Forgotten Friday 23- A Birthday card for a Friend

Hi Folks, it's been a funny week this week. My lovely Daughter broke her ankle while on holiday in America. She slipped while standing up from coming down a water slide. It took the medical profession two days to realise that it was broken. Today has been a worry, as the original airline refused to take her, and she is coming home on a BA flight, while her Boyfriend is on their original flight. They fly in to seperate terminals at different times. The Insurance Company forgot to tell her that she had to fly FROM a different airport, so she had to get a taxi for a 30 plus mile trip to the other airport, by herself with crutches, and all of her luggage. However, on the plus side, she is flying business class, but it has been very stressful.

As my post appears, I will be heading to get her, very relieved that she is on UK soil again.

This week, I have chosen to use a lovely stamp by Hero Arts, a cling stamp, which I haven't used before. I needed to make a Birthday card for a friend of mine who turns 30 this weekend. I had plans for a much more elaborate card, but today just went pear-shaped. So, my offering is a much more simple affair, hopefully she will like it. I have used Distress and Adirondack inks to make my backgrounds, and decoupaged the butterflies. I have used some untouched, but very pretty lilac seam binding as the only embellishment.
Don't forget to look through your stash, join in and make something with your forgotten or neglected items. Leave me a comment, and I'll pop along to take a look. Thanks for popping by, Judith xx
