I hope you all had a better weekend than me and a thank you to all those who left messages on facebook or emailed me. For those of you who don't know, my son said to me before he left the house Thursday evening to make sure I was awake at midnight as he wanted to wish me a Happy Birthday so when my mobile rang at 11:24 I thought it was just that. Unfortunately it was that call that all parents dread when their son/daughter has only been driving a few weeks. He said, "Mum,I've had an accident". My iphone went dead, dam batteries on iphones, and my legs to jelly as I scrambled upstairs to find my Daughter's mobile ringing. He went on to say he had hit a tree! He was in 2nd gear, as he had just come off a roundabout and was on a straight and just about to change gear when he said the car started to veer to the right and he really doesn't know why it did that. Well he knew he didn't want to be on the other side of the road, so he turned the steering wheel to the left to try and correct the car. The end result was he went up the kerb, skidded down an hill and into a tree and then fell a further 20ft. It was my car he was driving and it is a write-off, so I have a few hurdles to overcome this week. I am soooo very thankful that they all made it out without a scratch. All his friends think he saved their lives, as he acted so cool and controlled the car. Hubby said it would have been easy to roll it , but I don't want to think about any more scenario's as I'll be in tears again. Needless to say my birthday was a complete washout, but I still have my Son for which I am goooo grateful.
Fortunately I had made this card before I became an emotional wreck and the theme us LLC girlies will be following this week is "paint". A real easy one for me as I love my gesso, don't know if you have noticed I have again used those gorgeous new Vintage Garden papers from PionDesign and speaking of which, didn't the girls do a fab job of showcasing them last week, a big WOW!
I have used a vintage image and look at the beautiful lace prima flower, isn't it gorgeous.
A close up of the flower arrangement.
And a last look
Have a good week.
