Wendy's Sketch challenge

Well I've managed to get a card done for Wendy's challenge, don't know how but I did it. What a day we've had. Decided to go and get some weedkiller before they get hold on the drive. John (hubby) came with me and he travels in his wheelchair in a wheelchair accessible kangoo. Got there and back OK but then it all started to go wrong. As John was reversing out of the van the lead to the power control got caught on the seat belt fitting and smoke started to pour from the control. The chair wouldn't move and he was stuck on the ramp. The leaver that you pull inorder to move the chair manually wouldn't move and he was well and truely stuck. Our good neighbour came out to try and help but he couldn't release the lever so tried to fit the wires to a connector. No joy just kept shorting out. Looked like John was going to spend the rest of the day stuck on the ramp. Then Steve our neighbour had a brain wave and went and got his trolley and lifted the back wheels of the ground and then between us we manouvered it off the ramp, he was then able to release the lever and we were able to push it, although it was difficult, into the house. The repair man came and took off with the control to repair so now I'm having to push this blooming great wheelchair around . So if John upsets me I can push him out of the room and leave him there, as if I would!

Well back to the card. The card base is Bazzill bling and the Dp is papermania. The stamped image is a stamp I got in Jacqui's candy which I watercoloured and layered onto gold mirri board. The flowers are punched and the sentiment from Craft Creations. The ribbon and little gems are from stash.

Well that's it for now just gonna check out some blogs.

Thanks for visiting
