8x8 rocker card for a friend who is leaving to go back to America.....

.....because the Border Agency, in their wisdom (not), decreed that after 12 years of being legal here, working and paying her taxes, she has suddenly become an illegal alien!!!!! Our crafting group will miss her very much :o(  Bon Voyage Brenda.

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. {{{{{hugs}}}}} for those who need or want them.

Strangely enough, I didn't make this card specially for my friend, but when she saw it she loved it so much that I decided that would be the one to give to her, even the lily is weeping for her :o)

All card used is Papermania textured.
Own photograph of course.
Spellbinder Grand Nesties used for nearly all the card cutting, plus Cheery Lynn foliage die.
Nothing else I can say about it really so I hope you like it :o)
Jackie xx

Beautiful image Jackie and I love the card template you have chosen for it. The Border Agency definitely get it wrong sometimes don't they? Hope your friend settles to a wonderful life and that she keeps in touch with all her crafty friends back here. Carol xxx

Stunning card Jackie, just love the image, I am so sorry to hear about your friend the good one's get deported and the criminals get to stay, It seems to me that the world has gone mad the government are I have decided a very stupid lot of bumptious old farts. They have decided in their wisdom that I am fit enough to return to work, I appealed against the decision in March and still waiting to hear, I phone them up nearly every week but still waiting for it to go to Mandatory reconsideration. OK Rant over sorry. Love Alison xx

Lovely card Jack and knowing Brenda loved it even before you gave it to her is a bonus. I'm glad we got to see her before she left. She should have arrived back in the USA now. I hope she does well back home. xxx
