My Buddy is Bruised & Battered

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who has popped in for a visit.  You are very welcome, I love that you take time to do that.  For any not feeling to good at the moment here are some (((((hugs)))))  Help yourself if you think they might help.
Just back from visiting Elaine who is in a bit of a state.  Elaine was involved in a car accident on Friday.  OMG!! when I saw the pictures of the car she is really lucky to be alive.  The brand new car she got for her birthday back in August is a total right-off.  Not only was the car a mess after hitting another car it came to rest inches from a live Electricity Pole.   Everyone has been telling her the can can replaced, we would not be able to replace her.  She is at home in bed for another couple of days then has to start trying to get about.  Luckily she has a Shower Room in her bedroom.
When I got the news it was a right shock, fairly knocked me off my stride that day.  
Myra:-  Glad I managed to bring back some memories.  I see you call yourself "The Coconut Ice Lady" now that`s something I have never managed to master!!!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments on our Anniversary Tea.
Carol:- No problem having Afternoon Tea at Gleneagles they cater for lots of Dietry needs
Here is the card I made for Elaine:-

I was sitting having my lunch when it suddenly dawned on me I had not made a card   ...  panic stations!!!
SW new Striplet Die which cuts a dream
I cut the Striplet into the card then made a frame using the outside edge of the Die.  Backed it with a piece of Lilac card and added pearls
Sentiment done on the computer  ..  a bit too much distressing I feel!!!  Matted it onto a piece of the Lilac card then onto some white
Triple bow using narrow Organza Ribbon

That`s it for today 
Thank you very much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
