Until Further Notice...

I've come across a new-to-me digiblog called Create with TLC,that specialises in sentiments, with many generous freebies. As soon as I saw this sentiment I knew it was right for a card for a friend who has been gravely ill after heart surgery, I just needed to find the right image to go with it. You might think it's not really a "get well" type sentiment and it isn't. Frank's surgery did not go as planned and he has spent many weeks completely out of it, in intensive care and in limbo as it was uncertain whether he would recover at all. Thanks to email, we've had almost daily updates on his situation and at last, things are going the right way. He has moved hospitals to one only an hour from his home and, fingers crossed, he will be making his escape soon:). He is alive, each day another tube or drip or drain is removed and I think he is celebrating being able to continue getting older:).

Card is fairly simple: I used a Rachelle Ann Miller stamp that I bought second hand, shamefully never used (by me) until today. Image coloured with copics, edged with Distress Inks, cut with a Nellie Snellen frame and mounted on a Nestie shape. The paper is Prima, I saw it and fell for it big time, the reverse is yummy too. Twill tape is from stash. The image is straight, it is the pattern on the card that is an irregular pattern:).

I'm entering the Simon Says "You gotta have friends" challenge and the Spoonful of Sugar Animal Crackers challenge with this card.


  1. LOVE this!! What a great card!

  2. Anne - this is a really fun image and sure to bring a smile to Frank's eyes, and the senitment is to apt for the situation.
