Sending Love & Sympathy

Hello everyone, hope you have had or are still having an enjoyable day. I had a quiet morning at home and did another load of washing, some of my things this time. Priority here for washing is hubby and son's workclothes, then towels and tea towels and lucky last are my things.
I caught up with my friend when I went up to the shop and chatted a bit about how her Mum went with the skin graft. She went in Tuesday and they took the skin from the other leg, but were going to put the graft on today. I caught up with her again as she came out with us for a meal tonight and the doctor wasn't real happy with the condition of her leg so has put off putting the graft on till probably tomorrow and she will have to be in hospital for a while and then have some rehab. She hates hospitals but needs to improve if she wants to stay in her own home. So, hope things go well for her.
I spent the afternoon with my Thursday group. Jane was home from her cruise to Vietnam and gave each of us some cute little vietnamese figures which are magnets. Thanks Jane and glad you had a good time and are back home safe!
No choir practise tonight so I went for a walk with my friend Fran and also took the dogs. Went a bit earlier so it was just on dark when we walked down my street.
Well I'm slightly earlier than usual as I have made a CAS style card for:
Less Is More challenge week 42 - Theme - Silhouette
I decided to make a Sympathy card as I don't have very many of them in my stash.
I have used SU Early Espresso for my card base. I added some embossed lines to make a frame and then I stamped the silhouette image and sentiment from SU set Love & Sympathy onto Whisper White cardstock in Choc Chip Ink, I used a circle as a mask and applied Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress ink over the white card. I finished off with a bow I made using some of the ribbon I picked up off a stall at craft on Wednesday.
