Not done much

Get well card
crafting this week.  I made this card last night.  As usual with me my cards never turn out how I imagine them.  I still have another get well/thinking of you card to make.  Both cards are for ladies in my church who both had major surgery last Wednesday. 

Backing paper is from Tim Holtz inked with stormy sky distress ink.

Another weekend another card

I was out most of yesterday and forgot I had a get well card to make for one of the young girls from my church.  She has been out in Laos for the last 2 years and never been ill, back in Scotland 1 week and has such a bad throat infection she went to A&E straight from church last week.  She was admitted and given antibiotics by I V and routine bloods were taken.   It was found she has some rare blood disease, that, had she not been here where we have all the facilities she would have died.  There are no medical  hospitals with all mod cons in Laos.  Those who can be are flown to Thailand in emergencies. Imagine my surprise to see her at church this morning not 100% recovered but getting there.  Anyway here is the card I made her.
Background paper free with  Making cards magazine everything else from my stash.
