A card....just because!

Evening all! I had some new images come through the post this morning and thought this one would be perfect for a card for my best friend, Sue, so I made her a card....just because!..... just because she is such a special friend and because we were popping out for a little walk and to get some fresh air and I thought I would make her a card......I had to throw it together VERRRRY quickly though and it took about half an hour( okay, I know thats not quick for most people, but I am a world class *faffer* and believe me, that is superfast lol)
I used an 8 x 8 pre embossed card blank, bits of BG, my ek success ash branch punch, retro daisy punches, prima hydrangea, some crystals and some dark brown ink. Oh yes and some scraps of lace and choccie brown braid..
We went for a walk at Raystede, which is a local animal welfare centre. They have a couple of large lakes, with hundreds of ducks and geese. They also have a lot of various breeds of chickens and a rather large and ugly turkey. lol. They also have a lot of dogs, cats, aviary birds, goats, ponies, rabbits and small rodents.

Its free to visit and there is a nice tea room and also a charity shop to have a look about in and maybe pick up a bargain.

I think it has done both the girls good getting some fresh air today. Lauren seems to be a lot better today and Chloe is definately on the way up too, thank goodness. She is however getting fed up already with her antibiotics....whoops, there is still another 5 and a half days of doses left....he!he!he!
