Stamp Something this weekend!

Hello,  Firstly, thank you very much to everyone who has asked after Steve.  He is recovering well after his op on Thursday but he hasn't really been the most 'patient' patient which has made things somewhat more difficult than they needed to be!  Bless him though he is only trying to reduce my workload but you know what's it's like, it just makes more work than ever plus, Poppy dog has got some awful stomach bug and I keep finding out.  You can train a dog where to use the toilet but when they are poorly, there is no hope.  She is now on starvation for 24hrs in the hope that she will be better very soon or it will be an expensive trip to the vets again with her!
Anyway, back to crafting!
I got all excited when I was blog hopping and got to Stamp Something blog as I really liked their recipe so I went and made a card using it and it was only when I was going to post it and I cross referenced the challenge again and found that I had missed the vital element!   The card to be made was meant to be sent to a young girl, Jaimie,  in the US who just weeks ago was maliciously & seriously attacked in her bed and lost her Mum to the same brutal thugs and is now trying to recover with her Dad.  I couldn't possibly begin to explain the situation regarding Jaimie so please pop over to Stamp Something for full details of how you can help too.  
The card I made is for my MIL so I made a seperate card for Jaimie and will be posting it off on Wednesday.  I now don't feel that I can submit this card but it was made following their recipe which is: 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 embellies. 

Seems it was a great show at the NEC, maybe next year!  I hope everyone has had a really lovely weekend!  Thank you for popping by.
