Red, White & Blue

Hi and welcome to my blog. If it's your first time here, I hope you find something to interest you.
I had craft this morning with Shirley and we made 3 lovely cards. I usually go with a friend (Fran) and the last couple of weeks we have also picked up one of her friends (Helen) who is staying in Adelaide for 3 months and comes from Townsville in Queensland. Her mum had a stroke and has had to go into a nursing home so she came down to spend some time with her. Well my friend got called in to work so it was just Helen and I. We went out afterwards for lunch and I took her with me to the craft store because when I was there the other day I forgot to take my Copic Markers to get refilled. We had a good chat and she even ran into someone who has moved down here as we were leaving the cafe. I cut my thumb yesterday and decided to forgo the bandaid as the cut is on my right thumb and I couldn't get a good hold on the scissors. Had to make an emergency visit to the supermarket for bandaids when I knocked it putting my hand in my bag to get the keys out. Blood everywhere!!! This is the second bad cut in the last 2 - 3 weeks on the same thumb. The first one was a stabbing wound from a pair of scissors when I was sharpening them and has only just healed.
Here's my card,
Basecard is SU Pacific Point. I adhered a strip of white card in the middle and then I used a Couture Creations die called Paisley Border and cut it out in SU Real Red. I used a piece of white behind it and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black in Pacific Point ink. The tatty ted from Do Crafts called "Lost in Thought" was also inked in the Pacific Point. I added 3 red bling on the LH side.
The inside of the card has a piece of white and I added 3 strips of the blue and the sentiment is from SU Curly Cute inked in Pacific Point.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
