Hooray ~ You Did It!

Happy Monday to you and I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  

After spending several days with my best friend in the hospital in Charlotte, NC, it was good to be home yesterday.  Yet my thoughts continue to drift back to her knowing the long road to recovery she has in front of her.  I'm happy to say her back surgery was a huge success and she is getting stronger every day!  

Today I'm sharing the card that I gave her before I left - celebrating her surgery and our sixty years of friendship!

Meet The Bird Ernest from Artisan Joggles.  Isn't he a hoot! 

He is colored with Copic markers and fussy cut to go on the standard A2 sized card.  I used the Twisted Stitched Border by Simon Says on the edge of the solid peach flap over the coordinating vertical stripe.  I tied a simple knot of deep aqua organza ribbon and added the plastic HOORAY tag under the knot with a clear glue dot.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
