Thinking of You

Sorry for such a late post. Its been a hectic day as usual!! This morning Evan was at his dance class, the last one for the summer and his last chance to practise as we are in our first ever Ballroom and Latin competition!!! We are nowhere near the standard of some of the others competing but we are going "for the experience" and what we have achieved in such a short time is something we should be proud of!! Evan is dancing the Waltz and the Cha cha cha and I am dancing the Tango and the Paso Doble!
Anyway on to crafting. Yesterday my lovely Ruth in my downline had an operation which I know she was understandaby nervous about so I sent her this card to let her know I was thinking of her.
Its Blooming with Beauty coloured in with markers in Lavendar Lace and Always Artichoke. THe card base is Lavendar Lace and I stamped the flower head in Basic Grey ink all over the background

Used some black gingham ribbon to decorate the corners and also did some paper pricking with the mat pack and tool

I decided to also decorate the inside (inspired by my lovely SJ who always does this) and I am pleased with the results.

Hope everything went OK Ruth and Mark and the girls are looking after you!!

Will try and pop back on tomorrow to let you know how we did!!
