au revoir

Spaghetti and Meatballs all covered in Cheese!!

This card was made for a special friend and it is also entered in the latest challenge at the I Love Digi Challenge Blog; Emboss It!

Materials Used: Digi's from Meljen's Designs, Copic Ciao markers, Sakura embossing pens, SU card stock and DP, Cuttlebug Script embossing folder, Spiral folder punch and buttons from my stash pile.

The free digi's I found on Meljens designs blog for this card are just adorable and perfect for making this thank you card for our au pair Aude, who left us to day to finish her travels around Australia.

Aude has been living with our family since the beginning of February and after five months it was sadly time for her to leave today to finish her journey before flying back home to France in October. At this very moment she is driving her way up the north coast of Western Australia through Geraldton, Monkey Mia, Exmouth and Broome (to name just a few) then she will visit Darwin and Alice Springs before heading back down the East Coast through Queensland, Sydney and finally finishing in Melbourne.

Aude has been a wonderful addition to our family and our two sons have adored having her around, growing up in a large family with lots of brothers she was all to happy to play and wrestle with them and has the patience of an angel.

The reason I chose the stamps I did for this card was because of Aude's love of cooking, she is a qualified pastry chef and spoiled us rotten with some gorgeous deserts and her dinners even had my youngest loving his vegetables!

Aude I know you will visit my blog when you get back to a computer, we miss you already and hopefully one day we will all travel to France to see you and some of your delicious deserts!

Au Revoir!!!
