'You are there ...

... and I am here'

This was the theme of day 66 on 365 cards: A Sentiment #2, which is the only challenge that I needed to catch up (with except today's and I haven't done that).

I deliberately left this one, thinking it would be a good card to make when John goes back into hospital, which he has today.

I've used Forever Friends papers and 3d stickers, so I'm linking for this week's challenge: buttons and bows (because the papers feature these).

Challenge 8 on Truly Scrumptious is 'to make a card with more than one fold', so this also qualifies for that. Challenge 64 on Paperminutes is also to make a 3-fold card.

And I know that I ought to be going to bed rather than sitting here, but I really wanted to get this done so I could take it to John tomorrow.

Update: I thought it would be a good idea to have an area to write my message without it being readily on show, so I've incorporated a flap up piece - it is fastened with velcro so it can be lifted up and then secured back down again:
