Use it Up swap

The theme this September for the BQLPC swap was "Use it Up - Spare Cards".  Great I though I have a few spares this should be easy.  But you know how it is, you get attached to them and I couldn't decide which ones I wanted to send.  In the end I went with the 'use it up' option and created the bottom card.  I have had to post a photo of it unbound as I posted them before I remembered I hadn't scanned them.  
The top card is from Alice and I think she has trapped scrim or something similar between plastic.  It is quite thin so could be cling film.  It is very effective.   The card below is from Jan and she has used up her scraps.  I had some spares done along similar lines but decided to keep them, now I'm pleased as it is always nice to get something different from those you have sent.
Good news at last on the Keith front.  He saw his oncologist on Monday and had a new chest xray which shows that the chemotherapy is working.  His tumour in the lung has definitely shrunk and his consultant is very pleased with the result.  Two more chemo sessions, next one on Thursday, then a fresh set of xrays and scans before they make a decision on any future treatment.  We know its inoperable and can't be cured but at least its going in the right direction.  In addition they have got Keith's pain under control and he is feeling a lot better.

Good news about Keith, I'm so pleased for you both. I hope the car doesn't turn out to be too expensive.

Loved your story about the car. Have done something similar in the past. Hubby just said "women drivers!"

I understand your attachment to your cards. I have extras from long ago when we swapped and just can't seem to give them up!

glad to hear Keith is feeling better. Best to both of you!
