You never know what you might find

What a fantastic day I had with my family today, I especially appreciate this day as Sunday was not so good. My Uncle is really enjoying his time here in Sydney and I am so happy that I was able to take time off from work to act as a tour guide around Sydney. Both my mum and dad haven't been in the best of health but today they were able to join us on our merry adventures and it was great having all of us go out today.
Tonight is the one night that I watch a TV program and I have to admit its Desperate Housewives. Whilst I was watching the show I decided to go through my stash of papers and let me just say I have found a heap of papers that I can use on future projects including the simple and gorgeous paper I have used in today's card, this paper is about five years old. I kept this card simple focusing on the pattern already on the paper. I used my all time favourite embellishment being rub-ons and I am really happy with the way it looks on the card. I have especially made this card for my best friend who is going through a really hard time at the moment, hopefully this will brighten her day
