Salute Her


So the trip to Domino's Pizza was a great success... so much so that Scott has  decided that he can make the pizzas and we have to pay for them! A friend has come up with a great idea though, wait till Tuesdays and then we'll get two for the price of one ;)

A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me if I could make a card for her daughter who is off to Army College today. I knew immediately the image I could use for this and went for Salute Her from Saturated Canary. I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do but one night just as I was about to drop off to sleep it came to me.... what I would actually do with the card.... and it kept me awake for ages after that!

I have distressed the dog tag a wee bit with some alcohol inks. Unfortunately I don't actually have that many so had to make do with what I had. I did enjoy playing with them though so perhaps that's an idea to give Andy for my birthday.

So this card is for Sarah, who starts a new chapter in her life today. Good luck Sarah, I hope it all works for you!
