Aren't Parents a Worry??!!

Hello Everyone - I hope you are enjoying a good week.

Well, never mind worrying about children - parents can be a worry too can't they? My mother in law was taken into hospital yesterday, with fluid on her lung - Richard has gone to see her this evening, so I should know how she is soon! My own Mum has fluid on her lung at the moment too - has been ill since August last year actually - she is about to go back into hospital for a repeat of the operation she had last October - but, on the up side, she said at the weekend that she does think she is getting better! I really do hope they will both be back to good health soon.

Anyway, this is the get well card I made for my mother in law.

The image is from Whiff of Joy - I stamped it 3 times, so was able to paper piece the elephant and the bunch of flowers she's holding. The papers are My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow. I think the card is a bit over the top flowery really, but I am fairly pleased with it. I added some gems onto the flowers in the bouquet and stickles around the image. The die I used to cut the mat and layer for the image is Nellie Snellen.

I loved using this sketch which is this week's Friday Sketchers challenge

I'm also entering it in the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions Challenge - Anything Goes

That's it from me for now. Thanks for looking.

Love, Andrea xx

Hi Andrea,

First of all - so sad to know that your m-i-l is not well. My heartfelt get well soon wishes to her. Relieved to know that your mum feels she is improving...

This card for your mum-in-law is just so sweet... I have a feeling she will see it and get better (just by looking at this happychappy elly!) What a thoughtful card that is.

Meanwhile you better take care of yourself.
