I'd like to share a card I have made for my BIL Pete. Thank goodness he is making a great recovery but we woke on Christmas morning to find that my sister had been rushed to his bedside at 1am as he wasn't expected to live having been admitted only a few hours before.
Luckily he very slowly pulled through, hour by hour and we are thrilled today to hear that it is expected that he may be well enough to be discharged next week.
It is so true, we really do take so much for granted and this
just proved it. So unexpectedly things can happen that can make a dramatic change to a persons life yet we all think we are immune to it.
Pete wasn't really 'dealt a great hand' as he has a particular disability anyway.
All I feel I want to say about his illness is that it is a very well known illness that plays havoc with the immune system if faced with simple infections so getting Influenza B along with it caused this awful situation.
Well I am thankful that all of my family are enjoying good health and I hope yours are also.
The challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges is 'Celebrate' and I made this card with that in mind, how very grateful we all are that Pete is progressing well. I am also entering the card into the present challenge at Sketch & Stash Challenge and the theme is to use any of their previous sketches so I have chosen the popular Sketch No:8. Also my newest stash part is the image, I bought it especially for Pete so it is it's first outing - along with the lush blue card candy I got for xmas!
Ive used Nurse Stella by Bugaboo, yes, 'Quelle surprise Rodders' as old Dellboy would say!! I am going to try to use at least one piece of paper from my scrap files for each card I make from here on in! I wonder how long that will last!!
Sorry for the long post and thanks for all of your lovely comments!
