My grand-daughter, Chloe, was 11 a couple of weeks ago and I made a book card for her, using the Jayne Nesterenko new Patchwork Polly stamps. It didn't take as long as I thought it might and the effect was rather nice. I think Chloe was pleased.
The day after she came home from school, playing on her scooter and fell and broke her ankle! Very traumatic especially as that week she was meant to be playing 'Nancy' in the school play and Chloe had been practising and practising for weeks, driving everyone mad. She is also going to senior school in September so this was her last week at her old school and they had lots of things planned, like being picked up in a limo, swimming and bar-b-q at hospital pool, leavers' mass, bowling and just general goodbyes. It was the end of the world!! Not only that she had to go in and have an operation on the day of the school play so all that practising was for nothing. (Mind you her sister Emily (5) said the play was 'rubbish' and 'no -one clapped''!!) Anyway she has been in to school on her crutches, been the centre of attention and doesn't feel quite so bad. She is still not in a full cast because of the stitches - she has to go back next week for further x-rays and re-alignment.
I have bought a Seraphina & Friends CD (as you do) from Doolicraft and thought I would make a 'get well card' for Chloe and I couldn't miss Emily out, so I've made a little one for her too. Thought you might like to see them. I'm quite pleased with them.
This is Emily's little card
and this is Chloe's
It is called a Doolirama Tunnel Card.
