Feel better soon ....

.... that's the message that my mum and I have sent to my uncle (her brother).  On Friday he woke with a nose bleed - not normally a problem.  But my uncle ended up being taken to hospital in an ambulance in shock!  He lost over a litre of blood - and ended up somewhat confused and befuddled!  The NHS is a wonderful institutiion - it might have its problems, but when you go in as an emergency - they pull out the stops to sort you out.  My uncle was on a drip to replace the fluid, kept in and had the blood vessels cauterised on Saturday.  That evening he was sent home - and he tells me that he slept like a log!!

So it's only right and proper that we send him a card with our best wishes for a quick recovery.



This was quick and easy to make.  The frame and sentiment is from one of my favourite rodent sets - Frame-it!  And I thought the tortoise image was perfect for my uncle - he's not exactly ill, but he needs to rest and recover - he did lose quite a bit of blood.  He can't blow his nose for ages :)

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Frame-It; Woodware - Take it Easy
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarkers: Lime Zest, Pear Green, Warm Grey 1, Warm Grey 5

I spent a little while in my craft room last night working on a challenge for the Waltz on Thursday.  Wednesday is my sister's funeral.  Please keep us in your thoughts, it's going to be a tough day for us all
but particularly for my mum.  See you Thursday!

What a super card! I love the double sentiment and I always love a sentiment held within a border. Hope your uncle is feeling better - what a horrid thing to happen. You'll be in my thoughts this week Deborah, especially on Wednesday.

You're all very much in my thoughts - sounds like your family is having somewhat of a hard time. i agree with you about the NHS too. Take care all of you & wishing your uncle a speedy recovery - slowly does it! Delightful card/idea.
