A boy's best friend

Another cold and wet day. Yesterday was absolutely terrible, some poor person had there car crushed in a shopping centre carpark and another few cars next to it took a bit of damage when a large gum tree came crashing down in the wind. Luckily the people were all in the shops and not in their cars.
Our youngest son has been working as part of a service crew for a rally car for the last few days and I think over the coming weekend as well. Today there was a crash and one of the driver's was killed. His co-driver/navigator was airlifted to hospital but seems to be okay. He is one of my son's friends and is so lucky to have escaped serious injury. I feel such sadness for the other lad's family. I'm not sure how old he was or whether he was married and had his own family.
There just seems to be a lot of bad things going on at the moment.
On a lighter note, I looked after our lovely grandchildren today and also upgraded my mobile phone as my contract had run out. A touch screen phone (not an I-phone though) now I just need to work out how to use it, LOL.
I sat down tonight to make a card and found a challenge with a sketch and you had to use one of their images, so.... I worked away and when I had finished, I realised that I had used a Bugaboo image instead!!!
Oh well, I may have another go over the weekend and use the right image this time.
 This is what I made .....
