Above & Beyond...

6 days... :)

Hope you are all having a great week. Thankfully this week is going MUCH better than the last! When things don't go the way you had hoped or planned it is so wonderful to be able to have friends that you can call on for help. I am VERY fortunate to have more than one of these such people :) And so I felt that I would make each one of them a card to let them know just how much they mean to me.

For this card I used the sketch from Retrosketches and the colour theme from The Paper Players Challenge. This card is going to a very good friend and colleague of mine who helped me out last week when I had been at a birth for over 24 hours and awake for 40+ hours. I have never had to call on my backup for relief before and I had to make this hard call and was so fortunate to have Allison to call on. Not many people would get out of bed at 12:34am to come and help you out!
