A 'Get Well' Card for our Lovely Friend Riet......

Good morning everyone!

As you can see by the title of my post, this is a card for our lovely friend Riet who is very poorly at the moment. She is always such a friendly blogger taking time to visit hundreds of blogs every week and her presence in the crafting world is greatly missed at the minute. I'm sure you will all join with me in wishing her a speedy recovery as we send our wishes to her and her family.

I have used one of Ruth's lovely images from A Passion for Stamps - this one is Jenny in Bed and is available now. The papers I've used are all from the Basic Grey Blush range, the flowers are EK Success and Woodware punches and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz ticket.

Today at work we're having a fund raising day for Breast Cancer, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We're all dressed in pink from head to toe and we've baked lots of pink goodies to sell........ I wish you could smell my office just now, it's sugar heaven, lol!

You will see a link on the sidebar of my blog where you can visit the official Breast Cancer site and click to provide a free mammogram....... please spend a couple of minutes doing that today....... thank you sooooooo much ;o)

Finally I would just like to thank my teamie Renata for this award, bless you girlie ;o)

Have a great day folks, I'll be back tomorrow with my card for a new Basic Grey Challenge.
TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Hey Tara,

So nice to see that you're also thinking about Riet. She lives just maybe 25 km from my home. I never met her, but I also follow her blog and send her cards.

And about the award, you're welcome!
