The Gift........for a special friend....

Hello all you lovelies did you all have a enjoyable weekend? I am so sorry for being so late today I've had a really bad day.....lets just say if someone says goverment cut backs once more I will scream!!! My daughter leaves school this year but unfortunately she has been forgotten about by the authority & now they running out of time to find a day centre that has the appropriate nurses to be able to care for her... To be honest its typical but never mind you dont need to hear my moaning.
My card today I have done for my best friend she is having a roughty toughty time at the mo & I just want to remind her I'm always there for her.......I have made a sentiment for her card on the comp but my printer has run out of ink so I will put the sentiment on tomorrow.
My friend is like me & loves Angels she also loves black & white or black & cream, so I've gone mono which is my fave....

This is 'The Gift' which I thought was perfect for my friend as she really is my gift....we have been thru some stuff together & we still come through smiling. I think its cus we are both as crazy & nuts as each other lol.

She is coloured with Copics C7, C5, C3 & C1. I've also added silver stickles, black stickles & stardust stickles & her dress I scattered a slight dusting of glitter. The flower I made my self with lace & a button from my stash.

The silver charm & chain I got from my jewellery stash. The charm is a love heart with 'Friend' written on it.

The black rose in the corner I added stickles to. I attached 2 ribbons across the middle the bottom one is a gold toned organza ribbon & the top one is a black velvet ribbon. They are both from Crafty Ribbons who do both type of seam binding now, the modern & the vintage.

The paper I used is 8x8 La Creme Stack which you can get from Crafty Emma's & she has this on special at the minute. Its gorgeous paper the black on the top layer is gorgeous flocking. I have a also decorated the inside to compliment the front. The gems are from my stash & of course the beautiful stamp is from
 Crafts & Me. Pop yourself over to see the new releases Teresa has in & dont forget if you register for a newsletter you will receive 10% off new know what that means for what you save you could buy another stamp lol.
Not sure if I will have time play for myself tonight as I have commenting catch up on & its not fair for you keep visiting me if I dont visit you......besides I get really bad withdrawal if I dont see your creations, you are all my inspiration!! So the ones I have not had chance visit today I'm on my way so pop kettle on & get biccies at the ready lol.
Take care everyone & thank you so much for popping by to look at my card I really appreciate it.
Tatty bye

Hiya Vicky I am back trying to get some commenting done, unfortunately I can't sit at the computer for long periods of time like I am used to. I am so glad that I am able to visit my favourite peeps at last I have sooooo missed you all, I am in desperate need to see beautiful things and boy am I seeing loads. This is absolutely stunning, your friend will love this big time I am sure, I know I do. That image, the mono colours and embellishments are just perfect.

Oh i love this card vicky! I have a thing for black and white and like your friend, cream with the black too!
Typical government! I have a 12 year old nephew who has severe disabilities and has had the same problems all the way up through his school life. It must be so frustrating for you!

Take Care

You card is completely gorgeous!

Hi Vicky, all I can say is typical about the local authority,the left hand never seems to talk to the right, I'm begining to think that no-one in any organisation that deals with children or young adults that have a disability do or anyone in my sons school either. Not as bad as yours but my son was suppose to have a wheelchair review booked in every 6months so he would get seen at least once in a year to 18 month period, if that makes sense. Yes you guessed 2 years later and many phone calls later I finally get through to someone who actually listens and books him an appointment for review as he was getting really painful backache from his chair.
Hope you get somewhere suitable for your daughter to go and not too much travelling involved , with the bonus that she likes it of course.
The thing that always puzzles me is why things always seem to take so long when you and I both know that if you decide to sort out a problem you just get on withit and it rarely if we have control takes longer than a couple of days so what do the penpushing administrative staff do?

Love your card and your friend is lucky to have you as your card is beautiful. I'm sure she would do the same for you if she crafted and it's sure to give her a boost .
Hugs Julye

This is really gorgeous hunni. I am so sorry your friend is suffering at the moment and it is good she has a fantastic friend in the background like you. I am also sorry that they don't seem to have made provisions for your princess leaving school but it is typical. I hope they sort things for you soon. You do not need anymore problems in your life at the moment.

Hi Vicky, I know exactly how you feel about governments´ cut backs! It´s exactly the same in education and it´s always the kids who are suffering! It´s frustrating and makes you feel so powerless! I hope things will get sorted out for your daughter. Love your card, so pretty in black and cream! I´m sure your friend will appreciate it. HUgs, Frea

Mina said...
