol.
I'm really away now
Tatty Bye peeps love's ya & thank you for stopping by on my basic CAS card.....I will be back tomorrow with something very ott.....I hope lol....

Well Vicky I would have bet my life you couldn't do it but by god you have and its beautiful!!! xxx

Glad Nats is back at school and at least you have the knowledge that the girl in question is no longer there with her and she is safe!! I hope they take on board Nats needs and this never happens again!!

Love to you all and I hope you managed to settle Natalie down!!! Chanelle xxx

Hi Vicky, I have been MIA for a good few days due to due having a sickness bug along with the flu. I was in bed for days but have been up and about today.
I cant believe that happened to Natalie! The staff should be much more alert and as you say be her ears, voice and eyes...such a frightening thing for her. Glad the wound is on the med, i thought that a wound should be covered too to stop infection getting in!
Love your card, i am not very great with CAS designs but should really give it more of a chance! The white and red works so good with each other!

Hee, hee - I think Craig would've noticed if you was on drugs before now!!! That did make me laugh! Although my mum and that's the same, I talk to them about blogging and DTs and this that and the other and they just look at me like I'm speaking a foreign language!! Oh well, at least I've managed to convert Sam!! (Or he knows what I'm on about anyway!)
I'm glad Nat's gone back to school and well done you for standing your ground! It sounds like they've taken you seriously in the end.
Gorgeous card - very elegant and classic. And what a wonderful sentiment behind it. I'm so sorry that you've not got your dad around. But I'm sure he's watching over you and thinking how wonderful you are!!
Hugs, Marie xxx

Now I'm glad that Nat is so much better.

Simple,elegant and beautiful!
