First card using the Cricut

I've finally made my first card on the Cricut, using the font & shape from the SCAL library. This one was made for a colleague who is moving away from the area & will be greatly missed
Tilda watercoloured using distress inks
The original idea was to sit her on the clover leaf, but it didn't look right, & I was running out of time to go to her leaving meal, so it had to do like this lol

Thank you for all your messages of concern re my daughter. She is much brighter today, though still tired & a bit forgetful with things which have happened recently. I am going to keep her off school tomorrow (especially as it's a mentally taxing day with the lessons she has tomorrow). I will send her in on Friday when it is a much easier day, inc cookery which she is looking forward to.

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave.
