Thank You So Much...

Hello everyone! Before I get started on my card I want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to all of you who have left comments, sent emails and made phone calls about the accident that my son and I were involved in. I can't tell you how touched I have been by the overwhelming support I have received. Thank you so very much to all of you! {hugs} You'll be happy to know that the stiffness is much better and we are recovering very well.

Today's card is going to one of the school Mums who stopped within minutes of the accident and stayed with us until the ambulance took us to the hospital and then took all the stuff out of the car (carseats, pram, school bag etc....) and dropped it to my house. I chose to use this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge as inspiration.

I started with a base of Kiwi Kiss, layered with white and topped that with two pieces of Raspberry Tart DSP. The sentiment is from the retired SU set Warmest Regards - one of the sets I use a lot because of it's beautiful script and small, useful size - stamped in Jet Black Stazon. This GORGEOUS image is from the brand new August release from Our Daily Bread Designs called Happy Birthday. (Yes, I know this isn't a birthday card, but honestly - couldn't you use this beautiful watering can for all sorts of occasions??) I've stamped it in Jet Black Stazon and coloured it with markers and then cut it out with circle nestabilities and popped the whole panel up on foam tape. I finished off by adding three Kaisercraft Snow pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Happy Birthday (ODBD), Warmest Regards (SU)

Paper - Kiwi Kiss, White, Rose Red, Raspberry Tart DSP

Ink - Jet Black Stazon

Accessories - Markers, blender pen, Large Classic Circle and Large Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, foam tape, Kaisercraft Snow pearls.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!! :)
