Janice's birthday card

Today has been another hectic day.  I rushed home from golf to shower and change for a
routine hospital appointment.  Just as we were about to set off, I picked up the letter,
only to find that the date had been changed and I should have gone LAST FRIDAY!! 
Rang up and apologised and then rearranged for next Monday. 
Later this afternoon, Barry and I spent some much overdue time in the garden. 
Then I taxied  Barry through to Barnsley and popped in to see my baby sister Anne-Marie.
Now I am home and ready to relax, but needed to update my blog - so here we go.
Sister-in-law Janice's birthday is on Sunday the 24th, so I wanted to make sure that I
had her card ready for when we see her on Friday for a day out.
This is yet another scallop circle easel card (think I am getting really good at these now,
 with all the practice that I have had.!)  Janice 's favourite colour is red, so it was
an open and shut decision there.  I combined Cherry Cobbler with
Very vanilla and Old Olive.  The flourishes are stamped with the swirl from
Creative Elements.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  
The flower was cut using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.

I can safely post this as Janice doesn't blog!!
