Totally Tool

I think this is quite a boring card but I did enjoy just fiddling this afternooon and cardmaking! It is self explanatory - the tools have been cut out and glued on to the oval and then covered with Crystal Effects. I have so much of that Chocolate Chip ribbon that I just must use it!

The DSP is from the Washington Apple SU pack and I coloured in the tools with Basic Grey, Riding Hood Red and Pacific Point. The background colours are Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Tempting Turquoise.

Thank you so much to everyone who is sending prayers and thoughts for Ian. It is his birthday today but I am not sure if he recognised that. The physios stood him on his feet on Thursday - he was very weak but they got him to shuffle a couple of steps. Every little baby step means progress to me.
