JAI #39

Hello everybody, Gosh! I had one great weekend. Drove 700kms to Perth on Saturday morning, met with our family friend who had come from Adelaide. We had so much fun and yummy dinner. They had two kids who are in the similar age range as mine and so kids also had heaps of fun too. Then on Sunday went shopping and drove back 700kms again back home. I am so excited about driving for 400kms at a stretch while coming back. Athough I ended having a sore bum and back, I felt great. I can't describe in words. I love driving, just my passengers get sick :)  Anyway, took a day to recover from the sore bum and back. oh! before I go over to my card for JAI! I should say, while shopping, I saw a beautiful blue heels in a shop at Perth. It was so beautiful with a large blue rhinestone that I sat just right opposite to the store with a cuppa and admired the heels while I slowly sipped the coffee. It was 15 minutes before my son discovered that I was admiring the heels instead of drinking my coffee lol! and then the rest of the family forced me to keep moving :( I so want that heels. I even dreamt of it last night :) I have to ring my friend at Perth so see how much it costs and ..... (you know!)  I have weakness for shoes :)
So I ended up making the blue card for JAI still remembering the blue shoes. This week's theme is Just Add..... Blue. This month is Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month. Isn't is awesome for JAI team to do awareness challenges? Love love the idea!
Here is my card for the challenge.

I love damask and so I decided to use it for the background. The label dies are from Spellbinders and flowers are from PTI. Impressions on the card both the polka dots and the woodgrain are from PTI and so is the sentiment from PTI's Flutterby stamp set.  Love the color combination. I picked it from  Moxie  Fab World's Tuesday Trigger inspirational photo. Here is the photo for you.

Hope I am not too late for Tuesday Trigger challenge! Thanks JAI for the awareness challenge. I love it. Especially being a mental health professional, I am all for awareness for mental health. 
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
