With Love

Can't believe it's Friday already - who pinched my week? We're going to have the decorators here over the weekend, so no doubt I'll be kept busy moving things around.
I was asked about the ticker for the Mongol Rally - my eldest son is taking part in July this year along with three of his friends. For those who don't know, they have to obtain a car and sponsorship (half the sponsorship goes to Mongolia and half to a charity of their choice) then drive the car to Mongolia (any route they choose) and the car is left in Mongolia when (or if) they reach there. It should take anything from 4 to 8 weeks depending on border officials (and the car). Their team is called Ghenghis Khanny Skate (they're all skateboarders) and they're raising money for the local indoor skate park they helped build. They've bought their car and are now busy securing sponsorship for the trip. Gary is teaching himself Russian at the moment in preparation! I seem to have talked myself into printing all the sponsor logos to stick on their car!
Any way that's still in the distance (I'm trying not to panic), here's a card I made yesterday. Apologies for the slightly wonky photo!

I've used an image from Whoopsi Daisy sheet 60 which I've coloured with promarkers. Papers are from First Edition Spring Drop pad. All dies are from Spellbinders. Flowers, sentiment, ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Inky Impressions - shape it up
