I hope you're all well? Bit grey today isn't it, but I guess that's the perfect excuse to stay in and make cards all day ay!! I had such a fab day yesterday at Bluewater with my Sister-In-Law, Nephew, Niece and Father-In-Law. We had a delicious lunch in Ed's Diner which is like a 1950's burger bar but the food is absolutely yummmmy!! Then we went to the cinema and watched Rango - it was ok, some funny parts but not the best film I've seen. Think we should've gone for Tangled instead but nevermind! And then we went to the new Cadbury's Coco House for hot chocolate, what a treat!! They do afternoon tea, cakes, sundae's, all sorts of yummyness but we were still stuffed from Ed's so just had hot chocolates. Poor Fred (F-I-L) ended up having a coke spilt all over him which Lucy (S-I-L) and I found hilarious!! Fred did giggle too so that was ok and we got the cokes for free, lol!! A really great day :o)
Onto my card, this one I've made for my Uncle and as the title suggests it's the first time I've ever made a get well soon card. My Uncle has just had his prostrate removed as he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer just before Christmas. Fingers crossed the docs have caught everything in time and he will only need a little radiotherapy. My Uncle is certainly feeling very positive about it all so that's a good sign. Here's my card...
Close up of LOTV's 'Little Nurse'...
Inside of card...
It's a bit girlie isn't it, but I hope he likes it and it puts a smile on his face. I did try to 'Man it up' with the brown but I couldn't resist the pink - the colours just go soooo well together don't they?!! And the big flowers were a new die I bought at the Farnborough Craft Show that I haven't used yet, they were burning a hole in die box let me tell you, lol!!
Ok, off to make another card now :o))
See you soon guys,
