Hello, Saturday

Hi, everyone. I hope your having a great day. If you'\re on the east coast, I hope you are safe and secure. If you're in this drought I hope you are keeping cool. We are definitely in the drought section. It is so HOT!!!
We had a flag football game today and for the next 10 saturdays. (8 & 9 year olds)  It sdtarted at 1:00 and ended at 2:30 PM. It was sweltering. The only thing to get me out in this heat is to watch one of my grandsons.  I actually made a card this morning and I'm glad I didn't wait until after the game. I don't know that I could think clearly enough.
This card is for a longtime family friend, I even went through high school with her daughter. She fell and broke her neck in May and I just found out about it.She was with her husband at the hospital having some tests done when she fell. She is up and walking around now but she will not be able to turn her head. I thought I would send her a few cards so she will know we are thinking about her. This wll be the first one.
Here is the recipe:
Botanicals Lite - card feature cut @ 7.87 x 4.3, flower layer cut 3 times @ 3.09 x 4.30
Home Accents - flourish cut @ 3.06 x .65
The card measures 4 1/4 x 3 3/4. I cut one of the flowers green and one of them pink then pieced the flower on the card and glittered it. I also glittered the pink flourish. The stamp on the front is one I've had and the sentiment inside is computer generated. I made this card in less than 50 minutes start to finish. That is fast for me.

Thanks for looking, God bless and hugs, Stephanie
