"Just for You"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and not suffered any damage from the past couple of days storms.
We were very lucky no damage although quite a few trees down round us.   Roads blocked by them but no reports of anyone hurt, so that`s a blessing. 
Thank you so much for popping by today, I know time is very precious at the moment.
Nothing much happening here apart from furiously making some more of my Christmas Cards.  I am carrying on with all the "flat" batch ones.   It is amazing how many you can get done when you are not making each and everyone different.   Tomorrow I will start on my "special" ones, hopefully get them all done over the weekend.
Nattyboots:- LOTV   ..  short for Lili of The Valley
I know exactly how you feel, I often sit and ponder over certain "short cuts".   For a long time I really struggled with WOYWDW I had to ask for that to be translated.  What`s on your work desk Wednesday:- easy when you know what it is.
Today`s card is a card made for our friend Anne who had an operation for Breast Cancer  recently.  She is now going through Radiotherapy every day.  This is really taking it`s toll.  Hazel and I decided she needed a card to let her know we are thinking about her so this is it.

Base card approx 5x7
White Centura Pearl card embossed with Sue Wilson`s Tapestry Embossing folder
One white and one Tilda Card SB Die Cuts
I Die Cut 2 ovals cutting the Burgundy one in half, placing either side of the sentiment to make it look like I matted it.  The next size of Die up was to dominating 
Rose made using Tilda Card and my all time favourite SB Blossom Five Die
Leaves SB Foliage Die

That`s it for today thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
