For my friend...

..Rosa who is moving back to Spain! She has been living in England for almost 12 years, and originally came over to improve her English. She liked it so much she stayed, fell in love and married an englishman and had a baby boy. But now the time has come that she wants to move back to Spain with her family, and who can blame her! I will miss her sooooo much and wanted to make her a card that showed how much I care for our friendship rather than a goobye / good luck!


The image is from sugar nellie and is a leanne ellis design 'luvvy' which I adore. Coloured with my whispers pens, cut out and stuck to CS with 3D foam. The scallops the the bottom of the card was created with my SU scalloped border punch. The sentiment is from SU 'Best Yet' set, cut out with my nestie square. I have bought all my SU products from Jules who is just the best so head over to her blog to have a look at the latest catalouge! CS is coredinations and the dotty embossed borders are from a cuttlebug border embossing folders set.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of congrautlations on my engagement, and for all those of you who have asked here is a picture of my engagement ring.

I love it! It's a princess cut diamond set in platinum. My wonderful boyfriend picked it all by himself, he has such good taste (well I think so!), bless him!

Hope you are all well. I'm still plodding on with my assignments. Only 7 more weeks and they'll all be handed in and my life can return to some sort of normality!

Big hugs, Vicky x
