Hi all - hope you are having a happy week.
This week at Less Is More , it's a ONE LAYER card and the theme is
"The Eyes Have it"!

I had more or less decided not to enter my card, as I was not very happy with it, but after spending most of today at the Leeds General Infirmary, some crafting seemed like a breath of fresh air tonight,
so here I am after doing a bit of tweaking (still not happy with it though)!

Some of you  know of the problems hubby and I have had for many years with my elderly FIL who is almost 105.   He is now slowly deteriorating, and had two very bad falls last night (just 2 of many, recently) - hence our dash to hospital this morning.   I must say - the LGI staff were amazing.
So - here is my card.
The stamp is "Miss Austen" from Indigo Blu , inked with Jet Black Archival.
Eyes coloured with a mixture of Distress Marker Iced Spruce and Promarker Cool Aqua.
Quote typed and printed on my 'puter.
Apparently, it was William Shakespeare who
first used that quote, in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Is that true?!!

Happy Crafting and
thanks for popping by!
