Unconvential get well

Isn’t this turtle just the cutest?

This is the inside of a card I made for my dad. He’s really sick and in the hospital, again.

A few months ago he was diagnosed with AML leukemia, which is pretty aggressive. Now, he is in the hospital with pneumonia which he just can’t shake.

I have made lots of masculine cards, but today I wanted something bright and cheery to take with me while I sit with him at the hospital. So, I came up with this little guy

The image is from Gina K and my sentiment is from some dollar bin somewhere. My DP is from My Mind’s Eye. I added the rickrack, which I hardly ever use, but I didn’t want a bunch of ribbon on this card.

My layout is from a SCS challenge (SC192) which just happened to work really well with this card.

Happy Stampin'!

Just love that card, with the various dots that work so well with the turtle shell pattern.
