A thank-you card for a Hospital stay...




My girlfriend had just been it the hospital unexpectedly- she had a small cut on her thumb and while she was bowling she noticed it was really hurting and swelling and there was a line going up her arm. Long story short- she had a very bad infection and it could have really gotten life threatening! She's still recovering now...but it is taking some time..She asked me to make her a card for the staff at the hospital. This is what I came up with . "Riley" is ALWAYS good to have around! DP is Nook and Pantry by BG and I colored Riley with copics. His blanket and pillow are paper pieced. The nurse's names are printed on white glossy cs to kinda look like the board in the hosp rooms that the on duty nurses sign in on- and the inside sentiment I saw somewhere...wish I knew where now- not exactly the same cuz I couldnt remember the whole thing. TFL! Happy Saturday! We have some GORGEOUS WEATHER here in Ohio- Hope you do too! :)

Wow, what an infection that must be. I hope she is better soon. You did a beautiful card for her to proudly give to the staff. I love the paper piecing you did on this, and I love your version of the sentiment! Great job! Best, Curt
