Get well.....

Not a lot of crafting has been done this week as we have been quite busy.  Wednesday we went down to Weymouth where the Olympic sailing is taking place, had a brilliant day, the weather was nice and lots of things going on.
Yesterday was spent with our grandchildren down in Taunton where we always have lots of fun but come home exhausted!!
This card I made last week-end and although I haven't made it for our Club paper piecing project I have done more paper piecing using the Memory Box umbrella die...
Not sure where the backing papers are from as its just odd sheets from one of my pads and I dont have the cover any more.. Memory box dies also used are, Circle border and Meridian border.
Off to do more samples cards for our craft meeting next Wednesday.

I'm just watching the sailing now Anne, not sure if I've missed something or it's still to come as I thought we were in the running for a medal when the second leg took place today. But haven't we done well on the water and on two wheels and so much more.

Your card is really lovely, sure to cheer up the recipient.
