One of Naomi's young horse riding pals had a nasty fall yesterday morning as they were preparing to go riding. Naomi phoned whilst I was food shopping and when I arrived at the farm 5 minutes later, having abandoned the trolley at Customer Services, it was immediately obvious that she needed to go to hospital.
Unfortunately the news for Cally is not too good as x-rays revealed her arm is badly broken in 2 places and will require surgery. She is to be admitted to hospital today and her parents have said they will keep us updated with any news. Obviously we hope the surgery is successful and wish her a speedy recovery but it will be several months before she will be back in the saddle. Incidently, they were really impressed with how calmly Naomi had dealt with the whole situation today - managing to deal with 2 horses as well as reassure and calm her injured friend without a hint of panic. What a star!
I made a card for Cally using this sweet image and sentiments from LOTV Stamp Set 3- Occasions following Bev's sketch for LOTV Challenge 58.
I coloured with Promarkers and then matted onto several layers of coloured card, leaving a narrow border each time. The beautiful background card with glossy daisies is from DCWV Glitter Stack and my flower embellishments were created from scraps of paper using a daisy punch before being glittered up with Star Dust Stickles. A hint of Star Dust Stickles was also added to the cute image as it looked a bit flat being surrounded by all that sparkle.
For the inside decoration, I punched another daisy from a panel of blue striped card and matted it onto deep pink cardstock. Then I ran some pretty blue non-fray ribbon down the sides before adding another glittery flower with a button centre in the corner and stamping the LOTV sentiment.
We hope to visit Cally when she comes home after her surgery but in the meantime we will be sending special thoughts to her and her anxious parents ... especially for tomorrow.
