Get well soon, Harrison!

Hi, and a warm welcome!

If I make lots of typos, it's because I'm tuckered out, lol...........and that's because our 10 year old grandson, Harrison, was taken into hospital, suddenly, night before last, with acute appendicitis.....Ken and I have had 7 year old William, 4 year old Finlay, and little Yvie-Grace, who turned a year old two days ago, so their Mummy and Daddy could stay with Harrison, at the hospital.
He's been so brave!  The surgeon said it was a very nasty, grotty, pus-filled appendix, and he didn't know how Harry had put up with the pain......but the poor little thing wasn't in any pain, until it flared suddenly, two nights ago!

Well, hopefully he'll be home by tomorrow, and will be pampered back to full health........and Grandma can sleep all weekend, lol!

Get well  soon, Harry!
(Sorry 'bout the red-eye, lol.)

I'm still trying to get a few "just in case" cards made, and put to one side......just in case..........and made this one a few days ago.....very quickly, because it's another clean and simple one..........

Apart from the base card and the ribbon, everything came from a freebie kit, included in a craft magazine..........

I haven't done any decoupage for yonks, so this made a nice's also not the "fiddly" kind of decoupage, and had only three simple layers, so did come together very quickly........all I did was change the colour of the poodle, which was originally white, but the only person I know who has a poodle actually has a black one........AND just for a change, lol, I DIDN'T use my Promarkers, lol, and used plain old colouring pencils......felt really strange, haha!

I used the pencils on the edges of the little rose, too, because it looked a bit "flat" without shooshin' it up a bit.......

.........did the same for the corner flourish.........around the edges of the two DPs.........and called it done!

  1. Oh no AM! Glad to hear Harrison is a brave boy though and that he's already on the mend. You should be making him a get well soon card... just sayin....
    Love this 'just in case' card. The poodle is too cute :)

    Your card is lovely, I have that little kit and haven't even opened it yet but have seen some lovely cards made with it. Glad you gave decoupage a try after a long while.
