Less is More....

Hello....I have managed to get to my desk today to rustle up a little card for this weeks Less is More Challenge - Witches & Wizards.. it is also one layer week..here's my card..

 
I used DI's to make the moody moon..lol...but I cant tell what stamp I used as I have thrown away the packet!! Doh!! but I used Versafine ink.
 
Its been a sad week again here I'm afraid. My brother in law Bruce died suddenly last Tuesday...he was in the garden and my sister found him collapsed...she had only left him for a few moments.  He didn't complain of feeling unwell...nothing.  My sister as you can imagine is distraught so is their only daughter...I've been staying with them but I'm home for a few days now and then will go back on Monday for the funeral.  He and my sister were very involved in their local bowls club and Bruce was well known over the County (Surrey).  My sister has received over 70 cards from people who knew him and it is expected that the funeral will be well attended. 
 
 He is the third close member of our family that has died this year. I will be glad to see the back of 2013!!
 
Anyway...I wish you all a happy Thursday and thank you for stopping by.
 
Hugs
Jan...xxx

  4. First of all Jan I would like to say how sorry I am for the loss of your brother in law. How awful for you all and I am not surprised you want to be rid of 2013.

    Your card is amazing. I love the stamp and the moon is fabulous. Sometimes Less is More cards are so striking as yours certainly is.
    Hugs Sharon. x
