Card for Mary

Morning all, got to make this quick as this morning I've got someone coming to insulate the loft and they could be here anytime between 8 and 12:30 and teenage son is still in bed , and the way things go if he doesn't get up soon they will arrive at 8 and he will be stuck in his room as he won't be sneaking around the ladder with his walking frame.

This morning I have made a card for Mary. Mary is Mandy's (a sprinkling of glitter) mum in law and has just under gone surgery which was a bit touch and go, so they are celebrating her survival, and Janette suggested it would be a nice idea to inundate Mary with cards. Mandy agreed and has offered some candy as an incentive, more details on her blog here.

I also decided that I might enter myself for the dt team at die cut dreams, the theme is pink and girly. Now as many of you will know I find pink a real challenge but I must be getting better as I've made another pink card I actually like , that brings the count to 2.

I used a Tilda image that I won in a truth or lies competition Susie runs along with one of her die cuts the papers are some freebies and some checked from stash. The flower is from k and co I think. I coloured the image in promarkers and added a bit of sparkle with some stickles.

Hope Mary likes it and makes a speedy trouble free recovery.
