Friends Tri Shutter Card

This is the first time I've made a card like this but it sure was easy.  I got the tutorial off SCS, the image 'Ladybug Hugs' from Deedee's Digi's.  It actually would have or could have been used for last weeks challenge at Crafting with Deedee but as usual I'm a day late and a dollar short.  So instead I'll enter it in the cards for SCS Tri Shutter Card.    I used SU So Saffron paper with paper from K & Company, little gems and large crystal gems.
I still can't believe how easy it is to make if your interested here's the link: just to give you a hint you need a piece of cardstock 12 by 5 1/2 inches then score it at 2,4,8,10 then decorate it, it's that easy.

I'm sorry I've been quite busy with Mom lately seems like she is really confused lately and Saturday night she asked me to take her to the doctor because she was short of breath, stomach pains and she couldn't sit down it hurt her bad.  Well after some questions I decided she wasn't going to quit until I took her to the doctor, but the walk in clinic was closed so was Urgent Care, so we ended up at  the ER.  After getting inside she decided she wasn't hurting as bad as she was but we were there so almost 4 hours later they sent us home.  Her EKG was great, X-rays awesome, Oxygen levels perfect, Blood pressure high but otherwise she was fine.  She got all the TLC she needed and was released, she felt so good she walked all the way to the car in the parking lot and I was smiling cause it was midnight and she was happy.  Sunday she was great all day while I played downstairs making this card then I went to the airport to pick up my daughter & her husband who were returning from Puerto Rico and a cruise.  Well its just been a busy around here for the past few days so Mom is resting and she's just fine, me I'm headed to bed it's been a long day.  Remember to 'Pay it forward'.

Oooh so pretty! I have never done this kind of card because I think it is to difficult but so happy to see you have mastered it here. Great job. Love your new blog look and praying for you sweetie. Hugs.

This is gorgeous!! I haven't attempted one of these yet. Maybe I will eventually get up the courage. Then again, I thought the Marquee card I made was going to be a whole lot harder than it was.
Beautiful work.
